Like many serial killers, Rodney Alcala had a style.His signatures were beating, biting, raping, and strangling (often choking victims until the point of unconsciousness, then once they came to, he’d start the process over again).
When Alcala was eleven-years-old, his father abandoned the family and his mother moved the family to Los Angeles.
Shapiro barely survived her rape and beating; her life saved by a passerby who’d reported a tip to police on a possible abduction.
Alcala fled his apartment when the police arrived and remained a fugitive for years afterward.
He was a handsome, charming guy who posed as a fashion photographer.
No one knows for sure how many people Alcala killed, but authorities estimate the number to be 130. He was born in 1943 in Texas and his given name was Rodrigo Jacques Alcala Buquor.
