  1. Here's a clear mug shot. What's going on right on the top of his head? It looks like a bandage. And he's got a scrape over his left eye. Also, a stain (dried blood?) on his right shoulder...
  2. Oh. My God. The East Area Rapist is The White Shadow!!! Why, Coach, why?
  3. Here's one of the sketches along side a photo of Deangelo from that era. There's a definite similarity there. But as for Kilmer17 saying why didn't his fellow cops recognize him from the composite sketches... that's just too far fetched to think that someone would, out of the blue and with no other evidence, think "Hey, that's Joe! He must be the rapist!" Even the best of sketches look very generic until after the fact.
  4. Re: the Itlalian guy who spoke up at the town hall... people are poring over photos taken at the town hall to see if they can spot Deangelo in the crowd. Also, for all his meticulousness, one of the double murders him walking up to a couple walking their dog, chasing them into a back yard and shooting them. Oddly different from the rest of the homicides.
  5. Here's a link to Michelle McNamara's Los Angeles Magazine article that was the precursor to her book "I'll Be Gone in the Dark." http://www.lamag.com/longform/in-the-footsteps-of-a-killer/
  6. I don't know which crimes they have DNA for. But a newspaper clipping from October 31, 1979 says he had been fired fired from the Auburn Police Department after being accused of shoplifting a hammer and dog repellent from a drug store in July. At least 10 of the murders tied to the Golden State Killer date after that time. https://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article/east-area-rapist-golden-state-killer-timeline-12863609.php If this is the guy, he was a serial rapist and a burglar while a cop. After his firing as a police officer, he added murder to his list of crimes.
  7. Though this is good to keep in mind, given the magic bullet status of DNA evidence for juries, it is a huge stretch in this case, Peter. The fact is that most of these crimes took place after he was a cop, for one thing.
  8. Yeah I hope that comes out in the days ahead. I did read that they surreptitiously collected DNA from him in order to match the DNA from the crime scenes. They also said that, until just a short time ago, he wasn't on their radar at all. So something caused them to focus on him very recently, and it was a solid enough lead that they went to the trouble of getting DNA off of something he discarded.
  9. Of tangental interest is that a woman named Michelle McNamara spent years researching and writing a book on the case. Only she died tragically at a young 46 years old, before the book got published. So her husband spent months trying to get the book published. Her husband is comedian Patton Oswalt, who succeeded in getting a publisher. The book, called "I'll be Gone in the Dark: One Woman's Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer" regenerated interest in the decades old case. One reviewer called it the best true crime book of the last decade. Author Steven King gave it a rave review. https://www.amazon.com/Ill-Be-Gone-Dark-Obsessive/dp/0062319787

    Close enough.

    Mercury smells like burning tires. Venus smells like a sandalwood candle. Earth smells like home. Mars smells like Matt Damon's running shoes. Jupiter smells like Crayola crayons. Saturn smells like gasoline, Uranus smells like, we just learned, farts. Probably onion farts. Neptune smells like an uncleaned salt water fish tank. Pluto, poor Pluto, smells like rejection.
