    Police ID 21 of the women

    http://www.foxnews.com/us/2010/04/10...est=latestnews

    HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Huntington Beach police have identified 21 women who appear in photos found in a convicted serial killer's storage locker.
    But detectives are still seeking the identity of more than 100 other females — and at least two young men — who posed for Rodney Alcala during the 1970s.
    Police say none of the 21 women matched up to a missing persons case or an unsolved homicide.
    Detectives were inundated with more than 500 phone calls and hundreds of e-mails after the photos were posted on the Orange County Register's Web site. Huntington Beach police released the photos to the newspaper last month after Alcala was sentenced to death for the murders of four women and a 12-year-old girl.
    The photos were found in Alcala's Seattle storage locker in 1979.

    Detectives identify some who posed for Alcala
    THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER
    Published: April 9, 2010
    Updated: April 10, 2010 9:36 a.m.

    They have been able to identify 21 young women in the photo catalogue after they were inundated with phone calls, e-mails and other contacts, but none matched up to a missing persons case or an unsolved homicide from the 1970s.

    Some of the females who posed for Alcala phoned in and identified themselves, said Huntington Beach Police Capt. Chuck Thomas. A few even remembered the time they posed for a glib-talking photographer.

    But detectives are still seeking the identity of more than 100 other females – and at least two young men – who posed for Alcala during the years he was roaming the streets torturing, sexually assaulting and murdering young women.

    snip

    Many of the phone calls were from relatives of females who were murdered more than three decades ago, or who have been missing since the 1970s.

    The callers were seeking answers, or closure, or both, Thomas said, and many of the calls were heartbreaking. He said one call came from a parent who was adamant that one of the photos in Alcala's catalogue was that of their murdered daughter, only to learn that Alcala was in custody in Orange County when the young woman was killed.

    "These relatives are desperate for answers," Thomas said.

    Other calls rushed in from cold-case homicide detectives around the world, seeking information about Alcala's murderous method of operation to see if he could be responsible for cold-case murders in those jurisdictions. One of those calls came from Denmark after a detective there identified the background in one of Alcala's photos.

    Police officials from Seattle, New York, Phoenix, Albuquerque and New Hampshire re-opened cold-case murder investigations because of the renewed interest in Alcala caused by the publication of the photos.

    Detectives in some of those jurisdictions have ruled out Alcala as a suspect in some unsolved homicides after they studied a timeline developed by HBPD and learned that their killings occurred during times when Alcala was in custody in other cases.

    Will Delker, senior assistant attorney general in New Hampshire, said cold-case detectives in his office have reviewed the photos and are looking at unsolved murder cases there between 1968 and 1971 – when Alcala may have been living in New Hampshire as a fugitive from a rape and attempted murder case out of Los Angeles County.

    If you know any of the people in Alcala's photos, contact Huntington Beach Police Detective Patrick Ellis, at 714-375-5066, or email him at pellis@hbpd.org.

    21 Women Identified From Rodney Alcala's "Archives"

    "One of the more than 500 calls received after releasing the photos came from a parent who was adamant that one of the photos in Alcala's catalog was that of their murdered daughter, only to learn that Alcala was in custody in Orange County when the young woman was killed"

    and

    "Investigators in New York City are looking at two unsolved murders from 1977 and 1971.

    One of those is the case of Ellen Jane Hover, 23, a restaurant heiress who disappeared in 1977 after leaving her Manhattan apartment."

    and

    "He is also a suspect in the June 12, 1971, rape and strangulation of Cornelia Crilley, a 23-year-old TWA flight attendant whose body was found in her Manhattan apartment on 83rd Street." <snipped>

    SEATTLE — An image of Cherry Greenman, who was last seen in Waterville in 1976, is not among photographs once owned by a convicted killer.

    A photograph that may have been Greenman was shown to her family and the family said it was not her, said Sgt. John Urquhart, a spokesman for the King County Sheriff’s Office.

    Not sure I understand what they mean in the rest of this story:

    SEATTLE — An image of Cherry Greenman, who was last seen in Waterville in 1976, is not among photographs once owned by a convicted killer.

    A photograph that may have been Greenman was shown to her family and the family said it was not her, said Sgt. John Urquhart, a spokesman for the King County Sheriff’s Office.

    Greenman, who was 19 in 1976, was last seen when she was released from the Douglas County Jail in Waterville that year, Urquhart said. Her hometown at the time is not known today. Greenman’s family reported her missing in 2004, Urquhart said.

    It had been suspected that Greenman was a victim of Rodney Alcala because someone who saw photographs of potential Alcala victims on a Web site said one photograph may have been her. Alcala was sentenced to death March 30 in Santa Ana, Calif., for five killings in the 1970s.


    I'm confused. Why was she not reported missing for 28 years?

    Has she been found since she first went missing and then went missing again, what do they mean about her home town at the time is not known today?

    NYPD refusing to release photos.

    But hundreds more photos have yet to be released - because the New York Police Department refuses to make them public.



    Rodney Alcala& Secret Photos. (Huntington Beach Police Dept.)
    Former Huntington Beach detective Steve Mack is baffled by the NYPD's resistance to releasing the photos, according to the New York Daily News.


    "They should be released. There are people who will identify their missing loved ones," Mack told the paper Monday.

    Cops yesterday released 226 pictures of women they believe were photographed by the death-row psycho while he lived in New York in the 1970s. They want to identify the women, who might be dead or alive.
