    “It seems we only know of his time on the Exeter and Auburn forces because of archived news articles.”

    If it hadn’t been for those articles I believe it would have been quite some time before it was disclosed that he had once been a cop.

    “Prosecutors have filed four additional murder charges against a former police officer who authorities suspect was the Golden State Killer.

    Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley announced the charges Thursday against Joseph James DeAngelo.

    The 72-year-old suspect was previously charged with eight other counts of murder in Sacramento, Ventura and Orange counties.

    He's suspected of committing at least a dozen murders and more than 50 rapes across California in the 1970s and '80s.

    At the press conference today, the first question was someone asking about the attempted murder in Santa Barbara that many thought was done by the ONS.

    Anyone know about that? The DA refused to answer the question.

    The arrest of a man believed to be the Golden State Killer could finally bring closure to families traumatized by three Santa Barbara County cases that took the lives of four Goleta residents.
    [...]
    The Original Night Stalker is linked to three crimes in Goleta: two double homicides committed in 1979 and 1981 and an attempted double homicide in 1979, according to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office.

    [...]
    Authorities believe the Original Night Stalker first struck the Goleta area in October 1979, when he attacked a couple asleep in their home. The victims escaped, and the suspect fled on a stolen bicycle.

    On Dec. 30, 1979, Dr. Robert Offerman, 44, and his girlfriend, Alexandria Manning, 35, were found shot to death in his condo on Avenida Pequena in Goleta. Both had been tied up prior to being killed.[/FONT]
    Three months before the Offerman/Manning murders, a couple on nearby Queen Ann Lane were accosted, tied up and terrorized by a man, presumably the same suspect, but they managed to escape and flee the home and were not killed.
    In a signature move, the couple were bound with pre-cut lengths of cord the intruder brought to the house.
    With the similarities among the attacks and the proximity of the crime scenes — all of which were close to the San Jose Creek riparian corridor — there was speculation at the time that the murders and assaults could be related.
    But no clear linkage was found, and authorities at the time discounted the possibility.
    Without the benefit of DNA evidence, which was several years away from being commonly used in crime investigations, detectives did not have a lot to go on.
    There had been a witness in the Queen Ann attack — a federal agent who lived across the street heard the woman’s screams and gave chase to the suspect, who fled on a bicycle and on foot and eluded capture as sheriff’s deputies closed in.

    . . . fall of 1979. Abraham Himmel and Jennifer Horinek, both 33-year-old computer programmers, survived an attack in their Goleta home.

    http://articles.latimes.com/2000/oct/03/news/mn-30326

    DNA Tests Link Slayings in 3 Counties

    Crimes: Authorities believe serial killer may have committed 10 murders in Orange, Santa Barbara and Ventura counties between 1979 and 1986.

    October 03, 2000

    [...]
    The killer has left some broad clues. He is believed to be white. Sometimes he brought a German shepherd with him. Officials guess he was living in the Goleta area of Santa Barbara County when he surfaced.
    Authorities say the series of crimes began in the fall of 1979. Abraham Himmel and Jennifer Horinek, both 33-year-old computer programmers, survived an attack in their Goleta home.
    Himmel and Horinek were awakened at 2 a.m. when a young man shined a flashlight in their faces and commanded, "Wake up! Wake up!" The man seemed to talk through clenched teeth, telling them not to move or he would kill them, the couple said. "I gotta have money. I'll kill you. . . . Don't move or turn your head."
    Before the assailant could carry out his threat, Horinek managed to flee into a side yard, allowing Himmel to escape.
    It was described by investigators as "a practice murder" and was the first of three attacks over 18 months in the same neighborhood. Six people were assaulted in their bedrooms and four were killed.

    I'm not opposed to JJD having an accomplice in a few of the cases. Someone close to him who also has robbery on his rap sheet.

    As per my notes, I believe that is the unsuccessful attack of a Santa Barbara couple that occurred on Oct. 1, 1979. That attack (No. 51) was GSK's first known attack in Southern California, and the last time GSK's intended victims would escape unharmed. A knife was left behind at the scene.

    His previously attack to that was on July 6th, 1979 in Danville, California. That unsuccessful attack (No. 50) was GSK's last known attack in Northern California. That couple also escaped unharmed.

    * There was one more unsuccessful incident attributed to GSK in Santa Barbara. On Dec. 29th, 1979, GSK breaks into an empty home. The homeowners return home close to midnight to find their dog beaten. GSK is already gone.

    Hope this helps.

    Don't forget the silverware... He took that, too. Another heavy item to carry.

    ETA. Dang! Didn't realize I was two days behind!

    BBM. I am pretty sure that I would be reported as being divorced too, but I am not. My husband and I separated 27 years ago and have never divorced.

    Trying to look like a man just walking a dog rather than a man walking around looking for victims.

    That sounds so risky compared to his normal MO. They must have really needed plates and silver at his house. :/

    Did he have an impoverished childhood, that his friend's parents had those things and his didn't?

    I dunno. It’s all so bizarre. I mean let’s say he stole all the silverware and china. That’s hard t hide if he didn’t toss them on his way home.

    Another absolutely fascinating episode of the 12-26-75 podcast is now available:

    https://soundcloud.com/12-26-75/ep-16-ps-where-are-my-pants

    They state that they have almost completed Episode 17, but this is an almost one hour post-script to Episode 16.

    Yet again it contain dozens of new crimes that may well have been committed by JJD while living in Exeter.

    Short summary:

    1.) JJD may have been an "Exeter Ransacker" at the same time he was the Visalia Ransacker. Similar items (including a LOT of firearms) were being stolen, the same homes being attacked repeatedly, ransacking, stealing rare coins, raiding piggy banks etc...

    2.) Dozens of serious arson attacks and dozens of nuisance crimes (damaging an entire car-park full of cars at the same time, smashing windows in homes and businesses to set off alarms etc...) apparently began as soon as JJD moved to Exeter and greatly reduced as soon as he left Exeter. Their current theory is JJD was committing many of these crimes to keep the single on-duty police officer in Exeter busy, and thus give JJD the freedom to peep, prowl, stalk etc...

    3.) They have found what sound like JJD crimes back as far as 1968...

    Available on iTunes... :)
