McNamara built such positive relationships with law enforcement officers that several of them attended her funeral in 2016 and "talked about her in a handsome way", Skrine said. "She had been in the middle of her hunt for the killer and her book, 'I'll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman's Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer'".

She said friends and family who supported her through the ordeal in 1979 were en route to her current Bay Area residence to hug her and celebrate the arrest.

"I'll be Gone in the Dark" was published on February 27 and became a New York Times bestseller.

On Wednesday, police apprehended a man they suspect to be the Golden State Killer, a serial killer and rapist who terrorized California communities in the 1970s and 1980s.

Oswalt appeared on "Late Night with Seth Myers" early Thursday and said news of the arrest felt like "a beginning of this whole other chapter". Holes spent almost 25 years on this case, she said.

"Obviously, you didn't want the East Area Rapist on the team", Phillips said.

"It kept interest and tips coming in", he said.

Oswalt told the New York Times that the arrest gave him a odd mix of elation and impending sadness that his wife wasn't there to witness it.

But, Debbi had to wait until Wednesday morning's press conference to actually learn the suspected killer's identity.

The usually dry areas of North Africa and the Middle East have been hit by intermittent heavy rainfall in recent days. The hike the students were on was meant to be a " bonding trip " for them, according to officials.

"We will definitely touch on how they found him [and] as much as we can find out about his life", said Jensen. "We are also building a timeline of where and when he's been, to see if there were any other reported crimes that could be attached to him".

An Oregon police officer working at the request of California investigators persuaded a judge in March 2017 to order a 73-year-old man in a nursing home to provide a DNA sample.

Michelle McNamara was on a mission to capture the Golden State Killer - and after her sudden death in 2016, husband Patton Oswalt has been celebrating her achievements from beyond the grave. He also told Terry Gross of NPR's Fresh Air in a November 2017 interview that his wife's obsession with identifying the Golden State Killer took a toll on her health.

Joseph James DeAngelo, a suspect in a series of killings in California, was arrested Tuesday.

Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Grippi said that the DNA used to zero in on DeAngelo had been uploaded by a relative, according to NBC affiliate KCRA.

"We have the law to suggest that he is innocent until he's proven guilty and that's what I'm going to ask everyone to remember", DeAngelo's public defender Diane Howard said outside court.

First of all, before McNamara started writing about the case, on her blog, True Crime Diary, and in Los Angeles magazine in 2013, the killer was known as the East Area Rapist/Original Night Stalker. He said it was frustrating to spend those years tracking the killer, knowing the man he sought was probably living a normal life: "And every day that went by. he's getting away with it".

Joseph James DeAngelo, 72, was arrested this week for his role as the serial murderer. "I hadn't thought about it for so many years", she said. She said, "I can't believe we caught him".

She was 15 years old on July 27th, 1981.
