The arrest comes months after the publication of a true crime book on the case, I'll Be Gone in the Dark, by the late journalist and writer Michelle McNamara, who died in April 2016. "But every time they said Golden State Killer, they credited the work of Michelle McNamara and 'I'll Be Gone in the Dark'". Billy Jensen, who helped complete McNamara's book, said that Joseph James DeAngelo has been arrested overnight by Sacramento police.
"My mind is going in a million directions right now, but on top of all the exhaustion and surrealism", Oswalt told PeopleTV, per EW. "But as my research takes me across California the more I feel the moniker, with its jarring juxtaposition, is apt", she wrote in a 2014 post.
The man, who was known as the Golden State Killer, the Original Night Stalker and the Diamond Knot Killer, is believed to have killed at least 12 people, raped at least 50 victims and burglarised hundreds of homes.
Patton Oswalt praised his late-wife, Michelle McNamara, after the subject of her final true crime book was arrested.
Comedian Patton Oswalt proudly and tenderly spoke those words to his late wife in an Instagram video on Wednesday. And honestly, I'll Be Gone in the Dark isn't really about him-it's made great by her resilience when leads didn't pan out, her honesty about her obsession, her empathy for victims, and her ruthless pursuit of the truth.

McNamara "didn't care about getting any shine on herself", Oswalt wrote on Twitter, comparing her to Frances McDormand's unassuming Detective Marge Gunderson in the 1996 film "Fargo".
People are also sharing an excerpt from I'll Be Gone In The Dark that predicted just how the Golden State Killer would one day be captured - a prediction that appears to be nearly bang on the money.
Oswalt and McNamara's fans couldn't help but notice the parallels with DeAngelo's arrest and how her book ends, with a message directly to the Golden State Killer.
But he said he's committed to finishing the work his wife started, including getting some answers from the Golden State Killer that his late wife always wanted to know.
On Wednesday, officials said DeAngelo, a former police officer, is the Golden State Killer and said DNA evidence ties him to the crimes.
