Patton Oswalt Reacts To Police Arresting The Suspected Golden State Killer, Whose Decades-Old Case Was Being Investigated By His Late Wife Michelle McNamara

Authorities believe they have finally arrested the infamous Golden State Killer – and no one is happier than Patton Oswalt.

Why? Because the more than 40-year-old case was thoroughly investigated by the comedian's late wife Michelle McNamara, who also authored a true-crime book on the subject titled I'll Be Gone in the Dark.

Oswalt shared the news on Wednesday, hours after police arrested ex-cop Joseph James DeAngelo on capital murder and other counts. Authorities identified the suspect as the infamous murderer — AKA the "East Area Rapist" and "the Original Night Stalker" — believed to have committed 12 killings and 48 rapes across California from 1976 to 1986.

According to the Sacramento Bee, the 72-year-old had been living in the Sacramento area and was identified after a "renewed push" for the investigation by the sheriff's department and district attorney. The suspect was arrested after police matched discarded DNA evidence from his Sacramento area home with genetic evidence from the crimes.

Oswalt, who helped researcher Paul Haynes and co-writer Billy Jensen finish McNamara's book, took to social media to document "One of the more surreal days" of his life, noting that all his wife ever wanted was to see the Golden State Killer behind bars.
