Golden State Killer/East Area Rapist Pleads Guilty

I did a search but nothing came up. Shocked this wasn’t here and even more shocked he pled guilty to 13 murders.

He's not hot. So DL doesn't care.

We had a 600+ reply post on him when he was arrested.

by Anonymousreply 206/30/2020

Me too OP. I wanted a trial to hear how he did evaded capture for so long and just to watch him. Of course pleading guilty saves money and the victims from having to testify.

He can take that visor off already.

Have there been covid cases in California prisons?

by Anonymousreply 507/05/2020

R5, yes. Three death row inmates just died of coronavirus at San Quentin recently.

by Anonymousreply 607/05/2020

I just finished an excellent book about that case called "Sudden Terror". The author's name is Larry Crompton and he does an incredible job of conveying the terror he put those people through.

His victims will be living with what he did for the rest of their lives.

And, I mean Jesus, he got away with it for years and years.

I think a big part of it is what you often hear - different police jurisdictions not willing/wanting to share information with one another.

"Three death row inmates just died of coronavirus at San Quentin recently. "

Well, that was convenient!

Thanks for the recommendation, R7.

I love when DLers recommend books they’ve read.

Heading to Amazon now.

link to that thread?

He's plead guilty but hasn't been sentenced yet. We already know he will get life without parole (that was the plea deal) but the victims and/or their families will get to make victim impact statements at the sentencing hearing, which is scheduled for later this month. It's expected to take a long time and he'll have to sit there and listen.

I just finished the HBO series and the ID series where they keep going on about the construction angle which I guess was completely off base now that we know who he was. I am 1/2 way through the HLN series. Does anyone know if there has been a more recent series or podcast with them knowing about DeAngelo?

For r10 only.

Don’t nobody else click on this.

He was ugly then and even worse now

R7, thanks for the recommendation.

---"I think a big part of it is what you often hear - different police jurisdictions not willing/wanting to share information with one another."

I am so confirmed in my suspicion that guarding (withholding) information and refusing to ask for help is why cops are the fucking dumbest and most dangerous.

by Anonymousreply 1508/08/2020

That’s not the norm today, r15.

They were referring to the 1970s before computers became ubiquitous.

Back then if you wanted to share information with another agency it would literally require a phone call.

In theory: I have a rapist in my area. I’m investigating it but don’t find the need to call every surrounding police agency to tell them and see if they have similar cases. To do that on every case would waste an incredible amount of time and resources at the time.

Nowadays one mass email would get the job done, but not back then. There are still hundreds of cases like that but hindsight is of course 20/20.

by Anonymousreply 1608/08/2020

There must be many rapists/murderers hiding in plain sight being very worried about DNA testing leading the cops to them.

by Anonymousreply 1708/08/2020

R16, yes I know that the specific consequence of withholding and not asking for help was siloed investigations that would have benefited from cooperation; I think there are new examples of the same proud stubborness that hinder investigations.

by Anonymousreply 1808/08/2020

R17 If they can find you through your relatives, it's only a matter of time before they all get caught. Ideally it would deter murderers, but as we can see right now it doesn't.

by Anonymousreply 1908/08/2020

We've been discussing it a lot, dear.

I agree, r18, and there are.

Specifically when it comes to local police and the Famous But Incompetent crew.
