They found duplicate rape kits, which allowed for more DNA testing (some had already been done, but they needed more). They put the info into a public DNA database and found matches to 3rd cousins. Then, a forensic ancestral researcher worked backwards to find the common great-grandparents. Then, they worked forwards to find ancestors living in California. They had 9 suspects, but from DNA they knew eye and hair color, so they ran it through the California DMV and he is the only one of the 9 who popped.
They began surveillance and dug into his background. He had an ex named Bonnie (a name which he had shouted during one attack), a service record in the Navy (the women were tied using a diamond knot— something sailors would know) and a brief history in law enforcement. So, they followed him, swabbed his car door handle for dna and got the match.
The full story is quite fascinating. But also shows just how futile their efforts were earlier on before DNA profiling.
outstanding police work... Hidden in plain sight... Now check the rest of the police officers files, DNA, and history. Wait... The government who hire these scums know some of the violent tendency's that these rookie cops have.
There is no such thing as an ex cop or an off-duty cop they always carry the badge gun and attitude. With they caused trouble other cops come and nothing happens to them but the people involved get harassed and arrested.
Master No11. Highly evolved spiritually or in this case methodically. Not on any police watch radar. Highly Evolved Evil genius. Richard Ramirez also a Master No11. Evolved from an Evil dimension. Also quite adept at killing. However sloppy & unsophisticated. Very different to Di Angelo. However both Master No's
Ffs another one down jk nah serial killers are cool but shesh killing innocents is for the weak jigsaw has the right idea he gets those who repeat the bad not stealing but getting kids or ppl killed and doing another bad thing so thats why i like jigsaw if he was a real serial killer
Guaranteed police obstructed him from being arrested earlier even now they'll probably let him go and say DNA is not that trustworthy anymore two weeks later they'll say DNA is good again but can't retry him double jeapordy
Some of y'all in these comments bout as dumb as bricks y'all keep asking "we know that DNA proved it was him but how did he get on the radar"?OK ummm.....they have his DNA from the rapes (of course they don't know who's it is at the time) they run it through a genealogy site the site comes back with a hit of his 3rd cousin they narrow that gene tree down to possible suspects they follow JJD to get his discarded trash to test his DNA BOOM its a match u have ya sick fucko!!!!!!!
really ,the person responsible for catching this killer was his own relative on a genealogy site??? and law enforcement does not want to say that during this interview because it may have interfered with citizens rights to privacy???
How does that have anything to do with privacy? If someone opts in to share their DNA to literally anyone who makes an account on those sites, there's no expectation of privacy. They clearly input the DNA into the site as any other person can do and found a close relative, making them able to heavily narrow down their suspects.
Yes take that you sick individual. You'll never hurt people again, and hopefully you get tortured in jail/prison and violently killed for all the pain and suffering you have caused. I applaud everyone that has brought that devil down
In the 70s amd 80s, cops never ever wanted to believe a cop could be a serial rapist/killer so theyd never listen to anyo e saying it unless it was a cop saying it or a cops family member was a victim. Hope he rots
Actually, he was caught using DNA uploaded on a Family Tree website - WHICH WAS A SUGGESTION BY A YOUTUBE COMMENTER ON ANOTHER GSK DOCUMENTARY OVER 1 YEAR AGO FROM WHEN HE WAS CAPTURED! Nobody is giving the commenter credit!
Commenter: Charles Lamkin
Did the "authorities" obtain his DNA lawfully? We know they found a match by digging through private DNA databases like from websites that offer information about relatives based on DNA. People should be concerned about their privacy.
A white man. A white cop. A white terrorist. A white serial killer and rapist. Not surprised that the white supremacist law enforcement took decades to catch him. For they are every bit as evil, corrupt and murderous as he is. This is AmeriKKKa!
there are several podcasts that explain how exactly he was caught! Criminology podcast just did a whole season of it and had to add a few after he was caught! Michelle McNamara is the true hero here though. Her book got renewed interest and everyone on the same page.
Killers can be found quick if every American citizen was required to give dna in case they committed a crime..... but of course, illegals wouldn't follow the rules. And many citizens probably wouldn't do it either unless forced.
Bitch you found him or he found you bunch of damn!!!!!!!!!! DUMMIES!!!!!!!!!! on the force right up under your nose what a shame aint nothing you can do to him he has live the best years of his life.I doubt if you where looking for him,too busy. trying to catch walking while Black.
He made a few mistakes. One that is a huge red flag now in hindsight. Getting fired for shoplifting wasn’t inherently suspicious but the items he was caught stealing? A hammer and can of dog repellent? This is the same time as him crime spree. Even more suspicious was he didn’t appeal his firing or even fight it surely do to the items he was stealing. It would have only took one guy to say let’s check this guy out or put him under surveillance.
What a Releif?? How about all of the damage George W. Bush has done to this country which is undoubtably responsible for so many people "going off of the deep end" and causing SO MUCH chaos in our countries cities. Get Real.
He looks like the composite sketch! how could the cops not figure it out??? especially when he was fired around the time the incidents started! the cops are convinced the only bad guys are the citizens of a city, never one of their boys in blue. They couldn't figure out that his way of tying people up and the sophisticated knowledge he had to subdue more than one person at a time showed that maybe just maybe he might have some insider tricks that only cops who have seen criminals' work may have come across in practice or in theory??? I just don't get it. all those people didn't have to die or be raped and have countless hours of despair and agony for the families left behind if the cops just took off their goggles. As soon as I started watching the documentary my first gut reaction is this guy was a former cop, or a high ranking member of the army. I'm glad he's finally caught, it's just a shame this couldn't been back in the late 70s instead so those tragic souls could have lived out their lives fully.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
