''We were dealing with an intelligent offender who was doing everything he could during the course of his attacks to prevent himself from being caught,'' explains criminologist Paul Holes. ''DNA laws were changed in California just to try to solve this case.''

Description

The Golden State Killer. The East Area Rapist. The Original Night Stalker. The Visalia Ransacker.

The monster who preyed on Californians from 1975 to 1986 was known by many aliases. And while numerous police sketches tried to capture his often-masked visage, the Golden State Killer spent more than 40 years not only faceless, but nameless.

For his victims, for their families and for the investigators tasked with finding him, the senselessness and brutality of the Golden State Killer's acts were matched only by the powerlessness they felt at failing to uncover his identity. To be sure, the chances of obtaining closure – or any form of justice – after so many years were slim to none, at best.

Then, on April 24, 2018, authorities arrested 72-year-old Joseph James DeAngelo at his home in Citrus Heights, Calif., based on DNA evidence linked to the crimes. Amazingly, it seemed, evil finally had a name.

Delivering all-new details about the investigation and a stunning final act to the events of Michelle McNamara's haunting best seller, I'll Be Gone in the Dark, this is the true story of how the suspected Golden State Killer was captured, as told, first-hand, by those closest to the case:

Paul Holes — the forensic criminologist and retired Costa County detective who spent 20 years trying to crack the Golden State Killer case, and finally did.

Steven Kramer — the FBI lawyer who pioneered the use of a public DNA database to unmask a killer, creating controversy in the process.

Jim Clemente (Host) — a retired FBI profiler and former New York City prosecutor who has investigated some of the highest profile criminal cases in U.S. history, including The Unabomber.

Love this series

Super shocking and informative. Love all the information on not just the serial killer but what investigation was like back then and how poor it was.

Every word is incredible

Incredible story about a true hero Paul Holes and his out of the box idea to use DNA in a groundbreaking new way. Must read for anyone who is interested in justice. Thank you Paul for this great book and thank you for your service. Your a true hero.

To the victims and those who spoke during this book, your words encompassed the reason why this case had to be closed. Bless your lives moving forward.

Good documentary

Very interesting story and many different people are interviewed. The documentary does fall off at the end as there is very little information known about the actual person that completed these attacks.

Passionnant et enrichissant

Ce récit véridique se démarque énormément puisqu'il centraliser l'intérêt sur l'investigation, la criminologie et la victimologie plutôt que sur le "serial Killer" en question. Un incontournable pour les criminologues et Crime Scene Investigators afin de prendre conscience du développement des technologies, des méthodes d'investigations et de l'intérêt des cold cases.
