Suspects who had many characteristics of a stereo rapist was huge. Every second suspect seemed like a sure thing. one by one. They were eliminated. The Easter, right. This wasn't the only wall and criminal law on the Lusaka. According to detective Larry Crampton northern California was a melting pot for disturbing criminals by October. Nineteen. Seventy nine three months had passed without any sign of the stereo rapist Every area that had been set up to that point was on tender books. The ripest taken breaks before just when I thought he had disappeared. He always rabies. somewhere else, it was only a matter of where and when They know the three years and almost fifty attack since the stereo ripest started, not one More enforcement agency had a solid or clear and complete description of the ripest. He had. Time and time again.

When things didn't It is way the law. the attacking Danville danger of just that. Not only please try. Victims get away, the husband challenged him got the better of him hey, stereo ripest, didn't seem to know what to do It's been three months since that Danville attack many agencies, It just saw her life but crumble. It disease open the way.
It's from sergeant bevans and lieutenant route burned in his mind, the stereo rapist was heading south to southern California. Compton had the sinking feeling things were going to get worse. The words of Dr Emily never left him, he better catch him. He wants to kill and he will, six hours south of Sacramento enter two hours. Northwest of LOS Angeles is the city of the later. It's it's fifteen minutes West of the city of Santa Barbara and is home to the University of California, Santa Barbara Campus very few people from
California heard of the stereo ripest law enforcement. Since can see busy dealing with their own crime in their own jurisdictions and we're concerned with what crimes were being committed in northern California. The later had its fair share. Burglaries in this but fallen crumbs work common one October first, nineteen, seventy nine three months after the law, Stay stereo right, attack, Santa Barbara Police, ended the saying of a burglary and attempted right attack one for this episode.

He then walked off down the hall towards her husband, muttering to himself.
The woman got up naked and still beyond, with her head covered, she couldn't see, but she knew the direction of the front door. She got to the front door and opened it as she did her ankle bindings loosened enough for her to run. She ran as fast as she could and started screaming, but she still couldn't say, and she came to an abrupt stop when she slammed into the side of the house a gloved hand grabbed a face covering her mouth. I told you to be quiet. He dragged her back inside and shoved her to the floor. After hearing his wife's screams, the husband was sure she was being killed He flung himself off the bed, made it to the bedroom sliding door and got out outside the intruder, heard the door open. He ran outside and banged his flashlight into the darkness, trying to find him. The husband was hiding in the bushes.

In like January,.

You need to come home and I don't know something about the tone of her voice- just convinced me, Maybe there is something that's that's important, so so I agreed to go home and I I had a friend drop me off and of course you know, we pulled up into the neighborhood and noticed that that I was just of police everywhere and and- will stand in a round and and and looking at this house that was there's that yellow crimes, everywhere. I thought about this alive in a most people. Here are you watch tv? You watch movies, everybody take me to in the pictures. Everybody knows where that leads.
For me over the last thirty five years, data that image of yellow tape, means so much more to me than what you see on he be. It means that I never got back in the house. The. The police sat me down as soon as I arrived, they all just kind of swooped around me and and scooted me off to to my mom's friend's house and sat me down and and and they told me that. There were two bodies in our house and that they believe It was my mother and I thought well duh. one of them was, my mother, who else would it be? But kind of the further along they got into that? I kept saying you don't when when can I go? When can I go in the house I want to? I want to go in the house They have a real democratic than me and said. Are you can't go in
and I thought you know well, you know I just don't have permission. No, they said you can't go in it's too messy. You can't see it and, and that just hit me like a ton of bricks, and so the EU is a course. You know there's all always this unknown of you know what what did it look like? What's what were those? What were those last moments like those are the questions that haunt me I don't know if that perpetrator was but then my mum Craig's bedroom for ten minutes, or three hours? I don't know. wonder about what and feeling and saying and doing during that time, and you can imagine the house was untold tech. Why go later in a quiet corner
tack on the morning of July, twenty seventh nineteen ninety one, a real estate agent, found the bodies of Cheri Domingo and Gregory Sanchez Sanchez.

