The Golden State Killer was one of the most prolific serial killers operating in California over an extended period of time.  The book "I'll Be Gone in the Dark" addresses the crimes, the investigation and the tools used to link the cold cases.  We will be covering the Golden State Killer case and discussing how the case was finally solved using genetic genealogy and what this means as a future investigative tool.
