Rodney Alcala had already killed four people -- at least four people -- when he appeared on The Dating Game.
He was arrested in 1971, but only sent to prison on charges of assault (Shapiro’s family kept her from testifying, making a rape conviction unattainable).
After spending three years behind bars, he soon spent another two years in prison for assaulting a 13-year-old girl.
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.
