Patton Oswalt was quick to respond on Wednesday when authorities said his late wife's work chronicling the Golden State Killer did not help with the apprehension of a suspect.

Joseph James DeAngelo, 72, was arrested on a warrant from the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department and booked on two counts of murder. He is the suspected serial killer and rapist who terrorized Northern California for two decades in the 70s and 80s.

Writer Michelle McNamara was admittedly obsessed with catching the serial killer she first referred to as the Golden State Killer before her untimely death in April 2016, and she worked tirelessly Patton Oswalt , McNamara ’ s husband, certainly believed she had more than a little to do with it.

Oswalt says they sacrificed family time so Michelle could travel extensively, by herself, to retrace the steps of the killer . Patton Oswalt says what drove his wife was the pain the attacker had inflicted on his victims.

True-crime journalist Michelle McNamara, who died in 2016, was dedicated to solving the case and wrote I'll Be Gone in the Dark, a novel all about her search for the elusive criminal. "Michelle pored over police reports, interviewed victims, and embedded herself in the online communities that were as obsessed with the case as she was," the book's description reads.

Fans and supporters of McNamara shared their frustration about the answer with Oswalt on social media. The actor and comedian said his late wife's work certainly did help.

  Golden State Killer: A primer on an elusive predator Here is a primer on the Golden State Killer from the pages of the Los Angeles Times: Q: What do we know about the Golden State Killer?A: The killer is believed to be responsible for 12 slayings, 45 rapes and more than 120 residential burglaries between 1976 and 1986.The crimes began in Sacramento then moved south through Oakland, and Santa Barbara and Orange counties.By 1978, the man had attacked victims in Oakland, Danville and Walnut Creek. The following year, he killed two in Goleta. Authorities linked him to the slayings of Cheri Domingo, 35, and Gregory Sanchez, 27, using DNA in 2011.

Michelle McNamara was three-quarters of the way done with her book, "I’ll Be Gone in the Dark After McNamara ’ s death, Oswalt enlisted the help of her friends — Billy Jensen, an investigative On Wednesday, officials said DeAngelo, a former police officer, is the Golden State Killer and said DNA

"It did," Oswalt wrote on Twitter, "but #MichelleMcNamara didn’t care about getting any shine on herself. She cared about the #GoldenStateKiller being behind bars and the victims getting some relief. She was Marge Gunderson in Fargo, not Chilton in Silence of the Lambs."

In a 2013 Reddit Ask Me Anything interview, McNamara was asked what she would do if the killer ever contacted her for an interview or information for her book, but on the condition of anonymity. "I would turn him over to the police. Justice is more important than a good quote in this case," she responded.

Oswalt on Wednesday said he was not surprised his late wife was being denied some credit from authorities.

"Also, the cops will NEVER and HAVE NEVER credited a writer or journalist for helping them solve a case," he wrote. "But every time they said #GoldenStateKiller they credited the work of #MichelleMcNamara and #IllBeGoneInTheDark."

McNamara's book was completed after her death with the help of Oswalt. It published in February.

Oswalt's initial reaction to the news of an arrest: “I think you got him, Michelle.”
