The heart of the United States was ripped off for long a decade by a single miscreant named Joseph James DeAngelo who was also known as The Golden State Killer. While no one could get close to him, Paul Holes appeared as a hero when he arrested this atrocious criminal.
Who is Paul Holes? He is a retired Cold Case Investigator of Contra Costa County District Attorney. Though he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in biochemistry, he stepped in the career path as Law Enforcement and Media Consultant.
Paul Holes's birthday falls on 15 March and is currently 51 years old in age. He hails from a science education background. He has a degree in biochemistry from UC Davis and also acquires the knowledge about Forensic Toxicology which he garnered while working as a police officer.
He was at his young age of 20s and was a new entrant at the department when he became successful in arresting the East Area Rapist Joseph in 1989.
Investigator- 'The Golden State Killer' Case
It wasn’t easy to trace and arrest the criminal. Many would give up after several tries, but Paul stayed still and focused more on the mission.
The infamous Golden State Killer had at least 13 attacks across California in the 1970s and ‘80s. And among the suspects, a former police officer Joseph DeAngelo are one of few criminals.
Joseph was suspected after investigators compared the DNA markers available on the public genealogy Website GEDMatch. He placed himself at the crime lab, but when nothing seemed to work out, he later came with a smart idea of using the DQ Alpha, a DNA technology.
Thankfully, long after the investigation of years, with his and the team’s continuous try, they became successful in arresting Joseph, a criminal.
Married; Who Is Paul's Wife?
After the case of East Area Rapist, Paul is considered the hero of the nation. However, when it comes to ladies fans, they not only perceive him as a real-life hero but also interpret him as a hot guy.
But, the fact might be disheartening to those ladies as Paul is reportedly off-the-market. Yes! He is reported to be a married man and has a wife with two adult daughters. It is Paul himself who let the world knows that he is the father of two daughters. He often tweets about his fear of having two adult daughters in the world of crimes.
On the other side, he rarely talks about his wife. Apparently, he prefers to keep his personal affairs secretive.
Everyone, who is aware of the case The Golden State Killer, might have wondered at least once about Pual’s position in his career as an officer. However, it won’t be right to compare Paul’s work with the value of money since he not only fulfilled his duty but also provided justice to many desperate souls and their family.
However, for the people's concerns regarding his incomes and net worth, his few career expertise and accolades justify his real earning. He served as Cold case Investigator for Contra Costa County District Attorney from January 2015 to March 2018. Further, he was the Deputy Sheriff's Chief of Forensic Services for Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff.
