"The idea is to figure out if these are other victims that belong to other cold cases and if they are we can hopefully bring some closure to these victims' families," she said. Alcala used his photography as a ruse to get close to his victims." Authorities already believe that Alcala may be responsible for deaths in New York, Schroeder said. After serving a 34-month sentence, he was released.
In November 1977, Alcala raped, sodomized and murdered Jill Barcomb, an 18-year-old New Yorker who had recently moved to California, the district attorney said.
Even a pre-"Charlie's Angels" Farrah Fawcett appeared on the program, introduced as "an accomplished artist and sculptress" with a dream to open her own gallery.The following month, Alcala raped, sodomized and murdered 27-year-old nurse Georgia Wixted, according to the district attorney."The defendant used the claw end of a hammer to beat the victim and smash in her head.The locker also contained earrings that belonged to 12-year-old Robin Samsoe, who Alcala abducted and killed in 1979, Schroeder said.The discovery of the earring in the locker has raised speculation that there may be other victims or that the photographs were trophies to Alcala, she said. Alcala is a predatory monster and we believe that he destroyed many lives everywhere he went." According to the Orange County District Attorney, Alcala was convicted in 1972 of kidnapping and molesting a child in Los Angeles County in 1968.
Alcala was convicted for Samsoe's murder in 1980 and sentenced to receive the death penalty, but the conviction was overturned by the California Supreme Court.
