I'm sure you're shocked. The question is, who was he looking at when he did it! This morning there was a rushed hearing on DeAngelo's demeanor. Here's what happened.
While I've talked about this tangentially in other podcasts, I don't think I ever did the deep dive about what happened that day and the days, weeks and years after that. This shaped who I am today - no doubt. Damned Golden State Killer.
Based on my Medium article.
Not a real episode, just a shout out to anyone interested. A press release went out today - here's what it says!

There's a lot of scurrying around as we head into next week where we will be reading victim impact statements and then sitting through the sentencing of Joseph DeAngelo. Want to know what's going on behind the scenes? Here's the scoop!
Episode 49 | August 3, 2020 | Ever wonder if victims of big crimes make money? Wonder about who is making money? Welcome to the serial killer economy - or how one sadist is keeping lots of people employed. I'll take you inside our little economy and what I know about who's making bank (and who's not). Based on my article on Medium.
Episode 48 | July 31, 2020 | If you want to piss off a female victim, all you have to do is hint that someone is going to review their witness impact statement. Here's what it did to our Golden State Killer victims. Based on an article I wrote for Medium.com.
Episode 47 | July 30, 2020 | When considering the point of view of a victim impact statement, who do we truly represent? This caused me to consider a lot of angles - my dad's, my brothers, mine. This discussion is based on a piece I wrote for Medium.com.
So many things get lost over the years. Photos, trinkets, things that help us remember. But for the most part, I remember the prologue to my dad and Charlene's wedding. I sometimes wonder why there's so much intrigue about "The Smiths" and I supposed it's things like this that have led to the drama.
Here's that photo of us all dressed up!
NOTE: the speed is fast on this recording and I have no idea why. My apologies!
Turns out, this is a little more complicated than I thought. Also, being part of this ginormous case means things that should be straightforward, are not. We're like the Costco of crime; everything happens in bulk and inevitably, you have to buy a few of the gross flavors to get the good flavors you like (why do they do that? Don't we all agree on the gross flavors?). Here's where we are!
And here's the link to the actual documents.
My apologies up front, this is a very raw video. I thought long and hard about it, but after talking with my new therapist, I know they only thing that ever helps me is the truth. And while I share my honest feelings with you here, don't worry, I'll buck-up. I always do.
If you'd prefer to watch me cry on video, it's here. (I'm saying that like a smart ass, please read that like a smart ass is popping off.)
