Michelle McNamara had made it her mission to find the person responsible for at least 12 murders and 50 rapes throughout California in the 1970s and 80s.

"The FBI even launched one menacing clip from a chilling 1977 name by which he terrified a girl with the phrases" gonna kill you, gonna kill you" in between deep sighs.

In Sacramento, California, police arrested 72-year-old former police officer Joseph James DeAngelo on Wednesday, saying they have DNA evidence he is the "Golden State Killer", a serial rapist and murderer who terrorized California in the 1970's and 80's. "I've heard stories of fathers sleeping with guns by their bedsides, shotguns very close, things of that nature".

A 1973 newspaper article in an Exeter, California newspaper described DeAngelo, at the time a police officer, as a Navy veteran, graduate of Folsom Senior High School and a "native of Bath, N.Y".

In 1976, DeAngelo returned to Placer County as an officer with the Auburn Police Department. He was reportedly forced out of Auburn after being charged with stealing a hammer and dog repellent from a drug store in Citrus Heights.

"That someone can commit such heinous crimes, and finding out someone in a position of trust could betray that is absolutely unbelievable", he said.

He was living in a suburb of Sacramento at the time of his arrest.

DeAngelo retired last year after 27 years working in a local supermarket warehouse.

"None of his actions in the workplace would have lead us to suspect any connection to crimes being attributed to him". He's being held without bail in Sacramento and will be arraigned Friday.

Joseph James DeAngelo seemed like the average neighbor. He kept to himself.

But they didn't have any reason to think he was a suspect in the attacks.

"It's frightful to think this man was living safely in his home for 20 years, just ..."

The Auburn Police Department is still a part of the ongoing investigation and is helping as much as it can.

"I won't have to research this case for hours every day and miss out on my children and my family", she said.

"Certainly I'm a victim, I was 13 years old, a man came into my home, tied up my mother and raped me, but I don't own that", she said.

"It's so different today and I just really, I just hope some of those other women that were raped by him can finally, maybe come forward", she added.

That first rape sparked the hunt for the so-called Golden State Killer but Carson-Sandler believes there could be more that may have not been reported to police. He is suspected in several other killings and dozens of rapes. They had three daughters together.

From 1976 to 1986, the crimes sowed fear across the state. He was dubbed the East Area Rapist after his start in Northern California, the Original Night Stalker after a series of Southern California slayings, and the Diamond Knot Killer for using an elaborate binding method on two of his victims.

Authorities said the book did not help them catch DeAngelo Jr, which led Oswalt to react on Twitter.

After the couple were killed, Harrington bankrolled an initiative passed by California voters in 2004 that mandates collection of DNA samples from people arrested in felony cases.

Actor Patton Oswalt also welcomed the news of the arrest on Twitter as his late wife Michelle McNamara wrote a book about the Golden State Killer entitled I'll Be Gone In The Dark, which went on to be a New York Times best seller after her death.
