Get ready for a journey into the life of the infamous Dating Game Killer, Rodney Alcala. A tale of his early life, military service, and the horrifying murder of his first known victim, 13-year-old Morgan Rowan, awaits. How did this man, who held academic achievements and had an outwardly normal life, turn into a monster? As we unravel his sordid past, we attempt to understand what drove him to commit such heinous acts.
Then, brace yourselves as we delve deeper into the sinister world of Alcala. The police's dismissal of Rowan's assault, the chilling murder of Cornelia Michael Krilli, and his eventual capture in 2011, all paint a haunting picture of a man capable of unimaginable evil. Not forgetting his disturbing appearance on The Dating Game show and the unsettling photographs he took, that sent shivers down our spines. His heinous crimes of mutilation and murder, including those of Jill Terry Barcomb and nurse Georgia Marie Wichsted, will leave you questioning the depths of human depravity.
Finally, we look into Alcala's last known victim, Robin Samsoe, and his subsequent arrest, trial, and death in 2021. The discovery of new evidence linking him to other murders and the release of photos potentially leading to undiscovered victims, adds a chilling endnote to his dark tale. As we discuss Alcala's attempt to defend himself in his 2010 trial and his additional sentence for the murders of Cornelia Criley and Ellen Hoover, you'll realize that the story is far from over.