They both showed signs of being banned, but no ligatures were found. The killer had taken them with him. The headline in the Santa Barbara NEWS Link, Sherry and Gregory's Motors, with the murders of Robert Offerman and Deborah money. Eighteen months earlier, the headline read to fiancee.
Flying in Galena case, similar to one in seventy nine. What no one knew at the time was that it was actually the sixth attack of the original night stalker, his fourth double murder, nine motors in total spending. Eighteen months in southern California, an officer informed Debbie that dog footprints were found at the ST and one to know if they owned a dog. They didn't. A woman, came forward telling police that she and her daughter were near Sherry's house around eleven pm. They noticed a man standing on the pavement behind Cherry Taos. He was a
white male in his twenties or early thirties, approximately four foot, ten with neatly cut blonde hair. He had a german shepherd dog with him. No arrests were made and the case went cold police looked at the connections between the two Galena double Metis Bevin, still felt. There was a link to the east area rapist, especially when the following year, the stereotype is made himself known again on October twenty first nineteen. Ninety two, he called a survivor from a Sacramento attack that occurred forty years earlier in nineteen seventy seven caught. It's may again remember me on going to come over and fuck you again you're going to suck my cock again as the years passed. All of the attacks in southern California turned into cold cases.
Different jurisdictions investigating the different cases, the crimes weren't linked. No one knew there was an original night stalker. Yet, while the Tang nineteen ninety six came, there had been nine new crimes or links to the original night stalker or to the a stereo ripest all at been quiet. It had been four years nine months and seven days since the last attack the murders of Cheri Domingo and Gregory Sanchez. It had been ten years since the first attack of the EAST area rapist in Rancho court it appeared to be over some believed he was in prison. Some believed he was dead. Some believed he had moved. For those investigators lock reach a chubby Carol Daily, Jim Ben's Re Route, Larry Compton and a few others deeply affected by the unsolved and the thought of the east area rapist rarely left them
many of them were still constantly checking crime reports up and down the state for any sign of him. They knew this. Serial offenders rarely just stopped, they had better reason. No man of leg works, tips, arrests, undercover surveillance or private consultants had gotten them any closer to solving the case. The murders committed by the original, not stalker, showed the hallmarks of the crimes committed by the EAST area, ripest some more than others. There was a short canal nearby the Gallagher attacks in Ventura. The pale Paul on cargo was close.

She lost a lot of her hair from the stress and just a really rough time. The initial investigation- I remember them taking me into the law office room where they asked me a bunch of questions. You know who my sister was hanging out with your friends are, and you know, probably something to the fact that you know that I know anybody. who could have killed her, and my answer was no. I don't know who and names of our friends and said I mean it wasn't like an interrogation. They just asked me some questions: and let me go- and I I don't even remember- leaving to be honest- I just don't remember that just start
I remember being in the office with them asking me questions now. As far as my mom on my stepfather, I don't know what happened. They never told me and we never talked about it. They didn't, I often tell me I used to just almost like a closed subject for awhile because we are all trying to figure out how to live without you now.

He was given thirteen death sentences, but he ended up dying from complications of basil lymphoma while awaiting execution, the unknown suspect in the southern California motives we've covered in this episode game known as the original night stalker as he was the original stalker of the night having started his chrome spray in nineteen. Seventy nine. in nineteen. Eighty six, when DNA evidence started to be used in crime investigations, the statute of limitations changed the following article from the Sacramento Bay explains. Quite the statute of limitations on rape in California has changed with the introduction of DNA evidence there is a six year statute of limitations on non consensual, sexual battery or right. However, there's a slippery slope that, because
there's an additional one, new discovery rule, which means if the attacker is identified by Dana evidence than the attack it can be prosecuted within a year of discovery of his or her true identity. Even if its past the sixty statute of limitations, So another words Those who believed that the stereo ripest Dodd there would be proven wrong. Some Timing. Ninety ninety one, ninety ninety two, this of all other of attacks- seventeen comical received a call. You know who this is.

king about the exterior rape is virtually staging chrome, saint and you're hurting discussed the punishment map, the sixth grade grant and the general customer aside, also known as the homeward babe. It's he talks to us again. He actually started up as a forensic scientist as I was working in a lab, I had been promoted up to what we call the deputy or a Kremlin, so I became a police officer, went to the police academy, but also oh, back in the lab doing the old work doing. As the geisha at where he was right in nineteen. Ninety four: when DNA was first started to come into the lab and so I ended up stumbling across the drawer in our library that had these folders that were marked with the Red e a r on m. I was like well what are these? open a mob and they were the case files for counter crossed county of the attacks that have occurred,
I I didn't know anything about. You know this case at all May I just coincidentally, was on a plane ride with by boss, former by Shortly thereafter- and I asked him about it and he was I'll be regional task force back in the seventies, and so each launched into this story and ideas. Why did you not? Let me see what I can do to stop. This does your case yet. using this new dna technology, we're trying to get gone as I ended up, tracking down dna evidence from three of the cases encounter cost and they all matched each other, and that's what I call Larry Crompton and I asked them hey I got this dna. Did you have any primest aspects in at this time all we know worth rate cases
and they are all past statute of limitations, so sort of like warm we're not even though we just want to find who this guy is always my go. I just want identify who this guy was. He was one at horrors, but he's never going to be prosecuted for this and Will Barry. prompt and basically said you know we never had that that real strong suspect, but we thought we went down to Santa Barbara, possibly killed somebody down there, but when he had gone, at Santa Barbara back in the day they really kind of just said no we got nothing related to your series up north and shut the door on him, so I decided to call: Santa Barbara I called Santa Barbara, and I ran a sort of the same thing up you. We don't have anything like this, but there's this city, the Irvine. I it like some dna. Now, this nineteen ninety seven saw- I call for a vine- and I speak with the detective watcher as long retired now
these again. We got some dna in our lab is has done some work and I call that lab, but unfortunately, ninety ninety seven the Orange County crime lab was doing a different dna technology, bad I was so weak. directly compare and ninety seven we just had one marker was the same, but it was like having the same ABC out now Taipei or type be it really was a very strong, as I told Org county I'll, be back and hot one We get caught up with you guys because they a little more advanced. What took for years to get caught up, but now two thousand and one I had. Put it up and I assigned DNA Anne was to work back that the peace, dairy rapers stood extracts. and told him.
Walking into my office. There was a batch, it's all about their home, it was yeah. I read this was now known to be the same person as the original livestock. There was now official the exterior ripest into the original, no Estonia, where the same person. when the statute of limitations rainy out on many of the east area right this crimes. Evidence in reports were thrown away. Apart from some files, detectives locked him Bevin, skipped the only physical dna evidence they had on the EAST area rapist was in three Contra Costa County crimes. The rest are linked by Emma. Those three paces of dna were what match the day and I found that the crimes of the original, not stalker. Ok, Larry. Poor was the lead investigator?
on the original night, stalker cases down in Orange County? So I called him up. I literally just we agreed him. Everything I had on the east area, and so this is now too and and why I thought it was a matter of time. He has fifty cases in order California, he's gonna catch this guy he had fallen and I got a walk away from the case at that point and in our course, I'm starting to get more and more heavily involved in the actual investigations are called cases and It was in two thousand and nine roughly two thousand and nine, and I now promoted up again I was cheap, but the lad. But I was we trying to work the old cases that I'm looking at draw my office at all the Easter rapers. Stop that I had. I was like you know what that is. Still
I'm sorry and that's what I've been star. I decided I was gonna get past the gate that seriously Saw that I've been working on a twenty four sad and three sixty five cents. Actually, the Galena murders of Robert Offerman and money and Cheri Domingo and Gregory Sanchez weren't linked to the original night stalker. The Santa Barbara Sheriff's department took around fifty pieces of evidence out of storage relating to the double homicide, father, Cheri Domingo and Gregory Sanchez- I studied wedding, hair and semen stains. there were able to create a dna profile from a stain on a piece of bedding the day, I was previously to wait for testing, but now with advances in technology, it was able to be tested further. That result is what linked their murders to the original night. Stalker Debbi Domingo spoke to us about that,
I want to say that two thousand and seven or two thousand and eight Santa Barbara County again, ans. I had always tried it. You know just. I would call every once in a while and leave them contact information just in case they needed me. so was contact by by the sheriff's, but again by this time, had moved half way across the country and John and they called me, and there were. There were two detectives, I wanted them call me and he sat down he said I remember exactly how he put it, but basically he said the same thing that the other guys had. Seventy thousand. He said you know we are. We want to let you know that we are actively pursuing your mom's case ends. and you know just getting that kind of a phone call just it just brings forth. You know. There were so many years that I would think
ok, maybe I should pick up the phone and call Santa Barbara, but I didn't want to deal with the discouraged I love having somebody say: no, we don't have anything new, you know, so I I really just didn't call very much so well. This guy called me, and I want to say two thousand and seven or two thousand and eight, and he said Couple a really interesting things. He said he was working with a partner that the two with them, furthermore, retired from Santa Barbara County and Department had chops them to come back in full time work specifically on cold cases and the thing He said that just made me go just just. Boggled my mind. He said they gave us a list of cold cases, so we can work on and they said pick one when you want to start with. They said it immediately; instead, they they looked at each other and they both went Domingo and Sanchez immediately.
