Ruin FOR A FAMILY THAT HAS LOST A SON. JEN MCGRAW WHERE THE LATEST. THANK YOU. THE DEVELOPMENTS ON THE EAST AREA RAPIST CASE. TWO WEEKS AFTER SACRAMENTO OFFICIALS ANNOUNCED THE ARREST THE SANTA BARBARA DISTRICT ATTORNEY’S OFFICE HAS FOUR CHARGES OF FIRST-DEGREE MURDER CHARGES AGAINST JOE DE ANGELO. FROM 1979 TO 1981. THE NEW CHARGES LISTED IN THIS COMPLAINT BRING THE NUMBER OF CHARGES AGAINST DE ANGELO TO 12. ACROSS FOUR COUNTIES. IN A NEWS CONFERENCE SANTA BARBARA DISTRICT ATTORNEY GENERAL JOYCE DUDLEY SAYS THE CASES WEIGH ON HER HEART AND THE MOMENT SHE HEARD FROM DISTRICT ATTORNEY ANN MARIE SHOE.

IT AT ON APRIL 24 th WHEN I HEARD DISTRICT ATTORNEY SCHUBERT ON THE END OF THE LINE I Embark TO GET MY HOPES UP AND THEN WHEN SHE GAVE ME THE WORDS THAT VICTIMS ACROSS OUR STATE HAVE BEEN WANTING TO HEAR I Weeping UP. OFFICIALS BELIEVE THAT DE ANGELO SHOT DR. EFER MAN AND MANNING IN 1979 AND THEY RETURNED TO THE COUNTY IN 1981 WHERE HE BEAT AND SHOT SHERRY DOE MINGO AND GREG SANCHEZ. THE ATTORNEY GENERAL SAYS THEY BELIEVED THAT THEY COULD PROVE EACH CASE BEYOND A REASONBLE DOUBT. VENTURA AND ORANGE COUNTY ALSO HAVE WARRANTS OUT FOR HIS ARREST FOR MURDER. I WILL BE MEETING WITH THE OTHER DISTRICC ATTORNEYS IN MY OFFICE TOMORROW TO DISCUSS THIS ISSUE. IT IS UNCLEAR WHEN DE ANGELO COULD FACE A JUDGE IN SANTA BARBARA.

AS TO THE SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES THE DA ALLEGES THE MURDERS WERE COMMITTED WITH RAPE AND BURGLARY AND BECAUSE OF THAT DE ANGELO COULD FACE THE DEATH PENALTY. HEARING THAT THE EAST AREA RAPIST IS CONNECTED TO MORE CRIMES IN THE SACRAMENTO AREA. INVESTIGATORS BELIEVE THAT HE IS ACCUSED OF BEING THE EAST AREA RAPIST IS THE SAME MAN.
