Rodney Alcala sentenced to death for murders of four women and girl, 12 | Mail Online
Police have released more than 100 photographs of unidentified women and girls amid fears they could be the victims of America's worst ever serial killer.
The pictures were taken by Rodney Alcala, who was sentenced to death by lethal injection for the savage murders of a 12-year-old girl and four women.
However, the 66-year-old has admitted killing another 30 women in the 1970s and police believe there could be many more victims.
They have already linked him to the deaths of two Seattle teenagers aged 13 and 17, and a 19-year-old who vanished from the same area, as well as two women in New York and several more in Los Angeles.
The photos were discovered hidden in a storage locker in Seattle, Washington, where Alcala, an amateur photographer, kept his possessions before his arrest.
Although many of the 1,000 pictures were innocent poses in a park or on the beach, some women had stripped off for the camera.
Police believe that Alcala - who is known in the U.S. as the Dating Game Killer because he once appeared on America's version of Blind Date - kept the photographs as sick souvenirs of his victims.
