Joseph James De’Angelo, 72, has been charged with 12 murders in four counties. These murders have been linked to the assailant known as the Golden State Killer AKA the East Area Rapist and the Original Night Stalker. The Golden State killer was a serial killer, serial rapist, and a serial burglar who comitted at least 12 murders, 50 rapes, and over 100  burglaries in California. Sometimes he would be refered to as the diamont knot killer because of the uncommon knot he would tie his victims with. In 2001, DNA evidence found the East Area Rapist and the Original Night Stalker were the same person which later led him to be known as the “EAR/ONS”.

Second Cold Case Cracked:

Recently, a murder that dates back to 1987 lead investigators to a suspect. On Friday May 18th, Snohomish County sheriffs office announced they had a suspect in for the murders of the Canadian couple, Jay Cook, 20, and Tanya Van Cuylenborg, 18. William Earl Talbott II, 55, of Seattle, Washington, was arrested on Thursday. Talbott was entered for a non guilty plea and has bail set at $2 Million. DNA profiles led them to second cousins whose genetic information was found on the genealogy site. The same way that Joseph James De’Angelo was found is now helping to crack cold cases and bring justice to those families that never got it years ago.
