A decades-long search for the "Golden State Killer" who police say committed 12 murders, 45 rapes, and 120 home burglaries during a reign of terror back in the 1970s and 1980s may be finally over.

I'm a Patton Oswalt fan, so I've been following this story tangentially through his Twitter and interviews about his wife's book. She did it. She nailed the bastard. I wish she could be here to see it.

One of his victims was assaulted just three houses down from us when we were living in the East Bay.

Holy cow...I had hoped this a-hole would be caught, but after so many decades, I was wondering if this would be like Jack The Ripper, where we'll be debating things for decades after.

Still it's nice to be wrong. I hope this jerkwad rots.
