Neighbors of suspected Golden State Killer speak of shock

Neighbors of the suspected Golden State Killer say he once threatened to 'deliver a load of death' after he became angry over a barking dog - as those who lived near him painted a picture of a retiree who was 'creepy and odd'. Former police officer Joseph James DeAngelo, 72, was arrested at his home in Citrus Heights, California on Tuesday night after DNA linked him to crimes attributed to the Golden State Killer from the 1970s and 80s. The Golden State Killer, also known as the East Area Rapist, is suspected of at least 12 murders and 50 rapes across parts of the state 40 years ago. Residents of the quiet, middle-class street where DeAngelo had been living for years said even though their neighbor was known for his temper tantrums, they were shocked to learn he was suspected of being a serial killer. They said DeAngelo - a Vietnam War veteran, former police officer and grandfather - would mostly keep to himself but would often launch into swearing fits while working in his neatly kept front yard.

McNamara died suddenly in her sleep in April 2016 before the book was finished, and so Oswalt, McNamara's friend and fellow journalist Billy Jensen and researcher Paul Haynes helped finished writing the book, which was released on February 27 and hit No 1 on the New York Times Best Sellers list in March. 'I knew that I wouldn't be able to live and go on with life if [the book] was left undone,' Oswalt told Meyers.

The hilarious moment a Chinese woman runs into the bonnet of a stationary car in a ridiculous attempt to con the driver out of money

The footage was caught on dashcam in Hong Kong and shows the driver of the van coming to a complete stop at an intersection before the woman charges into it. It is believed the woman was attempting a 'pengci scam', where pedestrians pretended to be hit by a negligent driver.

A young boy was held outside a window of a moving car for two minutes as he urinated on a road amid heavy traffic in China. Local police said such behaviour had posed danger to the public.

The latest trend to take over China's social media is 'The Seaweed Dance', where people are filmed dancing to the song 'Seaweed Dance' and imitating the humorous choreography in the MV.

2,300lbs black rhino at Chicago zoo is given a CT scan

Layla, a seven and a half-year-old eastern black rhino at Brookfield Zoo, in Chicago, underwent a CT scan last week in what is believed to be the first procedure of its kind on her species. Keepers had to anesthetize Layla, who weighs 2,300lbs, before placing her on a specially constructed platform, then using a front-loader to slide her into a bespoke scanner. The images revealed an abnormal growth attached to one of Layla's molars which was causing her breathing problems and must be removed.
