The Golden State Killer was arrested this Tuesday, April 24, after DNA linked him to a series of rapes and murders from the 1970s and ‘80s. Now, the crazed suspected criminal’s shocked neighbors are coming clean about his bizarre anger issues and secret life.

“We used to just call him 'Freak,' neighbor Natalia Bedes-Correnti told The Sacramento Bee. “He used to have these temper tantrums, not at anybody, just showing his self-frustration... usually because he couldn't find his keys.”

“He liked the ‘F’ word a lot,” she added.

As previously reported, Joseph James DeAngelo, 72, is also known as the East Area Rapist, and has been accused of at least 12 murders and 50 rapes. He is a Vietnam War veteran and former police officer.

Residents of Citrus Heights, California, told reporters that the suspected serial killer seemed like a nice old man, but would sometimes go on wild rampages and rage outbursts for no apparent reason.


According to a report, one of DeAngelo’s neighbors claimed he threatened to “deliver a load of death” if the resident didn’t stop his dog from barking.

As readers know, Patton Oswalt’s now-deceased wife, Michelle McNamara, has been obsessively investigating the serial killer’s case for years, and was in the process of writing a book titled I’ll Be Gone in the Dark, when she tragically died in her sleep.
