Patton Oswalt Stunned: Credits Late Wife in Golden State Killer Case

Fans of the book Oswalt helped to complete lauded him and McNamara after reports about the arrest in the high-profile case broke. "Not to discredit the work that the police and the lab technicians did".

On Wednesday, officials from Northern and Southern California announced that they had arrested Joseph James DeAngelo, 72, and that he's being held on suspicion on at least four counts of murder. DeAngelo was arrested after police matched discarded DNA evidence from his Sacramento area home with genetic evidence from the crimes, Ventura County District Attorney Greg Totten said.

"There's exhilaration, and I don't feel it now, but I can sense that tomorrow or the next day there's going to be a huge drop in serotonin and happiness when I realize she really isn't here", Oswalt said.

The Catastrophe co-creator and star tweeted Thursday that he was on his way to a standup gig, one of a handful since the death of his 2-year-old son in January, and he offered his gratitude to Oswalt - who lost his wife suddenly in 2016 and has since made his return to the world of live comedy - for showing him the way.

"This is insane, looks like they've caught the East Area Rapist, and if that's true, they caught the Golden State Killer", Oswalt posted while on a flight from NY to Chicago. On Wednesday, April 25, authorities in Sacramento arrested 72-year-old Joseph James DeAngelo in relation to four murders in 1978 and 1980, and cops believe the former police officer may have been involved in a string of other unsolved killings, rapes and burglaries across the state from 1976 to 1986. "She always said, 'I don't care about credit, I want to know that he's in jail.' And now he's caught".

During a press conference about the case, police credited DNA evidence and the public's interest in the case for the arrest, but they stopped short of naming Michelle McNamara's book. "It looked as though he might have been searching his mind to execute a particular plan he may have had in mind ... but he was not given the opportunity". It ends with a letter from Ms. McNamara to the killer, in which she predicts his eventual capture: "This is how it ends for you".

By sheer coincidence, the trio gathered in IL on Tuesday night to celebrate the book, just hours before DeAngelo was taken into custody.

Oswalt read, "One day soon, you'll hear a vehicle pull up to your curb, an engine cut out". Like they did for Edward Wayne Edwards, 29 years after he killed Timothy Hack and Kelly Drew, in Sullivan, Wisconsin. Like they did for Kenneth Hicks 30 years after he killed Lori Billingsley in Aloha, Oregon.

"The doorbell rings", McNamara continued. You're long past leaping over a fence.

This is how it ends for you.

Oswalt, Haynes, and another researcher called Billy Jenkins, published I'll Be Gone In The Dark posthumously in February this year, two months before DeAngelo's arrest. "Open the door, show us your face and walk into the light".
