Inside PEOPLE's New True Crime Stories Special Edition




By analyzing the family trees of each positive hit and using old-fashioned detective work, Holes and his team narrowed the pool of possible suspects by gender, age, region and profession until they arrived at a name investigators had never previously heard: Joseph DeAngelo of Citrus Heights, Calif. They confirmed their hunch by directly matching the killer’s DNA with a tissue discarded by DeAngelo in a trash can. On April 25, 2018 DeAngelo, then 72, was arrested at the home he shared with one of his three grown children, and a grandchild. In March this year he offered a guilty plea in order to avoid the death penalty. Bringing him to justice, Sheriff Scott Jones told PEOPLE, was “like catching Jack the Ripper.”
