The Golden State Serial Killer, who is yet to be caught, could be pushing 75, but authorities continue to search for the notorious rapist and murderer.

Delving into investigations is a new docuseries, "The Golden State Killer: It's Not Over," which aired Monday about the killer, also known as the East Area Rapist and Original Night Stalker, Good House Keeping reported.

The serial killer terrorized California for almost a decade, raping more than 50 women and killing at least 10 people during that time.

He has never been caught and the case never went cold however, according to investigators on the Investigation Discovery show, law enforcement officials believe they are closer than ever to finally catching the killer.

There is currently a $50,000 reward on offer for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the notorious killer, who is thought to be a white male between the ages of 60 and 75 years old who FBI officials said, "may have had an interest in the military, or had some military training, leaving him familiar and proficient with firearms."

According to a statement by the FBI, the killer preyed on women between the ages of 13 and 41 who were either at home alone, with their children or in a couple.

He also committed a series of burglaries, police said.

Last year, law enforcement hoped to generate new leads on the case by hosting a press conference that marked the 40th anniversary of the first attack, the San Francisco Chronicle noted.

"Obviously, with the 40th anniversary, this is a time we want to take to acknowledge this serial offender who was probably one of the most prolific, certainly in California, possibly in the United States, but also to let the victims know that we'll never give up," said Sgt. Paul Belli, the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department detective assigned to the case.
