SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The Latest on the search for a serial killer in California (all times local):
Authorities are renewing 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.
The FBI and California officials announced a $50,000 reward Wednesday for his arrest and conviction.
He's been known by at least four nicknames over the decades.
He was dubbed the East Area Rapist after his start in Northern California, the Original Night Stalker after a series of Southern California slayings, the Diamond Knot Killer for using the elaborate knot to bind two of his victims, and most recently the Golden State Killer.
He's linked to more than 175 crimes in all between 1976 and 1986.
The FBI also has a new website with sketches created by four witnesses.
