In this episode, I’m talking with rape victim, Rosebud Ireland, the last rape victim of The East Side Rapist before he turned into The Golden State Killer (raping and then killing his victims). 

Rosebud Ireland was only 22 years old when she was awakened suddenly at 3 AM feeling suffocated by a leather glove and a pillow over her head. The gloved man raped her and disappeared. 

For the next 39 years, Rose tried her best to go on with life, but she suffered from  PTSD, and rape trauma, never knowing who her rapist was, or being able to hold him accountable.  

The day that Joseph DeAngelo, the Golden State Killer (HBO docuseries I'll Be Gone in the Dark) was captured, Rosebud knew it was him. The one that had raped her so many years ago. She then set out to find and seek justice. 

She was disbelieved, blamed, disrespected. The detective on her case asked, “what were you wearing at the time of the rape?” Rosebud Ireland describes her battle trying to get justice from the wealthy entitled, privileged, celebrity enclave of Santa Barbara County, CA to hold the killer accountable for raping her in 1979.
