13 O’Clock Episode 89 – Original Night Stalker / Golden State Killer Captured! Update Show

Fans of the show may remember that way back on Episode 8, we talked about the serial killer / rapist known as the Original Night Stalker (aka the Golden State Killer). Well, lo and behold, just as we were preparing a topic for this week’s show, THE ORIGINAL NIGHT STALKER GOT CAUGHT!!! Yes, the scumbag’s name is Joseph DeAngelo and he is currently in custody, so far charged with eight counts of murder in the horrific crime spree that terrorized California from 1976 through 1986. To celebrate the capture of this long-sought-after criminal, 13 O’Clock is doing an update and revisit of the case, since our first episode about the rapist and murderer caused so much interest. Listen in as we break down what we know about the man behind the monster, and discuss what we got right (and wrong) on our earlier show! It’s a super-topical, special EAR-ONS edition of 13 O’Clock, and it’s episode 89.

13 O’Clock Episode 8 – The Original Night Stalker

Most people have heard of Richard Ramirez, the infamous serial killer known as the Night Stalker. But what many people don’t know is that a decade before Ramirez commenced his reign of terror, a much more brutal and prolific serial killer and rapist stalked the upper-middle-class neighborhoods of California, from Sacramento to Irvine. This man, known alternately as the East Area Rapist, the Golden State Killer, the Diamond Knot Killer, or The Original Night Stalker, has never been apprehended, and may still be on the loose. On this episode, Tom and Jenny discuss his horrific crimes and speculate as to why he was never caught. 2016, in fact, marks the 40th anniversary of the Original Night Stalker’s first known crime, and the FBI have redoubled their efforts to track the guy down, offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to his capture and conviction.
