A very unexpected, exciting and long awaited event happened just days before CrimeCon this year. The suspected Golden State Killer/East Area Rapist who was sought after for more than forty years believing he was responsible for killing a dozen people and committing at least 50 rapes in 10 counties in California between 1976 and 1986 was arrested. CrimeCon featured a few survivors that told their horrific life changing stories of the crime itself as well as their story of strength and survival. They expressed their gratitude, relief and cheered that his reign of terror finally came to an end. Paul Holes talked about his time on the case. The term #HotForHoles caught on like wildfire! The sessions drew a large crowd as many people were interested in how law enforcement was finally able to make an arrest so many years after the horrific crimes occurred.
If you enjoy watching true crime related television shows, you will love the event. If you obsess over listening to true crime podcasts the event is for you. CrimeCon is a weekend long intimate event for fans to listen to different speakers, participate in breakout sessions, and have a hands on look at the different aspects of true crime.
