The Golden State Killer became infamous for having a twisted trait – taunting the authorities and even his victims before and after the attacks via phone.

Although there are over 10 phone calls attributed to Original Night Stalker’s name, only 3 of them have been caught on tape.

1977 “Never Gonna Catch Me” Call

On December 2, 1977, a man claiming to be the rapist called the Sacramento Police, saying: “You’re never gonna catch me, East Area Rapist, you dumb fuckers, I’m gonna fuck again tonight. Careful!” The call was recorded and later released to the public. The killer attacked his next victim the same night.

1978 “Is Ray There?” and “Gonna Kill You” Call

On January 2, 1978, the first known rape victim received a wrong-number call asking for “Ray”.

The soft-spoken caller didn’t raise an alarm until later that evening when the phone rang again. This time, the victim instantly identified the voice of her assailant. The caller said, “Gonna kill you … gonna kill you … gonna kill you … bitch … bitch … bitch … bitch … fuckin’ whore.”

  • I grew up in Carmichael. I was 12 in 1978. The phone rang late at night and I was home alone. The man asked for Gloria (my mom) I said she wasn’t home then he asked for Mary (my teenage sister) I said she’s not home. He said who’s this? I said Nena, thinking it was someone who knew us since he knew my mom and my sisters name. He said I want to kill you Nena! He said my address to me so he knew my location. He said a lot of very horrible graphic and terrifying things. I kept putting the phone down then would check every once in a while to see if he was still there and he was. In my 12 year old mind I thought as long as I kept him on the phone he couldn’t be at my house. He may have been on the phone for an hour I’m not sure it was just a very long time and the voice was terrifying. He kept saying he was going to kill me in a soft slow voice. Now that I’ve heard the tape I’m convinced it was the East Area Rapist. My mom had her name and my sisters name in the phone book with our address listed. It looked like two woman living alone.
