Ex-cop James DeAngelo, 72, was arrested in the early morning hours Wednesday after police say they identified him with DNA evidence over the previous six days. Also known as the East Area Rapist and the Original Night Stalker, the killer is believed to have committed 12 murders, 45 sexual assaults and 120 residential burglaries between 1976 and 1986 from Sacramento to Orange County, California. His victims ranged in age from 12 to 41 and included women at home alone or with their children or husbands. He wore a ski mask and would pry open windows and doors of homes. Once inside, he would enter the bedroom and shine a flashlight into his victims’ eyes. He later sought out couples, forcing the women by knife or gunpoint to bind up the men with shoelaces he brought with him. He would then stack teacups or plates on the male victim's back and would threaten to kill everyone if he heard a clatter. He would steal items from the house and small amounts of cash, and would help himself to food or drinks from the fridge. Last October, police are releasing, exclusively to PEOPLE, details of the items such as a China set and a Lycoming College class ring that the killer stole from his victims.

Police later surmised that the Golden State Killer may have accidentally dropped it before he got into his car as he was fleeing the scene. Dubbed, "the homework evidence," the author rants about his "dreadful" memories of sixth grade, how he got in trouble at school, how his teacher planned and cancelled field trips and how his teacher made him write sentences over and over. “Mad is the word,” he says. “I never hated anyone as much as I did him." Another of the pages has a hand-drawn diagram of what looks like a subdivision with the word "punishment" misspelled on the back. If you recognize the handwriting contact 1-800-call-FBI or go to tips.FBI.gov. 08 of 09 The Design Sacramento County DA Contra Costa County DA investigator Paul Holes tells PEOPLE that the drawing of the subdivision in the "homework evidence" is by "someone in the development industry who is brainstorming how to lay out a subdivision. This isn’t some kid who is doing it. "This is a very sophisticated diagram that someone who has got a career along these lines has done. This is not your troll who is doing this. This is your white collar guy."

Sometimes he would bring the shoelaces and cords with him. Other times he found the items in his victim's homes. As his murder spree continued, he began removing the bindings and taking them with him. "He always left them bound so he could get to his car before they could get free," retired Contra Costa detective Larry Crompton tells PEOPLE. "In the murders he then started taking the bindings with him. He was becoming more sophisticated with regard to what he was doing."
