In January of 1978, a police phone trap captured the voice of EAR/ONS as he attempted to terrorize one of his rape victims over the phone.
"Gonna kill you."
A 1977 call made to a Sacramento 911 dispatch from someone claiming to be the East Area Rapist. The caller's voice is similar to the "Is Ray there" caller below.
"You dumb fuckers."
EAR/ONS often made hang-up and wrong number phone calls prior to his attacks. A police phone trap recorded one such wrong number call, possibly from the suspect.
"Is Ray there?"
