28 - SERIAL: Golden State Killer Survivor Kris Pedretti speaks out

NEW INTERVIEW: Golden State Killer survivor Kris Pedretti opens up about the crime, why she was unable to talk about it for years and what she plans to say in court during sentencing.

From 1973 to 1986 fired police officer Joseph James DeAngelo Jr. terrorized California. DeAngelo committed at least 13 murders, 50 rapes and 120 burglaries.

Most commonly referred to as the 'Golden State Killer', DeAngelo was also named the Visalia Ransacker, the East Area Rapist, the East Side Rapist, the Diamond Knot Killer, the Night Stalker and the Original Night Stalker.

Meanwhile DeAngelo hid in plane sight as a family man with a wife and three children. He worked as a police officer and mechanic.

Also similar as Dennis Rader the BTK Serial Killer, DeAngelo was arrested after detectives discovered a familial DNA match to DNA in evidence.

On April 24, 2018 Joseph James DeAngelo Jr. was arrested. He pled guilty to the known murders and rapes in July 2020. In August he will hear victim impact statements from some of the survivors.

In this episode, survivor Kris Pedretti talks about being raped in her home just days before Christmas in 1976.

Today, Pedretti runs a rape survivors group on Facebook to help other victims of violent crime:

Facebook Group: Sexual Assault Survivors, it's time to tell your story.
