In 1964, Rodney, then a 21-year-old, was diagnosed with antisocial personality disorder.
During this period, Rodney became the contestant on a popular TV show called The Dating Game, and won the competition.
Cheryl Bradshaw, the woman whom he won a date with, was affectively creeped out by his demeanor and refused to go on the actual date.
Dating is hard, but it must be especially hard if you’re a serial killer. While Rodney Alcala’s body count is unknown, police estimate he killed dozens of women at least, some believe he could have killed up to 130 people, reports Not only did he brazenly appear on television in 1978 while murdering people in his spare time, he actually won the show.
Presumably that’s why one of the most infamous serial killers in U. Possibly the most morbid example ever of nice guys finishing last.
Rodney Alcala, a serial killer active in the 1960s-70s, is one such murderer who has fascinated people for decades.
You have to see why people are so obsessed with his case…
His appearing on the show at all is seriously unbelievable as he’d already been convicted of raping an eight-year-old girl in 1972.
However, his performance as contestant number one managed to woo Cheryl Bradshaw and she chose him as her date.
He would photograph his victim’s corpses in disgusting poses.
