About Golden State Killer: Main Suspect
Hosted by NBC News investigative journalist Stephanie Gosk, this two-hour special offers an intimate look into the life of Joe DeAngelo, the suspect in custody, through new and exclusive interviews from those who were closest to him and offering a gripping depiction of the prime suspect in a decades-long manhunt. To his family, friends and former colleagues, DeAngelo lived the life of the classic “average Joe” - a father, grandfather, veteran and even former police officer. DeAngelo now stands accused of being the man behind one of the most ruthlessly enduring crime sprees of all time and is believed to have raped more than 45 women and murdered at least 12 people. He is currently charged with 12 counts of first-degree murder and has so far not entered a plea. Joining Gosk is Bay Area detective Paul Holes, who helped search for the Golden State Killer for nearly a quarter of a century and played a key role in the arrest of Joe DeAngelo.
