California has seen some notorious serial killers over the years, including the Zodiac Killer, the Grim Sleeper, and the Hillside Strangler. But the Golden State Killer might be the most terrifying.
Beginning in late ‘70s, he raped roughly fifty women, and killed at least twelve people throughout the state. By 1986, the gruesome murders came to a halt, and the killer vanished.
Police finally arrested a suspect at his home in a Sacramento suburb last week.
Yet the way this case was solved brings up some interesting questions about privacy and how police investigate rape cases. KALW justice reporter Holly J. McDede talked to Crosscurrents host Hana Baba about the case.
