Golden State Killer Suspect Arrested

Andrew Donaldson

Born and raised in West Virginia, Andrew has since lived and traveled around the world several times over. Though frequently writing about politics out of a sense of duty and love of country, most of the time he would prefer discussions on history, culture, occasionally nerding on aviation, and his amateur foodie tendencies. He can usually be found misspelling/misusing words on Twitter @four4thefire and his writing website Yonder and Home.

    This is amazing. Among true crime aficionados this is akin to catching the Zodiac. This was the “original night stalker”, before Ramirez. What’s fascinating is the fact that he stopped, which is not in line with what we think we know about serial killers. Interested to hear the details as they develop-and need to get on to reading “I’ll Be Gone in the Dark” ASAP!Report

      Yeah – this story reminds me of the BTK Killer. You wouldn’t expect these guys to find another hobby. According to the old way of thinking, if serial killings stop, it’s got to be because the killer was jailed on some other charge.Report

    A policeman.
    Let that fact soak in.
    Watch the staged self-serving press conferences of law enforcement in which their indefatigable dedication to finding the suspect is promoted, praised, and propagandized.
    40+ Years does not represent any measure of success or Justice.
    It is abject failure. And until the police are scrutinized by outside citizen run inquiries no good explanation from this killer’s former colleagues will suffice.
    A policeman.Report

      Notice he quit the force after being caught shoplifting. He forwent a hearing, just pleaded guilty and resigned. The stolen items? A hammer and dog repellent spray.
      Raised no eyebrows.Report

    The look on his face during the mug shot is priceless. Its pure incomprehension that he finally got caught.Report
