California Serial Killer Suspect Arrested

DNA brings arrest of ex-police officer in Golden State serial killer case after decades


 

A break in the case and the arrest came together in "light speed" during the past six days, Schubert said, though authorities refused to reveal what led to DeAngelo.
Sacramento Sheriff Scott Jones said detectives with "dogged determination" were able to get a sample of DNA from something DeAngelo discarded, though he wouldn't say what the item was. The genetic material was not a match, but there were enough similarities for investigators to return for more and they said they were able to get a conclusive match.

It is great that the slow wheels of justice have finally turned but....

I am pretty sure that the "sample" wasn't his sample but a relative from some routine check with enough alleles to draw attention to family relations.    That is concerning.

Sadly he will die in prison now that he had lived a full life with out paying for his evil deeds.

Hub says they used blood this way

And get his medical bills paid.

Why he would not "disappear" some time in the past decade when he knew it was a matter of time is what gets me.

Lawyerliz said...

Yeah. I guess bad guys like familiar places too.

LBD said...

He probably figured he would never get caught by now.

Lawyerliz said...

I wonder why he stopped? Maybe he didn't.

The claims rate for the newly unemployed is the lowest it's been since 1969

Looking there. The killer was caught through DNA from ancestry sites.

Lawyerliz said...

Not even a distant relative who was in a criminal database.

A distant relative who used 23andme or Ancestry.com.

Surprised they have enough alleles to match up, comvincingly.

Rob Dawg said...

He may not live out his natural life. It is very likely that the Ventura County DA will seek the death penalty.

Rob Dawg said...

> Surprised they have enough alleles to match up, convincingly.

There weren't enough at first. It took subsequent samples to get enough to arrest.

New post.

Wow!!! Only 72. looks like he was rode hard and put away wet. It is hard for me to even remember what 72 was like. Lost in the mists of memory.
