The Golden State Killer Case: Theory vs Fact

"Unmasking A Killer" Supervising Producer Todd Lindsey, who's been researching and investigating the Golden State Killer case for over 10 years, returns to recap what they got right and what they got wrong when it came to theories regarding the crime spree and the identity of suspected perpetrator, Joseph James DeAngelo. How do the clues, composites, evidence, profiles, and timeline match initial beliefs and suspicions about the possible identity of the prolific and then unknown serial killer versus what law enforcement now know about the man they believe to be the Golden State Killer?

In Defense of The Golden State Killer with San Francisco Deputy Public Defender Kwixaun Maloof

On April 10, 2019, the team prosecuting the Golden State Killer case announced that they would seek the death penalty if suspect Joseph James DeAngelo is convicted of any of the capital crimes for which he's been charged. San Francisco Deputy Public Defender Kwixuan Maloof (who is NOT part of Mr. DeAngelo's defense) joins us to explain how the death penalty changes things for Mr. DeAngelo and his team of public defenders, and offer some insight on why a 100% DNA match to multiple crime scenes may not be the "slam dunk" case that many believe.

Sun-Gazette publisher Reggie Ellis and Editor-In-Chief Paul Myers return to share the investigative research they've done on both cases in relation to suspect Joseph DeAngelo. "Unmasking A Killer" Supervising Producer Todd Lindsey also joins to offer his take on the two murders and whether he believes either should be added to the Golden State Killer's list of alleged crimes.

Surviving A Killer - Kris Victim #10

On December 18, 1976 just before the start of Christmas vacation, 15-year old, highschool student Kris was home alone when a masked man broke into her family's house, sexually assaulted her, and eventually left. She was East Area Rapist victim number 10, and it took her some 42 years to finally tell her story. It's a story about surviving, overcoming, reclaiming her life, healing, and having the opportunity to replace the mask with the face of her accused attacker, Joseph James DeAngelo, who's been charged as the Golden State Killer. Kris shares what it's been like since the arrest, what if anything she has to say to the accused, and the silver lining that's come out of reliving the traumatic events of that single night in 1976.

Finding A Killer - The Paul Holes Story

Retired Contra Costa County Chief Investigator Paul Holes devoted over 20 years of his career to the search and identification of the Golden State Killer. It was Paul's idea to use investigative genealogy which led law enforcement to suspect Joseph James DeAngelo who has since been arrested and charged as the Golden State Killer. Discover how a general interest in science led Paul down the forensic DNA path, when he was first introduced to the East Area Rapist/Original Nightstalker cases, what he learned in a random conference call that inspired him to assemble a genealogy team, and why his pursuit of the Golden State Killer followed him throughout his career. Paul also speaks to some of the other high profile cases he's worked in his career.

Origins Of A Killer - The Visalia Ransacker Is The Golden State Killer

The Visalia Ransackings, a crime spree that started as a series of break-ins and burglaries in 1974, and escalated to murder in late 1975, was not originally believed by many in law enforcement to be an early incarnation of the Golden State Killer. Retired Contra Costa County Chief Investigator Paul Holes was initially a non-believer, but he publicly changed his mind on the theory, and explains why. Exeter Sun owner and publisher, Reggie Ellis, and Editor-In-Chief, Paul Meyers believed the connection from the beginning and share the research they uncovered to support it. And "Unmasking A Killer" Supervising Producer, Todd Lindsey, also believed GSK and the Ransacker to be one and the same, and weighs in on why there was never a doubt in his mind that the ransackings served as the training ground for alleged GSK suspect, Joseph DeAngelo.
