Dating game contestant murderer

Though Alcala won the contest, the female contestant wouldn't go on a date with him because she thought he was "creepy".

In 1977, Alcala got permission from his parole officer to visit relatives in New York City.

Shortly after arriving (coincidentally during the time that Son of Sam was active), he is believed to have killed Ellen Jane Hover, a 23-year-old socialite.

A new trial would start with Acala charged for five murders (including the murder of Robin Samsoe).

“If there is a hell, I hope Rodney Alcala burns eternally,” one of Alcala’s victim’s sister told the court, according to CNN.

He was placed on the FBI's Top Ten Most Wanted list. The same year, two children at the camp saw the FBI's Wanted poster and told the camp's staff about it.

They reported Alcala to the authorities, leading to him being extradited to California.

Because Shapiro's family had moved to Mexico and wouldn't let their daughter testify, Alcala got off with a guilty plead for a lesser assault charge.
