  • FBI video details when East Area Rapist terrorized Sacramento area

    Authorities announced a $50,000 reward Wednesday, June 15, 2016, as they renewed their search for an elusive serial killer they say committed at least 12 homicides, 45 rapes and dozens of burglaries across California in the 1970s and 1980s. Although four decades have passed since the East Area Rapist serial murderer terrorized the Sacramento area, the FBI and local law enforcement announced a national publicity campaign in hopes of bringing the suspect to justice. This is the FBI video about the cold case.
