Golden State Killer: 'You helped catch him,' comedian tells late wife

This shoelace was marked as evidence. It was found at the site of Brian and Katie Maggiore's murder

Speaking with The Daily Beast, Jensen has said that the added chapter to McNamara's book will go through DeAngelo's life, building a timeline of the Vietnam War veteran's actions to see how it aligns with the movements of the Golden State Killer's reported crimes.

An announcement this past Wednesday morning about the arrest of a man California authorities believe is the East Area Rapist/Golden State Killer was a surprise to many people.

The woman, an amateur genealogist, said she helped investigators by parsing the family's genetic tree as they searched for other potential suspects. McNamara died suddenly in 2016, leaving behind an unfinished manuscript, which her husband, actor Patton Oswalt, salvaged and pushed toward publication.

DeAngelo, a former police officer, has been charged with eight counts of murder and additional charges are expected, authorities said.

While DNA evidence ultimately provided a key to unlock the case, Jones said, "I can't underscore enough the absolute human factor", citing the dogged work of detectives, district attorneys, the community and the victims.

Golden State Warriors: Could Curry possibly play in Game 1 vs. Pelicans?
Though Golden State has more firepower with four All-Stars on their team, New Orléans has talent on its roster as well. If Curry plays, the Warriors should shoot far better than their poor 33.6% mark from long range against the Spurs.

"It's never defined who I was or who I am today", she said.

Investigators arrested DeAngelo on Tuesday after matching crime-scene DNA with genetic material stored in an online database by a distant relative.

Huddle told The Associated Press it is "still just going insane in my mind".

Reamer says she spotted a man in a ski mask riding a bicycle down the street of her Danville, California, neighbourhood in the middle of the night.

They said "discarded DNA" had been used to match him to crimes attributed to the so-called Golden State Killer - suspected of 12 murders, 51 rapes and more than 120 burglaries.

Iniesta Announces Barcelona Departure, Won't Stay In Europe
He is regarded as the best player not to have won the Ballon d'Or, something for which organisers France Football apologised. Iniesta and Messi were rising talents on that team coached by Frank Rijkaard and featuring Ronaldinho and Samuel Eto'o.

Following an arrest this week in the Golden State Killer case, comedian Patton Oswalt is crediting his late wife, Michelle McNamara, with helping to solve the case.

Before assaulting her, he moved her son from her side, but she doesn't know where.

For her, learning that her mother's murder was part of a series of attacks was "comforting" in an odd sense, she said. "It became a No. 1 New York Times best-seller". In October, attacks that McNamara looked at began in Orange County and continued for two more years.

It was 1981 and the authorities struggled for any clues that could lead to a possible motive or suspect in the killing of her mother, Cheri Domingo, then 35, and her boyfriend Gregory Sanchez, 27.

It "is just the beginning of the prosecution of Mr. DeAngelo", said Ventura County District Attorney Greg Totten. About 85 percent of people secrete their blood type in saliva and body fluids, but the rape suspect was in the roughly 15 percent who didn't. Back then he was known as the "East Area Rapist". It was the latest in a string of stalled or dead cases given fresh impetus by journalists, including the probe into real estate tycoon and multiple murder suspect Robert Durst, and the dubious conviction of Adnan Syed made famous by the acclaimed "Serial" podcast.
