Local Filmmaker Gearou's Mission: Story of Janelle Lisa Cruz: Last East Area Rapist Victim

Local Filmmaker Gearou's Mission:  Story of Janelle Lisa Cruz: Last East Area Rapist Victim

Todd Gearou, Sacramento based film producer, remembers well moving to Sacramento at age 15, with horror sweeping our communities as the East Area Rapist/Original Night Stalker continued his rampage of terror.  Having committed 50+ rapes and 10 murders attributed to the East Area Rapist, he, if still alive or not imprisoned, is nightmarishly still at large.  Says Gearou, “anyone who lived in the Sacramento area during the late 1970s will easily recall the overwhelming fear that California’s most prolific serial rapist and possibly future murderer had over this area.” 

Gearou, like many others, including law enforcement, often wondered what happened to this night phantom some 26 years after his last murder in Irvine, Ca (1986).

Second Annual STEM Expo Saturday at William Jessup University

Second Annual STEM Expo Saturday at William Jessup University

As you know, the rapid pace of technological growth coupled with the demands of a global economy that operates 24/7 raises the standard for schools to produce "life-long learners" who can keep up.

Studies show students as young as third grade have started thinking of their career path which is why it’s important to start early when getting kids to understand their options in science, technology, engineering and math, also known as STEM. Studies also show that STEM classes and career planning should be built into school curriculum as early as possible, and that hands-on activities and visits with professionals in different fields are necessary for students to learn how their work in the classroom can be relevant to a future career.

To support the STEM initiative, this Saturday, March 24, William Jessup University will host Placer County’s Second Annual STEM Expo, free and open to the public from 11 am to 4 pm.
