Santa Barbara detectives seek public help to identify California serial killer

Posted: Updated:

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (AP) - Decades-old DNE evidence has detectives in Santa Barbara County, California, taking another look at the "Original Night Stalker' case.

They are trying to identify the serial killer suspected in at least eight killings and numerous rapes that took place from 1979 to 1986.

Traces of paint found in two of the rapes and one homicide scene has investigators looking into the possibility that the suspect may have worked at a construction site, possibly as a painter. Detectives now want to talk to anyone who worked on the strip mall project in Goleta around the time of the slayings in 1979.
