'Major Development' in Golden State Killer Case, Authorities Say

The AP reported that woman asked that she not be identified because she did not want the family's name publicly linked to the case.

Oswalt also pushed back on Twitter against law enforcement statements that McNamara's work played no role in helping in the arrest of the suspect in the decades-old case, adding that it even was his wife who coined the phrase "Golden State Killer", The Hollywood Reporter reported.

McNamara's book was completed after her death with the help of Oswalt.

The acclaimed comedian spent much of Wednesday tweeting about his late wife's legacy and retweeting praise for her book, as well as updates on the case.

The company whose genetic website was used by investigators who misidentified an OR man as a possible suspect in the so-called Golden State Killer case says it was never contacted by law enforcement.

"It was sort of a mixture of very extreme positive emotions and then very extreme in the other way-kind of a bitter sweet thing", said her nephew Connor Stratton.

Dallas Cowboys Jason Witten plans to retire
The 49ers have traded right tackle Trent Brown to the Patriots, a day after drafting Mike McGlinchey as his replacement. In 83 career games, Maxwell has 245 tackles (203 solo), 11 interceptions, 59 passes defensed and 11 forced fumbles.

"You did it, Michelle", Oswalt later told his 137,000 Instagram followers.

The New York Times story noted that police officials acknowledged that the release of the book "kept interest and tips coming in".

Oswalt told the New York Times that the arrest gave him a unusual mix of elation and impending sadness that his wife wasn't there to witness it.

After DeAngelo's first daughter Misha Louise DeAngelo was born in 1981, the killings, rapes, and robberies ceased for five years.

The records showed that they created a genetic profile based off of the DNA, created a family tree, used public records and ultimately cited a "rare genetic marker" to get a judge to order the 73-year-old to provide a DNA sample.

During a Wednesday press conference, it was confirmed that DeAngelo had been arrested in Citrus Heights, California, on the charges thanks to DNA evidence against him. The book was released in February, almost two year after McNamara had died - it was finished posthumously by an investigative journalist and a researcher hired by her husband, the comedian Patton Oswalt. Seventy-two-year-old Sacramento resident Joseph James DeAngelo was charged with six of the crimes McNamara had investigated and attributed to the Golden State Killer-an incredible ending to a 40-year investigation, and a heart-wrenching coda for McNamara's friends and fans.

On Tuesday, authorities arrested Joseph James DeAngelo, 72, a onetime cop. His decade-long crime spree spanned ten counties in California, so tracking him down was a Herculean effort for detectives.

Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Grippi said that the DNA used to zero in on DeAngelo had been uploaded by a relative, according to NBC affiliate KCRA.

"He told me, "We got him!" and "he's in custody", Debbi said in a phone interview this past Thursday evening.

"It's never defined who I was or who I am today", she said. "Justice is more important than a good quote in this case", she responded.

Oswalt, Haynes, and another researcher called Billy Jenkins, published I'll Be Gone In The Dark posthumously in February this year, two months before DeAngelo's arrest.

"Ueltzen - then Bonnie Jean Colwell - was engaged to DeAngelo in the early 1970s but she broke it off and both went on to marry other people", the report said.
