Do you recognize this writing? It likely belongs to the East Area Rapist AKA Golden State Killer, AKA Original Night Stalker.
This man targeted the Rancho Cordova area of Sacramento County in 1976 and 1977. He broke into several homes and committed several rapes and robberies during this period.
Perhaps you recognize him from one of the sketches?
After his 1976 to 1977 Sacramento County attacks, he moved onto other areas in northern California including Concord, Modesto, San Ramon, and San Jose. He then ventured down to southern California where his attacks turned deadly. From 1979 to 1981, he struck in Goleta, Santa Barbara County and committed multiple homicides. During this time, he made stops in Dana Point and Ventura raping and killing.
From 1981 to 1986, he murdered at least two women in Orange County in the city of Irvine.
If you know of a man that lived in all of these areas during these time periods-the Rancho Cordova area of Sacramento County during the 1976 to 1977 time period, in the Goleta area of Santa Barbara County from 1979 to 1981, and then in Orange County possibly in Irvine from 1981 to 1986, please come forward to provide a tip to investigators or contact me so that I can pass your tip along to investigators.
At the time of the first attack in 1976, he was likely between 17 and 30 years old, which would likely put him between 27 and 40 in 1986. After his 1986 attack in Irvine, he seems to have vanished. While it is not confirmed, there is a distinct possibility that this man may have lived in Visalia, California between 1973 and 1975, and may have been responsible for dozens of home break-ins and burglaries there during that span.
This man was described as having a thin, athletic build and likely of average height between 5ft 8 and 6ft tall. He likely had blue or light colored eyes. He was athletic; running and jumping fences to escape one crime scene, and riding a bike at high speed to escape another scene.
This man talked through clenched teeth at times, and was thought by some victims to possibly have a stutter, which is sometimes accompanied by clenched teeth in an effort to halt the stutter. Additionally, multiple victims described this man as having a very small, or unusually small penis.
He may have worked in a field related to land development, real estate, contracting or construction.
His schedule allowed him to prowl and attack at all hours of the night into the early morning hours which may be a clue to his employment status or type of employment.
There are also recordings of his voice which you can listen to here(be warned they may be disturbing and contain curse words):

I’m requesting that you share this article via social media in an effort to get this information in front of the one person that may be able to make a difference, the right person that may recognize the writing shown here, one of the sketches, or the audio recordings. Perhaps, they will be suspicious of somebody that they know who lived in Sacramento County during the 1976 to 1977 period, and then later down in the Santa Barbara and Orange County areas.
If you know of a possible suspect, please share your tip or information. There’s no harm in passing somebody’s name in and you can always remain anonymous. At the very least, anybody’s name that you provide as a tip can be properly vetted and ruled out by law enforcement.
At the present time, the FBI is currently offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to the identification of this man.
Please provide any tips or information to the FBI by calling 1-800-225-5324 or, if you like, you may contact me with a tip or theory, and I will forward it to the proper authorities.
