McNamara died in her sleep at 46 in April 2016.

The New York Times reported late yesterday that the "Golden State Killer," responsible for at least 50 rapes and 12 murders during the 1990s, was identified as 72-year-old Joseph James DeAngelo and arrested shortly thereafter.

"The resulting book is a chilling and vivid narrative of a serial killer's crimes, and a revealing account of Ms. McNamara's obsession with the case and the psychological toll it took on her", the Times said. "She would be beyond excited about this", he wrote online in a follow-up message.

"You did it, Michelle", Oswalt said in an Instagram video. To honor his late wife, the comedian finished her book after she passed with the help of other qualified contributors.

There aren't strong privacy laws to keep police from trolling ancestry site databases, said Steve Mercer, the chief attorney for the forensic division of the Maryland Office of the Public Defender.

Now the next stage begins; she plans to be in court to look Joseph James DeAngelo in the eyes and tell him, "You thought you were smart".

Investigators then started reviewing rape kits - which contained DNA samples from victims - in other jurisdictions, Schubert said.

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.

Patton Oswalt, whose wife spent years researching the unsolved case of the Golden State Killer, has a lot to say now that a suspect has been caught.

According to, the same DNA was linked to 12 murders and 45 sexual assaults, earning him the nickname the Golden State Killer.

Police said the suspect was arrested overnight at his Citrus Heights home on a warrant from Ventura County and charged with two counts of first-degree murder in connection to the 1980 killings of a couple in Ventura County.

Authorities were seeking weapons and other items that could link the suspect to the crimes, Sacramento County Sheriff's Lt. Paul Belli said.

Appearing in court in a wheelchair Friday, DeAngelo, 72, was arraigned on murder charges.

The genealogy website used to find the Golden State Killer suspect was Florida-based GEDmatch.

The news struck home for many of McNamara's fans and friends, who expressed their wishes that she could live to see an arrest in the case that she dedicated her life to.

But to a coterie of web sleuths and current and retired detectives in the Bay Area and throughout California, McNamara was a dogged true-crime writer who devoted the final years of her life to tracking the elusive serial killer and serial rapist whom she had dubbed the "Golden State Killer". "Think you got him, Michelle.!"

While the arrest of DeAngelo makes the world a safer place, it also draws attention to the fact that in the case of genetic databases, complete, informed consent, particularly by people who aren't using the service directly, is basically impossible.

In a 2013 Reddit Ask Me Anything interview, McNamara was asked what she would do if the killer ever contacted her for an interview or information for her book, but on the condition of anonymity.
