Federal Bureau of Investigation arrests man they believe is the Golden State Killer

Also known as the "East Area Rapist" and "Original Nightstalker", the Golden State Killer carried out at least 12 murders, more than 50 rapes and 120 home burglaries in California between 1976 and 1986, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

DNA evidence from the Orange County homicides ultimately led authorities to also link the killer in those cases to the notorious East Area Rapist, who is believed to have sexually assaulted more than three dozen Northern California women in the late 1970s.
