A decades-long search for the “Golden State Killer” may have finally come to an end after police arrested the man they believe was responsible for killing 12 individuals and raping 45 women over the course of many years—and, it turns out he was a cop.

Joseph James DeAngelo, 72, was a police officer in Auburn, California, who was fired after he was caught stealing dog repellent and a hammer. He is now facing a multitude of charges if he is convicted of carrying out the crime spree that shocked the state.

The crime spree began three years before he was fired from being a police officer in 1979. The search was revived in 2016 when Sgt. Paul Belli, a detective with the Sacramento County Police Department, was assigned the decades-old mission to find the Golden State Killer, who was also accused of 150 break-ins.

“This is a time we want to take to acknowledge this serial offender who was probably one of the most prolific, certainly in California, possibly in the United States, but also to let the victims know that we’ll never give up,” Belli said in June 2016.

The Golden State Killer’s crimes usually followed a sick modus operandi where he would break into homes, tie up the husband and place dinner plates on his back and rape the wife, all the while promising to kill the couple if any plate fell and broke.

Often his victims were single women who lived in single-story homes. One victim told investigators he broke into her home days before she was raped and took many of her valuables. He then returned and raped her. Following the rapes, he would call the women to emotionally terrorize them by promising to come back and kill them. The following Youtube video is reportedly the killer promising to come back and kill his victim:
