Dating game contestant rodney alcala
As Huck in ABC’s “Scandal,” Guillermo Diaz is accustomed to playing a dark figure who does morally questionable things.But his new role as convicted serial killer Rodney Alcala in Investigation Discovery’s (ID) first scripted true crime project, “The Dating Game Killer,” takes things to a whole other level.A good samaritan happened to spot Alcala picking up the girl and called the police, which allowed them to get to her before Alcala could kill her.This event is what opens ID’s movie about Alcala, but it is only the beginning: Alcala went on to become one of the most prolific serial killers in American history, with 130 murders linked back to him, made further infamous by the fact that he appeared on “The Dating Game” during the height of his crimes.I kind of pictured him as a pied piper: people wanted to be around him and follow him.
6, Wyoming authorities flew to California State Prison in Corcoran where Alcala has been housed since receiving a pacemaker in 2015. ” – he stated, ‘She was alive before I left.'” Erramouspe says they gave Alcala an aerial photo of the area and he told them, “This is my area.” “We asked what he meant by that and he stated, ‘I have been here before,’ ” Erramouspe says.
The photos were found in a Seattle storage locker owned by the convicted serial killer.
Erramouspe says he and the police have no doubt that Alcala took the photo in Wyoming in August during his cross-country road trip from New York to Los Angeles.
“To find out [“The Dating Game Killer”] was going to be ID’s first scripted movie, I felt really proud and wanted to do an extra good job in the role.
It was definitely a draw for me in choosing to do this movie,” Diaz says.
It turns out the popular game show didn’t perform background check on its bachelors, which in Alcala’s case, would’ve uncovered some disturbing information.
