    Glad to see there's one less victim out of these pics. That clip said she was not quite 50, so she was probably born later this year in 1960. She says she was probably 12, 13 or 14, but can't be sure which. That would make that picture taken in 72, 73 or 74. Problem is Alcala was incarcerated then at least until Aug 4, 74. So she couldn't have been 12 or 13, but 14, and it was taken right after he got out of prison in 74 sometime. (Am I doing this math right?) Just trying to narrow down the time frame.

    Wow. Is it me or are the noses different? Maybe she had a nose job later?






    All kinds of hugs!

    You're right with the math. He was convicted in March, 1972 for the attack on the 8-yr old and sent to prison. There was a window of time between his release on August 3, 1974 and his arrest again on October 13 or 16 (I've seen two different dates) in HB with the 13-yr old. That's when the photo was probably taken. I'm assuming he wouldn't have been eligible for bail in October, but who knows, since in 1979 a Riverside judge granted him bail after the rape of the 15-year old and he went on to kill at least two other people before his final arrest for the Samsoe murder.

    This woman, who was around 14 at the time, should consider herself VERY lucky she didn't end up as one of his victims.

    I can't even imagine what she (or any others) would feel if/when they see themselves in this man's collection of photos. "Wow" seems like an understatement.

    The video says she lived in North Hollywood and spent time in Palm Springs area.

    When the reporter said that Ruiz is one of nine women had identified themselves so far, mostly in posed photos, they show three other Alcala photos (the wire fence girl, the peach top girl and the nude shoulders blonde in front of window). You reckon it was just a reporter's choice or are those among the identified?

    You got this first. I wanted my 1st post of identified the mystery picture #200 as Peri Ruiz with that link I found from yesterday afternoon. But I has to wait for the site to activate me before I could post this. I'm glad it's one less victim.

    On the bright side, we know of 4 of the nine. The two Danish women, this woman and the woman in the white dress with the gold cross. I wish we knew about the others as well but perhaps LE doesn't see fit to publish the information without their express consent.

    True. I read that one of the women was molested by Alcala but the statute of limitations has expired. She likely would not want her photo identified.

    She's just about my age...i even had a pair of jeans like that! but she's much cuter than i was at that age!
    I am pretty sure most of those people will be found alive...the guy was obviously a pervert and voyeur who liked taking pictures of pretty girls, and probably seemed unthreatening because he was attractive. She's right, we were so much more naive in those days, even though it was not long after Charles Manson.

    It would be great to find out who she really is....case #587UFCA
