U of M graduate worked to uncover 'Golden State Killer'

The Golden State Killer is suspected of committing dozens and dozens of crimes in Sacramento County in the late 1970s True crime writer credited for renewing interest in Golden State Killer case

Joseph James DeAngelo, 72, was jailed without bail almost two years to the day after McNamara died unexpectedly in her sleep.

Oswalt helped finish the book after McNamara's death.

The Golden State Killer, who has never previously been identified, is believed to be responsible for at least 12 homicides and close to 50 rapes between 1979 and 1986 in Sacramento County, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Oswalt, who took to social media to say he'd welcome the opportunity to visit and speak to the suspect to get answers to his late wife's many questions, called Wednesday "one of the more surreal days of my life". That being said, some of her hunches about his moves around the state are uncanny. "If you know anything about the cases, you know what this could mean", he said. When she died in 2016, her husband comedian Patton Oswald saw to it that the book was published. Despite an outpouring of thousands of tips over the years, DeAngelo's name had not been on the radar of law enforcement before last week, Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert said. Pictures of DeAngelo today portray a grizzled, bald senior citizen who was a police officer during the time of the attacks and had only a minor criminal record. McNamara never identified DeAngelo in the book.

But on Thursday, Steve Grippi, chief deputy district attorney for Sacramento County, said detectives narrowed their search by using genetic information available through commercial genealogy websites furnishing personal family histories to consumers who send DNA samples in for analysis. She attributes his arrest to innovative new DNA processes along with "good old fashioned" police work.

Billy Jensen, the journalist who worked with Michelle McNamara, the late researcher and author of the bestselling book I'll Be Gone In The Dark, has confirmed to The Daily Beast that an extra chapter will be added to the paperback, covering the major arrest of DeAngelo. Meyers, however, chose to give the comic the space to talk some more about the Golden State Killer story.

Authorities were seeking weapons and other items that could link the suspect to the crimes, Sacramento County Sheriff's Lt. Paul Belli said.

Debbi Domingo-McMullan, who has been employed by the Smith Unit in Lamesa for 14 years, was 15 years old when her mother, Cheri Domingo, 35, and her mother's ex-boyfriend, Gregory Sanchez, 27, both were brutally murdered by an intruder in their Goleta, Calif. home on July 27, 1981.

He is thus far been charged with eight murders. "I hadn't thought about it for so many years", she said.

He said the high-profile arrest of DeAngelo should raise legal and privacy concerns for the millions who have submitted their DNA to an ancestry site database as there are no strong privacy laws to keep police from trolling. She also wrote about why and how the Golden State Killer case became her obsession later in life.

"The legacy #MichelleMcNamara has left for her daughter of determination and finding justice for so many is incredible!"

As early as 2013, writer Michelle McNamara was concerned that her book, I'll Be Gone in the Dark, about a serial murderer in California, might have an unsatisfying ending.
