APNewsBreak: Serial killer search led to wrong man in 2017

Joseph James De Angelo Jr was arrested in California Tuesday night on two murder charges. The now-72-year-old is suspected of being the Golden State Killer

McNamara was in the process of writing the book and reportedly close to cracking the case when she died suddenly in April 2016.

McNamara spent almost 10 years investigating and writing about the killer, also known as the East Area Rapist and the Original Night Stalker, on her blog TrueCrimeDiary.com and for the manuscript to the book, "I'll Be Gone in the Dark".

The man's daughter said the family was not aware that authorities had taken a DNA sample from him until the Federal Bureau of Investigation contacted her in April 2017 to ask for her help expanding the family's genetic tree as they searched for a suspect.

The Golden State Killer is believed to have killed at least 12 people, raped 45 and burglarized more than 120 homes in California during a decade-long stretch that started in 1976.

Oswalt discussed the case Wednesday night during an appearance on NBC's "Late Night with Seth Meyers".

Sources within the Sacramento County District Lawyer's Workplace informed The Sacramento Bee Thursday that investigators used DNA from a criminal offense scene years in the past and in contrast it to different DNA samples from household historical past web sites which customers despatched their DNA to as a way to be taught extra about their ancestry. "And I really loved her", he said.

In fact, she believe she needed this persona as a black woman in the industry: "It had to do with the fear of being judged". But all throughout this discovery, she explained that she is continually "open to learning more about who I am".

"You did it, Michelle", Oswalt said in an Instagram video.

Oswalt also said he hoped to meet the killer, "not to gloat or gawk,"but to ask him the questions that McNamara had wanted to, as outlined at the end of her book".

"I suspect this is happening much more frequently and that we are just seeing the tip of the iceberg", said Steve Mercer, an attorney for RaquinMercer and the former chief attorney for Forensics Division of the Maryland Office of the Public Defender.

Oswalt told the crowd that he believed the killer would be caught soon, that his time was running out.

The suspect is Joseph James DeAngelo, 72, who is a former police officer.

During a press conference about the arrest on Wednesday, authorities were asked whether McNamara's work, which renewed interest in the case, helped at all in leading to DeAngelo's arrest. He also told Terry Gross of NPR's Fresh Air in a November 2017 interview that his wife's obsession with identifying the Golden State Killer took a toll on her health.

Big Money Not In Comcast Corp (NASDAQ:CMCSA), Sentiment at 0.93

That's when a DNA match was linked to 72-year-old Joseph James DeAngelo.

The East Area Rapist has devastated families throughout the state and in 1981 he claimed the lives of a Santa Barbara woman and her boyfriend. She wrote extensively about it in her book, I'll Be Gone in the Dark, and it was that very work that helped solve the mystery. They relied on a different website than they had in the OR search, and they did not seek a warrant for DeAngelo's DNA.

DeAngelo is charged with eight counts of murder and is scheduled to be arraigned Friday.

Oswalt, Haynes, and another researcher called Billy Jenkins, published I'll Be Gone In The Dark posthumously in February this year, two months before DeAngelo's arrest.

The news struck home for many of McNamara's fans and friends, who expressed their wishes that she could live to see an arrest in the case that she dedicated her life to.