And he said he said they just. There was no question they felt like it was solvable and if they felt like they could do some good. yeah so here. In those words from a detective after twenty five years, there's no way explain just how much hope that gave me and so that guy and I began just this- this email exchange, we we exchanged emails for. I a year a year and a half, and he would show me Genes, and I would even send back the answers that I would ask him questions and he would send back answers and just back and forth in these, we're working really hard. interesting thing about the work that they did is that, Instead of just going to a file box and the initial reports they actually, to the physical evidence. and they pulled the bedclothes
the crime scene with Initially, you know nineteen. Eighty one the technology to be able to extract dna samples and and those kinds of things, so these guys went back to them. no material and It's new technology, this they said they found really degraded samples of dna. we were able to extract them. They came up with a match, something. There I'll, be in two thousand and nine the currency. Today, nine or to those who live in carrying over now. I've got a year's mixed up. Apologized, call me in two thousand and eleven and said they said they had. They had come that match. My mom's case was linked to the rest of the original that soccer crimes, which was then, the name that had been given to the sky. No dna was available in the double homicide of Robert Hoffman and many linked by Manning.
In two thousand and eleven while searching for further evidence. The contrast, the sheriffs Chrome LAB, discovered the homework pipe is found at the First Danville attack police release these to the public, hoping if someone would recognize them. Possibly the handwriting or the tone of the sixth grade rant would spark a memory. Laurie pull quote the right person is going to say it. Then again to get the right call that leads to the suspect it can be found in the show notes, as well as your upcoming magazine on this case. while the late two thousands detective Larry Cool, had investigated. Eight thousand suspects by his skin there was one suspect who was dead tat. He was so sure of he had the man's body achieved only to find there was no dna match. Larry pull quote, if he's in fact deceased. That does nothing to dissuade me for making a concerted effort
what then avoid? I think about this case. Every day and every night we'll have competent, sketches posted on my bulletin board. This day and age profile, Lamont wore their case born so my shelf at work and even next to my bed. I want to say this case closed careful. I do it or some other agency, but I won't rest until it's solved It's number one or more professional bucket list. Larry pool, wasn't the only one who was certain he had the right suspect only to be proven wrong. We show crews also spoke to us about this. There has been quite a few different ones. Appeal person, event chest peel eyes, though I have looked into, and I have helped other people with and turns out. Dna was not a match, so it is up and down emotion. Oh roller coaster, ride It's really hard because you really feel like somebody could be,
killer and then their dna comes back and it's not so stifling rollercoaster. A roller coaster ride five emotion, emotions holes also explains. Lily, absolutely you know, like I probably my first suspect I spent two years Well, I uh. He was somebody would literally disappear. He dropped off the face of the earth in two thousand and four he was, is on the original suspect list. From the nineteen seventies he the railroad worker, Nina and Crompton, even interacted with guy then, when I started digging into here, I was like wow. This guy really adds up and turns being in the right locations at the right time. It's suspicious behaviors and everything else we need to get this guy's dna from was couldn't find him. The two years to find the guy Of course, I just continue to dig the guy trying to
figure him out as whether or not he's the guy and he the pop up, Sacramento as a homeless guy using his identity. and we got his dna, he turned out to be he's very racist, so That's what I ended up stepping back, because I sure he was the offender that I, or reevaluated how I looked at the case and one the bangs, and this is that was enlarged and everybody has done this and they continue to do this to this day, especially the online investigators. Is it be there following a suspect, based investigation or identifying somebody how they It was that guy yeah it could be because he looks like a composite because he had a bad personality. He beat his wife or beat his girlfriend,
this afternoon or whatever, but then they make details out of a case here and the problem with this case. Is it some huge were fifty six case past the thing thousand pages you can pick and choose. with details and turn almost anybody into a suspect. You can make the case that and that's where I decided I had to follow in evidence based investigation that was, after doing some, research and where I went wrong and after came raw smile, it was a geographical but also is now in the University of Texas School system, sort of a researcher on seal offenders, etc. He has an article on criminal investigative failures and ask them what they meant. He really presses is be evidence based And so, when I looked at all the evidence in this case course, we the dna and we're doing everything we can with the dna outside of that,
What piece of evidence that I thought was unique enough to limit the population of potential was his hand draw a diagram that the offender had dropped back in December of nineteen. Seventy eight, and so I ended up focusing in on trying to figure out ultimately identify all those spoke to us about the stolen mementoes that is still missing hope is seen, and this would be something we want to put out. There is if you find something that has as he's stall drivers licences from his victim. He took borders. some of these women out of their photo albums. You know you find a box filled with jewelry items and and collectible
points and drivers licence for people. You have no idea who they are it now take it, bring it to the attention of law enforcement, just that in another cell is. If you know the jewelry, I think a lot of the jewelry that he took. He took for value purposes and he didn't necessarily keep some of that he kept. But I think there are a lot of it. Was he probably sold at some point, but the drivers with the victims, photographs of names and height and wait and everything else on their. The photographs He took out a photo albums, the apple we have kept those in June two thousand and sixteen the Sacramento can ensure the common issued the following statement the sacrament. I cannot shirk apartment and our allies agencies have continuously been investigating the stereo ripest, her regional nostoc, a series since is beginning in nineteen. Seventy six. We want to assure you. This investigation has not ceased and the
cases have not been closed in two thousand and eleven a working group was created consisting of all involved agencies from northern and southern California, in an effort to better communicate and work together in identifying the still unknown offender and bring him to justice. For so many victims, To that end, the anniversary date of the first nine assault is approaching.

