Dating game murder photos
Soon thereafter, Acala was indicted for the murders of several other women throughout the country.
During investigations, officials found more than 1,000 sexually explicit photos taken by Acala of women and teenaged boys.
"The Dating Game Killer", is a convicted serial killer and rapist currently on trial for additional murders.
Alcala was born Rodrigo Jacques Alcala Buquor in Texas in 1943. After he suffered a nervous breakdown, he was medically discharged when the military psychiatrist diagnosed him with antisocial personality disorder.
Still, it wasn't until 1980 when Alcala would be convicted of murder.
"We've received several calls saying that someone in a photo could be so-and-so who's been missing or found dead," Ellis said Friday.Acala was sentenced to death for the murder, but the verdict was overturned by the California Supreme Court because jurors were not properly informed of his previous sex crimes.He was convicted and sentenced to death again for the crime in 1986."The response has been overwhelming, and that's what we were looking for." Investigators are trying to determine whether any of the people in the photos were victims of Rodney Alcala, 66, who was convicted in February of kidnapping and murdering a 12-year-old girl and raping and murdering four Los Angeles County women in the 1970s.A jury this week recommended he be sentenced to death.
