SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Authorities are renewing their search for a serial killer they say committed at least 12 homicides, 45 rapes and dozens of burglaries across California in the 1970s and 1980s.

The FBI and Sacramento County officials plan a news conference Wednesday to announce what they say will be a significant reward in the 40-year-old cold case.

The FBI says the suspect terrorized citizens in multiple California counties.

He's been linked to more than 175 crimes in all between 1976 and 1986.

The FBI has a new website that will include sketches of the suspect created by witnesses. It also will have interviews and other information about the case.

Among those scheduled to attend is the special agent in charge of the FBI region that stretches from Bakersfield to the Oregon border.
