Patton Oswalt credits late wife Michelle McNamara for Golden State Killer arrest

27 April 2018

McNamara, who published the website True Crime Diary, was long fascinated by the unsolved case, dubbed the suspect the "Golden State Killer" and investigated it on her own.

Mr DeAngelo has initially been charged with eight counts of murder.

Patton Oswalt and Michelle McNamara make an appearance on November 5, 2011, in Los Angeles.

Two years ago, nearly to the day, crime writer Michelle McNamara was found dead in her Los Angeles home.

Oswalt, who has become something of an expert on the case himself, gave Meyers a brief primer on the Golden State Killer case: "He was responsible for 12 murders and (45) rapes over like a decade and had gone uncaught for 42 years". Don't think I could do this if you hadn't shown it could be done.

Oswalt carried on his late wife's work after her death, helping to finish the book, I'll Be Gone In the Dark, which debuted at the top spot of The New York Times' nonfiction bestsellers list last month. It kept interest and tips coming in.

Though he was too "neck deep in grief" and dealing with the realities of suddenly becoming a single father to be actively involved, Oswalt says he leaned on her publisher and other collaborators to get the book done. 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".

It wasn't immediately clear Wednesday whether DeAngelo was on McNamara's radar as a suspect or how much her research may have helped investigators. "There were insights and angles that she could keep bringing to this case". Patton posted a series of tweets in which he revealed that Michelle, who had made it her mission to help solve the case, would have never looked for credit and that she just wanted the killer behind bars.

Within hours, police in the United States announced the arrest of a 72-year-old former police officer in connection with the killings, and Oswalt praised his late wife for her persistence.

In addition to Oswalt, several celebrity friends, including actors Rob Lowe and Emmy Rossum, credited Michelle McNamara's book for reviving interest in the 40-year-old case. "I knew that I wouldn't be able to live and go on with life if this was left undone".

"Michelle put a great big spotlight on him", Oswalt said of the killer, adding on Twitter that McNamara did not care about getting accolades for her work.

"And now, you know, because he's been caught, now they can start linking him to all these other cases".

More than a year after McNamara's death, in October 2017, Oswalt told Vulture that he was coming to terms with what had happened. By the next day, authorities identified him as the Golden State Killer, citing DNA evidence, according to the New York Times.
