    The FBI has offered a $50,000 (£35,000) reward for information leading to the capture of the “East Area Rapist” a California serial killer who may be America’s most prolific violent offender. The unidentified man, whom officials believe would now be between 60 and 75 years old, is suspected of 12 murders and 45 rapes in a spree lasting at least a decade, from 1976 to 1986.

    The man, said to be white and around 5’10” tall with blonde or light brown hair, committed his first recorded rape in the Sacramento area in June 1976. He has been variously dubbed the “East Area Rapist,” the “Golden State Killer” and the “Original Night Stalker,” a reference to the “Night Stalker” serial killer who operated in Los Angeles from 1984 until his capture in 1985.

    On 2 February 1978, he chased down and murdered a US Air Force Sergeant and his wife as they walked their dog in Rancho Cordova, a Sacramento suburb. In its statement the FBI said he may be trained in military or law enforcement techniques and had some skill with firearms.

    Linked by DNA to a string of rapes and murders, the unknown man is also thought responsible for more than 120 burglaries and often stole valuables from his victims, who ranged from 13 to 41 years old. He was known to surprise sleeping couples in bed, tying up the man and raping the woman. He killed couples and women at home alone or with their children. “Burglaries in a neighbourhood tended to precede clusters of sexual assaults,” the FBI said.

    From 1976 to 1978, the killer terrorised Sacramento, said Special Agent Marcus Knutson, who was born and raised in the city and is now in charge of the FBI’s investigation. “We had people sleeping with shotguns, we had people purchasing dogs,” he said. “People were concerned, and they had a right to be. This guy was terrorising the community. He did horrible things.”

    Between 1979 and 1981, the attacks shifted to the San Francisco Bay Area and then down the California coast. He killed in Irvine, Orange County in 1981, after which the murders ceased for five years. His final known victim – an 18-year-old girl – was also killed in Irvine, in 1986.

    Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department detective Sergeant Paul Belli said: “Regardless of the amount of time that has passed, the sheriff’s department never gave up on the investigation. This person ruined a great number of lives, and he should be held accountable."

    Even worse is (well maybe not "worse") The Doodler. Google him. Insane stuff, gay serial killer who seemingly only got away because surviving victims didn't want to out themselves as gay. It doesn't make any sense that he would get away because of that, but that's all the info there is on the case.

    No one wants to admit to getting their bunghole stretched in a violent attack

    No way that guy is still alive. He didn't go dormant, he died. He was having too much fun to just hang it up.

    Always wonder why a serial killer would just stop all of a sudden

    Maybe he went to prison for theft or burglary but they didnt take his DNA because it was not a violent crime. Or maybe he died, we may never know

    I lurk at a sub-reddit called Unresolved Mysteries, and EAR/ONS is one of the big 5 that is discussed constantly there, along with JonBenet Ramsey, Maura Murray, Zodiac and Elisa Lam. This guy was creepy af and his telephone calls to a victim's family and LE are nightmare fuel.

    Patton Oswalt's wife, Michelle McNamara, was a driving force in keeping the investigation ongoing by interviewing witnesses, victims, LE, profilers and experts, and posting everything on her blog, as well as writing pieces for Los Angeles Magazine. If he is ever captured and /or discovered, Michelle Mcnamara's work on EAR/ONS will most definitely be a major contributing factor.

    ...so you must have heard about the stacking of dishes and the breaking and enterings before the rapes. the police also dubbed him "not very well endowed".
