Serial Killer Apprehended Decades Later

The suspect believed to be the notorious Golden State Killer — who was wanted in a dozen murders and nearly 50 rapes from the late 1970s to the mid-1980s — has been arrested in California, officials said Wednesday.

Joseph James DeAngelo, 72, was arrested early Wednesday at his Citrus Heights home, located 16 miles northeast of Sacramento, after a DNA sample matched that of the Golden State Killer, officials said at a news conference.

County records show DeAngelo is being held at the Sacramento County Main Jail, where he’s being held on two counts of first-degree murder and is reportedly on suicide watch.

Officials said prosecutors will seek the death penalty against DeAngelo, a former police officer.
