texting in dating - Dating game murder photos

In 1968, Rodney Alcala, better known as “The Dating Game Killer,” lured eight-year-old Tali Shapiro to his Hollywood apartment.

Police were quick to arrive on the scene after a concerned motorist witnessed Alcala taking little Tali. Alcala fled before he could be apprehended and went to New York.

He had somehow got on the popular game show The Dating Game despite a 1972 conviction for raping an eight-year-old girl.

Tali Shapiro was raped and beaten with a steel bar, but because her parents refused to let her testify at Alcala's trial, he was paroled in 1974 after spending 34 months in jail on a lesser charge of child molestation. Alcala enjoyed photographing his victims – mostly attractive young women – after murdering them and putting their corpses in distorted, grotesque poses.

The photo was spotted by Thornton’s relatives in 2013.
