'Golden State Killer' DNA search led to wrong man previous year

This shoelace was marked as evidence. It was found at the site of Brian and Katie Maggiore's murder

Joseph James DeAngelo, 72, was jailed without bail almost two years to the day after McNamara died unexpectedly in her sleep.

The serial killer became infamous for the sadistic nature of his crimes. I'll be Gone in the Dark traces the Golden State Killer, who is suspected of at least a dozen of murders and more than 45 rapes that took place across California between 1979 and 1986.

Joseph James DeAngelo, 72, was arrested on a warrant from the Ventura County Sheriff's Department and booked on two counts of murder.

DeAngelo is being held without bail in Sacramento. She attributes his arrest to innovative new DNA processes along with "good old fashioned" police work. The suspect, they said, was tied to many of those crimes through DNA. "It's just so nice to have closure and to know he's in jail".

"We knew we were looking for a needle in a haystack, but we also knew that needle was there", Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert said.

But to a coterie of web sleuths and current and retired detectives in the Bay Area and throughout California, McNamara was a dogged true-crime writer who devoted the final years of her life to tracking the elusive serial killer and serial rapist whom she had dubbed the "Golden State Killer". It has been theorized that he was also responsible for crimes attributed to " The Visalia Ransacker", who was thought to have committed petty crimes and even murder.

But he was stunned to find out the man arrested was DeAngelo, his former brother-in-law.

December 30, 1979. The Golden State Killer breaks into osteopathic surgeon Dr. Robert Offerman's condominium in Goleta, a city just south of Santa Barbara, and shoots him and his girlfriend, Debra Alexandria Manning. "Today it is our pleasure to call him defendant".

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.

Patton Oswalt appeared stunned in media reports about the Golden State Killer as he gave credit to his late wife Michelle McNamara in the arrest of the suspect in California on Wednesday, Entertainment Weekly reported.

In an afterward to McNamara's book, Oswalt described his wife of 10 years as a true "crime fighter".

"For years I have been talking to her spirit and just saying, 'We're gonna get him, mom".

Haynes, Jensen and Oswalt were all at the event in Chicago and speculated how long it would be before the killer got caught; HBO's cameras caught it all, to the paper.

Rob Lowe was one of many who tweeted a congratulations to Oswalt, adding that McNamara "possibly, also proved Heaven is real". "We will be having a rather large announcement tomorrow".

The Visalia suspect used sophisticated "pry tools" to gain entrance to locked homes, just as DeAngelo is alleged to have used in the other crimes, Salazar said.

"For anyone wondering, Exeter is 11 miles from Visalia". According to Yahoo Entertainment, Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones said Michelle McNamara's book had no bearing on the investigation that led to DeAngelo's arrest. He said, "But every time they said #GoldenStateKiller they credited the work of #MichelleMcNamara and #IllBeGoneInTheDark".
