The killer has gone by at least four nicknames over the decades: the East Area Rapist, the Original Night Stalker, the Diamond Knot Killer and the Golden State Killer.

The FBI has created a new website featuring maps, sketches and interviews related to the case. The agency is also launching a social media campaign in addition to releasing a mini-documentary and podcast, both of which are available via its Sacramento website here.
