Documentary Films is in production on a doc series based on the best-selling true-crime book I'll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman's Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer by Michelle McNamara.

Attorneys for Joseph DeAngelo, 72, had asked the court to block the search, arguing the warrant for the evidence was issued before his arrest.

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office is working to put together a timeline involving two double murders and an attempted double murder believed to be connected to the Golden State Killer.

Sacramento County Superior Court Judge Michael Sweet ruled Thursday in favor of prosecutors.

A string of similar crimes in Southern California in the early 1980's was attributed to a killer dubbed the 'Night Stalker.' For some reason, serial killer Richard Ramirez was given the same name after his killing spree in the 1980's, and at that time the first killer became known as the 'Original Night Stalker'.




DeAngelo, appearing in court in an orange jumpsuit and handcuffed to a wheelchair, said nothing.

They obtained the warrant April 24, and prosecutors notified Howard of the DNA collection plans Monday, according to court filings. He has not yet entered a plea.

Prosecutors said they used DNA and a genealogical website to identify DeAngelo, decades after the case had gone cold.

Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley told Noozhawk late last week that she has been in communication with both local and state-wide team members throughout the lengthy investigation.

The Associated Press and several other news organizations are asking a judge to unseal the search and arrest warrants for a man who authorities say was one of California's most elusive serial killers.
