In a not-so-surprising turn of events, it appears as though an ex-cop has been arrested for the brutal rapes and murders of numerous adults that happened in multiple counties across California in the 1980’s. The former cop, 72 years old, was arrested today in the decades-old “Golden State Killer’ case. The suspected serial killer, Joseph James DeAngelo, was caught off guard when he was confronted by arresting officers in Citrus Heights (a part of Sacramento county, California) on Tuesday afternoon.
For over 40 years DeAngelo’s name evaded law enforcement, that is until his identity materialized after analyzing discarded DNA. During his crime spree, DeAngelo is believed to have murdered 12 people, raped at least 45 adults and committed multiple home invasions in the 1970s and 1980s.
DeAngelo “The Demon” was a police officer for in Exeter in central California from 1973 to 1976. He was also a police officer in Auburn, California from 1976 to 1979. However, the bastard cop was finally fired after he allegedly stole a hammer and a can of dog repellent, the Associated Press is reporting, citing to an Auburn Journal article from the time period.
If the allegations are true, this creepy cop made his victims wait for over 40 years for justice. But now it’s time for this bastard to get his due – Tuesday a complaint was filed charging DeAngelo “The Demon” with two count of murder with special circumstances for the murder of an adult couple in Sacramento in 1978. Additionally, he is being charged with capital murders involving a couple killed in March of 1980 in Ventura County, California. The last crime connected to the Golden State Killer was the May 1986 rape and murder of an 18-year-old lady in Irvine, California around May 1986.<img src=”https://www.in-freedom-alliance.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/freedom-alliance-end-mark.png” style=”border: 0; display: inline; margin: 0 2px; box-shadow: none;” alt=”ifa end mark” width=”47″ height=”41″ size-full=”” wp-image-1258=”” />
