A former California police officer has been identified as the “Golden State Killer,” who is believed to have committed 12 killings and nearly 50 rapes from 1976 to 1986, Fox News reports. A DNA match led authorities to arrest 72-year-old Joseph James DeAngelo, who was fired from the police department in Auburn, California, in 1979 after he was accused of shoplifting. Officials said prosecutors will seek the death penalty against DeAngelo.
