Has The “Golden State Killer” Been Caught? A New Update! Michelle McNamera’s Book! Patton Oswalt’s Update!

Has The Infamous “Golden State Killer” Been Caught?

Wow, there may have been a break in one of California’s biggest murder rampages – the subject of the late Author Michelle McNamara’s terrific new book:

Patton Oswalt’s late wife was obsessed with this crime spree, and her book was recently published posthumously…and now, her work may have paid off!

According to an exclusive report in “The Daily Beast”:

“Joseph James DeAngelo, 72, was arrested on two counts of murder early Wednesday morning, according to the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department. The department did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The Sacramento Bee reported on Wednesday that a suspect was arrested in the decades-old rape and murder case, and a Fox affiliate in California reported there had been a “significant break” in the case. Both outlets confirmed that authorities plan to announce more information Wednesday afternoon. Several other local outlets also confirmed the news.”

The Daily Beast goes on to report:

“DeAngelo is the suspect in the Golden State Killer case, said Billy Jensen, one of the writers responsible for researching I’ll Be Gone in the Dark. The book was written by Michelle McNamara, who worked with investigators on the Golden State Killer case. McNamara died before the book could be published and it was finished by Jensen, researcher Paul Haynes, and McNamara’s husband, the comedian Patton Oswalt.”

Jensen, Haynes, and Oswalt tweeted on Tuesday night there would be a “large announcement tomorrow” in the case. On Wednesday morning, Oswalt called the news “surreal” and said in an Instagram video: “Think you got him, Michelle.”

This is amazing news if true, and you can read more about the latest developments here:

I heard Jensen, Haynes and Oswalt discuss the book last month:

Bravo to the entire team who worked with McNamara, and I hope it paid off with the capture of this horrific person…

  1. It would be a fitting legacy indeed, if the book helped catch that killer.
    Best wishes, Pete.
