BREAKING: Rodney Alcala, the man known as the "Dating Game Killer," has been sentenced to die for killing a 12-year-old Huntington Beach girl and four other Los Angeles County women in the 1970s. Authorities believe there may be more victims yet. Earlier this month, they released photos of women that had been found in a stash seized from Acala in 1979 — many of them sexually graphic. The photos had not been previously released to the public. Three of them reportedly show women who have been missing for decades. We introduced you to Alcala in February, the night he was convicted for those crimes, in this blog and the Mike von Fremd report below, "American Psycho." A UCLA grad, Alcala is undeniably an eccentric — he represented himself in his losing trial — and authorities say he used his charm and wit to prey on dozens of women. He also used it to win a popular game show that he would invoke in his defense — hence, the serial-killer nickname. Once again, Rodney Alcala has been sentenced to die in the state of California for his crimes. Click HERE for the full report.
