Susan Bowlus, (see interview video on right) explains why we are trying to pull together unrepresented crimes. Shortly we will have a discussion group for everyone who wants to discover where he was and what he was doing.
The idea is if you believe you had an encounter with DeAngelo, please list it in the sheet. No matter what you think it is. PLEASE only share what makes you comfortable.
This is absolutely different from the effort announced below by the District Attorney’s office (below). Their notice is looking for stories for their podcast.
Questions? Feel free to drop me an email: jennifer at jcarole.com.

DA Schubert Invites the Community to Share Their Story of Living Through the East Area Rapist Crime Spree
Joseph DeAngelo–the man now convicted of these horrific crimes–is the East Area Rapist. He is the Golden State Killer. Beginning August 18, 2020 and ending August 21, 2020, DeAngelo will hear from his victims and their families. He will then be sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
In anticipation of this sentencing, Sacramento District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert wants to hear from those in the Sacramento community who lived through the terror of the East Area Rapist in the mid-1970’s. How old were you at the time and in what general area of the county did you live? How did his crimes impact you and your family? How did you feel the day you heard DeAngelo was arrested? How do you feel now that he has been convicted and will spend his life in prison?
