Below is a brief explanation of each of the names, mostly drawn from writings by Michelle McNamara who wrote the best-seller "I'll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman's Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer" prior to her unexpected death in 2016.

Filmmaker Liz Garbus, whose documentary on singer Nina Simone, "What Happened, Miss Simone?", won an Emmy and was nominated for an Oscar, will direct the series, HBO said.

Actor Patton Oswalt is helping to turn his late wife's final true crime book about the Golden State Killer into a TV docu-series following the arrest of her prime suspect.

The Golden State Killer, also known as the Original Night Stalker and the East Area Rapist, is believed responsible for at least 12 homicides, 45 rapes and 120 burglaries, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Authorities have released two photos and a sketch of 72-year-old Joseph James DeAngelo, the man believed to be the murderous "Original Night Stalker" or "Golden State Killer", from the 70's hoping to piece together a timeline of DeAngelo's time in Santa Barbara County.

I'll Be Gone in the Dark is McNamara's comprehensive exploration of the case, but also an insight into the investigator herself.

Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley told Noozhawk late last week that she has been in communication with both local and state-wide team members throughout the lengthy investigation. McNamara's fascination with the serial killer led her to create the website True Crime Diary. The introduction was written by Gillian Flynn, who will be producing the documentary.
