His daughter said his family was not aware that authorities took a DNA sample from him while he was lying in bed at the rehabilitation center until she was contacted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in April 2017 and asked to help expand the family's genetic tree in the search for suspects.

The development was first reported by the Sacramento Bee.

"We have the law to suggest that he is innocent until he's proven guilty and that's what I'm going to ask everyone to remember", DeAngelo's public defender Diane Howard said outside court.

DeAngelo appeared in court handcuffed in a wheelchair and was wearing an orange jumpsuit. "I was an awkward teenager when she died, and I didn't understand her that well at the time, and she didn't understand me".

Investigators in California have been capable of crack the case of the Golden State Killer utilizing genealogical web sites that featured genetic info from a relative, in keeping with a report Thursday.

It felt, he said, like he just continued to not live with her. DeAngelo, who is suspected of murdering 12 people, raping over 40 women, and robbing 120 homes in the San Francisco area during the late '70s and early '80s, also apparently started a family during his crime spree.

Comedian Patton Oswalt has praised his late wife Michelle McNamara for her role in the apprehension of a former police officer suspected of a string of USA murders, rapes and burglaries.

For years, she and her girlfriends have been amateur sleuths, getting together to review clues, like the diamond knots he tied, his short hair and corduroy trousers.

Police have been in possession of the killer's DNA for decades, having collected it from his crime scenes, but it did not mach with an identity in any of their databases.

The source says the suspect was caught through "sophisticated" DNA analysis.

News that police had arrested a suspect in the decades-old "East Area Rapist" case gave Betsy Reamer a nightmare about the time in 1979 when she thinks she may have seen him. She said she is simultaneously relieved and tearful, saying "I couldn't be happier that it's over".

McNamara built such positive relationships with law enforcement officers that several of them attended her funeral in 2016 and "talked about her in a attractive way", Skrine said. However, the influence of McNamara's book was downplayed by the authorities, prompting a response from McNamara's husband, the comedian Patton Oswalt, who was nonetheless thankful that her work was finally paying off. Police said he was linked to a dozen killings and 50 rapes from 1976 to 1986.

All the while, her mother was tied up in another room.

As a former police officer, DeAngelo probably would have known about the new method, experts said.

Prosecutors say Joseph DeAngelo carried out his most violent crimes in the months after he was sacked for shoplifting in 1979. According to a to-do list left on McNamara's computer found after her death, this was a method she planned to use herself. DNA evidence initially led authorities to believe the Smiths were killed by the East Area Rapist.

The Visalia suspect used sophisticated "pry tools" to gain entrance to locked homes, just as DeAngelo is alleged to have used in the other crimes, Salazar said.
