Some 50 women were raped during a reign of terror in Sacramento and the Bay Area in the late 1970s, with the suspect then progressing to murder. The predator was given various names in each region, including the Visalia Ransacker, East Area Rapist, Creek Bed Killer and Original Night Stalker, before becoming known as the Golden State Killer. With the help of genealogical databases, Joseph James DeAngelo Jr. was arrested at his home in the Sacramento suburbs on April 24, 2018, and prosecutors say they’ll seek the death penalty.
