2018-08-14 20:23
The alleged "Golden State Killer," Joseph DeAngelo, has been charged with a 13th murder. Officials announced on Aug. 13 that DeAngelo murdered Claude Snelling, a journalism professor. [[CHIEF JASON SALAZAR / VISALIA POLICE]] "We are confident through the information obtained from victims and witnesses, through thorough examination and specific modus operandi in these cases, through the development of physical evidence, and by linking a firearm stolen from the Ransacker burglary that was used in the Claude Snelling murder, that Joseph DeAngelo is the man responsible for these crimes. Snelling was shot in September 1975 while trying to stop the kidnapping of his 16-year-old daughter. He also committed dozens of rapes and home invasions during the 1970s and 1980s, officials said.
