If you are a longtime California resident who has lived in Sacramento County, Santa Barbara County, or Orange County during the 1970’s or 1980’s, then this article is especially directed at you. We need your help in identifying a maniac. This article is a checklist of sorts produced to spread awareness and help identify California’s worst serial predator, a man that raped at least 50 women, and is responsible for at least 12 murders.
Tomorrow June 18th, 2017 marks the 41st anniversary since a serial rapist known as the ‘East Area Rapist’ started attacking women, and couples in Rancho Cordova in Sacramento County. In the coming months, he attacked in other areas of Sacramento County, primarily in the Eastern part of the county including Rancho Cordova, Sacramento, Citrus Heights, and Carmichael. By 1978, this serial rapist moved on to other counties in northern California and attacked steadily until July, 1979 piling up 50 vicious rapes.
