People like the "if only" game. It's why they play the lottery. I try to avoid it because it's a slippery slope leading to playing the "if only" game with your own past decisions and that's a dark voyage.

So... was he the robbery suspect?

I hope that bastard doesn't croak in jail before his victims and those of us who grew up in fear of the EAR get the satisfaction of seeing his trial and sentencing.

So who played in the Super Bowl that year? Was it worth getting arrested for?

No, he was arrested for something he was suspected of, but was probably innocent of.

A civilian, on the other hand, would have been prosecuted to the fullest extent possible to make the DAs numbers look better.

Also, note he got fired for shoplifting and had no problem finding a new cop job even with that conviction.

mrmopar5287: So... was he the robbery suspect?


Yes and it was dismissed and he sued the gas station for $1M. It was settled and we don't know more,

DeAngelo's lawsuit alleged negligence and false imprisonment and sought punitive damages of $1 million for "willful, wanton, malicious and oppressive" conduct. The court file indicates the case was settled and dismissed in March 1998, but Wright said Friday he could not remember the details of the settlement.

I don't think he got another job with the police after his shoplifting arrest (for dog repellant and a crowbar, I think)
Now, the cop job he was fired from (the town I grew up in) was his second job for a police department. The first was down in Exeter, California. It's beleived he quit that job and moved on to Auburn PD after the investigation into the Visalia Ransacker was picking up steam-he was even Exeter's liaison to that investigation. It's beleived now that he was also the Visalia Ransacker and that was his testing period before he ramped things up and became the East Area Rapist.
Pretty sure he worked at the Savemart Warehouse in Roseville since the 80s. Just drove by that place thirty minutes ago, picking up wings.

The maps of the crimes are scary as hell. Imagine if you lived in this little area.

Got it. I assumed he switched jobs because of the shoplifting.

But if you believe Wikipedia, he started the Savemart job in 1990, so the 1980's are a mystery.

Yeah, he dropped off the radar for a while, when he went south and started killing. He better answer some damn questions. Knowing he was arrested so close to my home at the time (3 miles away, seconds from a canal, and minutes from a park and the interstate) I'm even more convinced he's the guy my mom ran off with a shotgun in '76, and possibly the stalker I had at 19. I wonder if he kept an eye on the pretty woman who ran him off and her 3 daughters as they grew up. I had been a waitress at two different Denny's, one in Citrus Heights, and one in Ranch Cordova, the one a victim worked at when he called her out of the blue years after the attack.

I get chills just thinking about that evil SOB. I sure wish my mom was alive to see him caught.

I absolutely agree and I buy into all the big ones for that specific purpose: "I'm still in the running, no matter how bad the odds are, wouldn't it be nice ...". When you're fantasizing about what you'd do with $250M that's one thing. When you start looking into the past (uncontrollable events), and speculate on a brighter future based on those past alterations, then you get into dark territory. This article is all about "if only" we had caught him then. Oh yeah, "if only" he hadn't been born?

This guy's capture spurred me to join 23andMe. If there is a serial criminal in my family tree, nab the mofo. It's not like Big Brother doesn't already have me somewhat catalogued anyway.

/lotsa 2nd and 3rd cousins I didn't know I had.

Looks like they've got him dead to rights, so he will answer for what he did.

That's one thing the private prison industry has done, reduced the free-roaming population of serial killers.  It's so much easier to receive lengthy incarceration for relatively minor infractions that budding serial killers find themselves on the inside of a prison before they can start adding notches to their belt.
