DNA’S ROLE IN CATCHING THE GOLDEN STATE KILLER

An especially brutal series of 4 murders in Orange County began in 1980 through 1986.  Several more eerily similar killings occurred in three other California counties.  

ADA Debora Lloyd had served with the OCDA for 28 years, handling sexual assault and homicide cases, before taking charge of the fledging DNA unit.

Seven years into her retirement, ADA Lloyd was called back to apply her DNA expertise to track down the man dubbed the Golden State Killer.

On Wednesday, March 10 @ 6:00 pm, ADA Lloyd will join us via ZOOM to share that story.

Joining us also that evening will be sitting Orange County District Attorney, Todd Spitzer. who will introduce ADA Lloyd and Judge Rogan who will present a brief State of NJC.

Our Zoom Room will be available 30 minutes early @ 5:30.

1.0 MCLE Credit will be available to NOCBA members in good standing.

Certificates will be sent via email following the meeting.

Nine years in the Homicide Unit followed, as did assignments as Assistant D.A. Head of Court for South Court and Assistant D.A. in charge of the then (D.N.A.

ADA Lloyd served as one of the trial prosecutors on the case until it’s completion in late August, 2020.
