Eerie Surveillance Footage Suggests That The Golden State Killer May Have Been On The Prowl Days Before His Arrest

By Mark LoProto

On April 24, 2018, 72-year-old Navy veteran and former police officer Joseph James DeAngelo was charged with eight counts of first-degree murder connected to the Golden State Killer. DeAngelo’s spree dates back to the mid-1970s and spans across multiple California counties, including Sacramento, Santa Clara and San Joaquin. 

The arrest was made based on a partial match to DNA of a fourth cousin found on the open-source genealogy website GEDmatch.

Months after his arrest, the internet started to buzz with an eerie revelation that suggests that DeAngelo might have still been active more than 30 years later in Folsom, California, just 15-minutes away from where he lived. Footage captured on a private residence security camera at 3:30 a.m. on April 14 shows what appears to be a man prowling in a wig. 

The wig was secured by a headband and, as seen in the footage screenshots, the man was traveling with a bag.
