Ok this is from 2009 but it mentioned EAR/ONS a bit, but I strongly doubt it! But still its worth posting. Here it is:

Cops in Ventura, CA don't know if they have a serial killer on their hands, but something strange is going on. On May 20, a mysterious, motorcycle-helmeted intruder entered the residence of Brock and Davina Husted and stabbed the couple to death. Fourteen days later, 9 miles from the Husted residence on Faria Rd, someone stabbed 61-year-old Wendy J. DiRodio to death inside the house she shared with her parents on Sailor Avenue in the Ventura Keys community. Sgt. Jack Richards of the Ventura police says no link has been found between the crimes, but sheriff's detectives are now on the case as well, "to see if there are any similarities with the Faria case." Police initially wondered if DiRodio had committed suicide, but they seemed to reject that possibility by Thursday.
These communities don't see much violent crime. They are all close to waterways. The Husted residence backed up to the ocean, and boats are docked in an inlet just across the street from where Wendy DiRodio was murdered. It is hard to not think something strange is afoot here, after all. True Crime Report commenters certainly seem to think so. A couple of comments even place the blame on a phantom from the past, the East Area Rapist/Original Night Stalker, or EAR-ONS. Portions of some comments left on the entry about the murders of Brock and Davina Husted:
jon smith said:
This sounds like the original night stalker, Sacramento's "east area rapist" This man is responsible for at least 50 unsolved rapes, 12 unsolved murders, and he's never been caught! His last murders were in SoCal years ago, these murders definitely match his m.o. It seems like he is trying to revive the fear he created years ago for his numerous rapes and murders.

Wouldn't the original night stalker be a geriatric case by now incapable of clibing up Mount Suribachi drive to get back to the highway area and return to his motorcycle?

The re-emergence of earons. . . Yes,that's one reason that LE is being circumspect in their statements. As to being geriatric,the earons has taken very good care of himself.When compared to what is already known(at least publicly)about earons' last 10 murders-in particular the M.O.-this is a sophisticated,more evolved M.O. Anyone familiar with the movie "Mr. Brooks"?He's back for one last time and relishing the moment,especially the public reaction which hasn't changed.See how they run. . . .

There's no guarantee that there is a multiple murderer at work here. Those of us who follow crime stories (I'm certainly guilty of this) are prone to see such patterns where they don't actually exist. As for EAR-ONS, his MO was quite complex. He sexually assaulted many of his female victims. EAR-ONS used elaborate knots to bind the people he victimized. He often killed couples, but not before piling household items on the male in the couple, so if the man moved while EAR-ONS was assaulting the woman, the killer would hear him.
The East Area Rapist/Original Night Stalker was an intensely scary killer with a distinct method of operation. To say the most recent murders in Ventura are linked to him in any way is a big leap for many more reasons than just the killer's possible age - though he was young enough, according to witnesses, to certainly still be dangerous today.
That's not a connection I'm ready to make, personally. But the murders of the Husteds and now Wendy DiRodio are unusual enough to keep an eye on for now. They are also enough to terrify an entire community and make the rest of us wonder. Commenter "aardvark" has a point - if these murders were committed as part of a pattern and based on a compulsion more than aggression towards individual victims, the killer may very well be "relishing the moment."