Sometimes you die it's one of those cases you want to say solved before you break your last. Larry Compton enriched show we have dedicated their laws to solving the case. Both retorted detectives have written self publish books on their side of the investigation. They are not directly involved with the current working group, but they both keep up to date and are involved in their eyes. Why detected Carol Daily is also retired. She spoke to us about her return after almost forty years to the home of the first of all, but she worked with This avoids is Jane, Carson sandal for you lost. here from lighter in the episode.

I it just gave me the creeps. It looks like the house had stood still and frozen in time nothing had changed the whole neighborhood around you know. Homes were landscaped and I in
Nice neighborhood and everybody had updated and done everything nut It'll be attached on that house and we were standing outside, being up with a film crew. They who live to the house just to the that is where faith in the house came out and I wanted to know how I but that case he's I remember the fear in the community and he said, living in an apartment in the North area and my wife and I were both so frightened and we had seen this area on tv, and we said, oh, that would be a nice place to live well I've been known to them when they bought their house. It happened to be next door to where Jane Carson had been a victim, and this gentleman work probation at the time, and he said I remember he said driving down the street. I saw a guy walking had a ski mask on I

I got back to the spot. He would like disappeared into thin air. He said he was nowhere and it was it just for me people that lived in the community at that time. You know young people bring it up now. Of course you know they only know maybe stories or something other than that I've never heard of him, but you go back. The people that were in the community at the time and they all had remember the very rapists they might ever get it about. You know all of the other crimes that the murders and the things that happen that they never forgotten about the east area rapist in that community. I went to the department and read some of the cases again, just to refresh my mind on details and tanks and
I tell you: it gave me an eerie feeling that I probably did not have it the time I was investigating a and maybe because I am, sure why? But okay, I came home and I I check and double check all my doors and the windows at night were very, very safety, conscious, I'm so ah yeah there? Isn't anybody that lived at that time that hadn't felt you know the the same fear. Michelle Mcnamara was a journalist working for LOS Angeles magazine.
