Hundreds gathered Wednesday night at a Citrus Heights, California bookstore to hear actor and comedian Patton Oswalt talk about the East Area Rapist.

His late wife, Michelle McNamara, wrote the true crime book “I'll be Gone in the Dark” about the serial killer, giving him the moniker the Golden State Killer.

McNamara died before finishing the book. However, Oswalt, with the help of crime writer Paul Haynes and investigative journalist Billy Jensen, they were able to finish the best-seller.

  Why did it take so long to arrest the Golden State Killer suspect? Interagency rivalries, old technology, errors and bad luck The killer was thought to have law enforcement or military experience. He was believed to stand around 6 feet tall, with an athletic build. He was presumed to live in the Central Valley and Sacramento area at different points in the 1970s. Joseph James DeAngelo Jr. was a former police officer who served in the Navy in Vietnam. He was 5-foot-11, with a sturdy frame. He worked in Exeter until 1976, before moving to Auburn, a town 30 miles northeast of Sacramento.

Actor Patton Oswalt fought to publish wife Michelle McNamara's book on the Golden State Killer. Colette Bonnett, from Carmichael, said she grew up hearing stories about the East Area Rapist from family members who lived in the Sacramento area during his reign of terror.

The three spoke to the crowd about what it took to get the book published.

“It’s been a very surreal last couple of months,” Oswalt said.

They discussed everything from the DNA that led investigators to the suspect in the East Area Rapist case to the suspect himself, 72-year-old Joseph DeAngelo.

“He was a violent schlub that is in that cage he should have been in 30 years ago,” Oswalt said.

Victims and family members of victims watched from the front row.

“I am simply blown away by how many people from the community have come out and are here to support,” said Jennifer Carole, whose parents Lyman and Charlene Smith were victims of the Golden State Killer.

Oroville resident Nikki Kean said she read the book and was drawn in by McNamara’s compelling writing. She said the book draws readers in, making them feel like they know the victims and the people involved.

“It wasn't just about him,” Kean said. “It was about the people who had to deal with it too.”

HBO was also at the book store filming a documentary. Filmmakers started shooting it last month, a day before the man suspected as the East Area Rapist was caught.
