    This is great news. I'm so glad the public has a chance to make him accountable for his crimes.

    I saw this trending on Twitter yesterday.
    I lived in the Bay area back in 1981, then in LA from 1983 on.
    I can't believe I never heard of this case.
    I must have blocked it out of my mind, just like Richard Ramirez. My girlfriends are only allowed to talk about it now.

    I'm anxious to hear how they zeroed in on him. Ultimately comparing DNA he left at the scene long before they had DNA testing will nail him, but how did they figure it out hasn't been disclosed yet.

    There's a rumor the high reward amount from the FBI had something to do with getting him. I'm sure it will all come out.

    I read that they were able to determine it was him by looking at the dna on genealogy websites. One of his relatives must have submitted dna to one of those sites, and investigators determined that it was likely him based on his age and where he was living at the time those crimes were committed. Investigators set up surveillance on him and were able to obtain his dna from something he discarded.

    Glad he's FINALLY caught!
    I remember reading about this on CNN.. @ one point a $100,000.00 reward was offered for his capture.

    Me personally, I'm planning to take a self defense classes, I saw on TV a woman nearly got jumped/attacked on Wilshire Blvd recently
    There's just way too many rapes out there

    Apparently LE used one of those ancestry companies that test your DNA ( as the companies share the info with LE and other 3rd party companies) and got a hit on a distant relative who they could then trace back to Joseph James DeAngelo as he fits the age and location. Once they located Joseph James DeAngelo they tested his DNA from something he discarded and got an exact match.

    As many others have said on other forums he got to live his life and the way the Courts and justice system works he just got free food, housing, and medical care for the rest of his life.

    I personally think from what is known about his crimes that his public shame is some form of punishment that he has to understand on some level.

    Sad but I think all males should have DNA taken from birth so if they rape or kill LE will automatically know who it is.

    I hear you, better late then never, but at this point it's more shame on his wife and 3 adult daughters. They will suffer more then he will.
