    John Berger/Burger

    How do you think Alcala came up with the name John Berger/Burger for his alias? Did he take over someone's identity? Steal their SS# somehow? It was said that he met Ellen Jane Hover (most likely one of his victims) at the unemployment building. Could he have gained access to records there?

    Could have although it appears that he was using this alias around the time the Day of the Jackal came out ... that's my first thought.

    In the course of his studies, it would not have been unlikely for him to have encountered/read about John Berger:

    Pink, I read that same thing and more about that guy as soon as I saw his alias. He'd be cocky enough to choose that name, but doubt he knows him is right.
