So well known that I've no idea wtf you're on about. Would it kill you to include a bit of info outside of just a link. It's lazy.

No wonder they didn't catch him at the time, the 'suspect' posters are far too young looking... sure he's seventy two!

Getting to serial killer levels of fame is surely at a point where you gain admirers and fascination from the public. To kill so many and not get caught, it is pretty interesting I must say.

Anyone interested in this case should listen to the Casefile podcast episodes on the East Area Rapist. Absolutely compelling listening. Can’t believe they may have found him after all these years

Seems unlikely that he killed and raped so many people for a decade and then just completely stopped for the next 40 odd years

There was a recent book about it, a writer Michelle McNamara, seems to have drawn attention back to it, she did her own research.

She sadly died very young maybe 2 years ago? She was married to the comedian Patton Oswalt.

He is also confirmed to be the Visalia ransacker which has long been a theory and was working as a police officer while he was committing those offenses. His crimes seem to have escalated to rape and eventually murder once he was fired from the police.
