  Wife of Golden State Killer suspect offers prayers for victims, seeks privacy for family The estranged wife of the Golden State Killer suspect asked for privacy for her family and offered prayers for the victims of the series of rapes and killings he is accused of committing. “My thoughts and prayers are for the victims and their families,” Sharon Huddle wrote in a statement released Friday by the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department. “The press has relentlessly pursued interviews of me. I will not be giving any interviews for the foreseeable future. I ask the press to please respect my privacy and that of my children.

The Golden State Killer is a serial killer , rapist, and burglar who committed at least 13 murders, more than 50 rapes, and over 100 burglaries in California from 1974 to 1986.

The Sacramento County District Attorney says the arrest made in the Golden State Killer case was largely in thanks to "genealogy and very dogged detective work.". (April 27) AP.

After DeAngelo's arrest in late April, the Victims Compensation Board began to hear from victims across the state, according to a State Department of Finance spokesman.

So far, 25 victims in four counties have reached out to the board. In addition, the Board and the Office of Emergency Services have been coordinating with representatives from 10 counties where DeAngelo allegedly committed crimes.

The number of victims will likely grow as counties make contact with more people who were affected. For example, Sacramento County created a tip line about the Golden State Killer and East Area Rapist and are "reportedly receiving many calls from previously unknown victims who were victimized during the period in which the East Area Rapist/Golden State Killer was actively committing crimes," according to a Department of Finance spokesman.

"At this time, the Board estimates 50 direct survivors and about 12 family members," the spokesman said.

It's not clear how much each victim would receive. Compensation depends on the financial losses and harm claimed by victims.

The money in the State Restitution Fund comes from the various payments convicted criminals are forced to make.

Investigators say DNA database can be goldmine for old cases .
Some private investigators and genealogy experts want to use the same DNA-tracking system that identified the suspected Golden State Killer to solve decades-old murder and missing-person cases. Emboldened by that breakthrough, a number of private investigators are spearheading a call for amateur genealogists to help solve other cold cases by contributing their own genetic information to the same public database. They say a larger array of genetic information would widen the pool to find criminals who have eluded capture.
