And the man wrongly convicted – and slaves in prison for almost 40 years – only wants to close the case for the brutal murder of Rhonda Wicht in November 1978 and her young son Donald.

"It is in the realm of possibility that he might be a suspect in our case," said Joseph May, deputy head of Simi Valley, to KCAL. "We requested a DNA comparison to find out if the DNA that Mr DeAngelo obtained matches the DNA we have in our case."
