Rodney Alcala found guilty of five counts of murder
LA Weekly – the fine art of killing
I hadn’t heard of this guy before today, but apparently he’s some famous serial murderer from LA. What brought this story to my attention was the fact that the Orange County Police Department released a series of photos, taken by Alcala, in an attempt to identify other potential victims. The photos are pretty nice portraits in and of themselves, but the backstory makes them creepy and mysterious. By the way, Alcala’s other claim to fame is that he was a winning contestant on “The Dating Game”.
He had already murdered two people at the time he appeared on this show! CREEPY
