What is The Golden State Killer: It’s Not Over about?
The Golden State Killer: It’s Not Over is about a serial killer and rapist known to the public as Golden State Killer who has committed about 50 rapes and ten murders. The total number of criminal offences that he has committed is more than 170. He was a killer who sent chills down the spine of the people of California in 1974. What is most riveting and noteworthy about the case is that it remains as one of the unsolved cases in the history of Californian government. There were plenty of rumours about the identity of the Golden State Killer which created chaos in California. Some even claimed to have seen the murderer, but no eyewitness or evidence was substantial enough to pin down the criminal.
On this show, Paul Holes, a forensic and cold case expert re-opens the case all over again and revisits the evidence and crime scenes and tries to get a new and detailed perspective of the crimes with the help of modern technology. He is joined by former judicial attorneys, citizen sleuths, victims, and friends of victims who help him find fresh evidence to trap the killer. All the evidence collected forty years ago are scrutinised again using modern techniques like DNA mapping, audio record analysis, and geographic profiling. The key witness or the source to nab the killer is Jane Carson- Sandler, a survivor of the fifth attack of the Golden State Killer. Debbi Domingo, daughter of the victim killed by the serial killer also extends her complete support to Paul and his team. The series is an intriguing and gripping narration of the series of events that happened in 1974 and the testimonials of the friends and families of the victims.
