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 Debra Lloyd had served with the OCDA for 28 years, handling sexual assault and homicide cases, before taking charge of the fledgling DNA unit.
Seven years after retirement, ADA Lloyd was called back to apply her DNA expertise to track down the man dubbed the Golden State Killer.
