Kevin Tapia and his daughter Quinn watch as authorities search the home of the "Golden State Killer". He was also busted for the murders of Keith Harrington, who was beaten to death with his wife, Patrice Harrington, 27, in August 1980, law enforcement sources said.

Sketches of the suspected Golden State Killer from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Police blame the so-called Golden State Killer for 12 murders, 45 rapes and 120 burglaries.

Investigators say DNA ties the suspect to two murders from the Sacramento area.

On the back of the map, the word "punishment" is written. "Looks like they've caught the East Area Rapist, and if that's true they've caught the Golden State Killer".

The Golden State Killer - also known as the East Area Rapist, Original Night Stalker and the Diamond Knot Killer - also is suspected of burglarizing hundreds of residences.

When California authorities on Wednesday announced that Joseph James DeAngelo, 72, was in custody on two counts of murder, her fans were quick to link his arrest to the release of McNamara's book, which renewed interest in the case. DNA evidence collected over the years led authorities to tie the same person to numerous crimes.

Komos says he was going to continue investigating the East Area Rapist case this weekend. The crimes span 10 counties; charges are expected in more counties soon.

"The Sacramento County District Attorney's Office plans to make a 'major announcement" in the case of an elusive serial killer they say committed at least 12 homicides, 45 rapes and dozens of burglaries across California in the 1970s and 1980s.

The killer also was believed to have taken valuables from victims' homes and possibly accumulated a trove of coins and jewellery.

Pool and his team began by looking into the August 1980 slaying of the newlywed Dana Point couple. "He would then shine a flashlight into the face of his victims, tie up the female victim and, if a male victim was present, tied him up as well", according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. She said the "answer was always going to be in the DNA" and the connection came in the Sacramento slayings of Brian and Katie Maggiore. But by 1977, a year after Jane's attack, the list of victims had expanded to couples in their homes. In certain ways, Gunderson, like McNamara, who founded the True Crime Diary website, toggled between her pleasant home life and her need to visit the dark corners of human brutality in order to find a killer. He died in 2008.

As the crimes unfolded across the state, authorities called the attacker by different names.

Police believe the suspect in the Golden State Killer case raped 37 people and killed two in the Sacramento and Central Valley area between 1976 and 1978 before moving to the Bay Area and Southern California and continuing the attacks.

"Serial killers fantasize, and once they get that momentum rolling it is very hard or impossible to stop it", Pool said.

Oswalt, who has since remarried, said McNamara developed anxiety and sleep issues, which she treated with a mix of prescription drugs, including Xanax.

Federal Bureau of Investigation officials have said the suspect also appeared to have an interest or training in military or law enforcement techniques and that he was proficient with firearms.

But internal blockages, combined with the medications Adderall, Xanax and the pain medication Fentanyl took her life in April 2016 and her unfinished book was left in the hands of her husband, comedian Patton Oswalt, to complete.
