    Tammy Akers & Angela Rader

    Do these two girls from the photos look like Tammy Akers and Angela Rader to you?

    Rader and Akers left home together in February 1977, while Alcala was still in jail, but they had run away in the past and may have done so again. Alcala was released from jail in June and went to NYC, where he might well have encountered the girls.

    What do you think?

    WOW - I am usually skeptical and able to find differences but these all look so much alike, especially the brunette.

    Wow. This is a hit. The fact that they left home together and match two of his pictures, what are the chances it is a coincidence. You should notify the person in charge of their case.

    It looks to me that both girls are missing front teeth. Also, the cheekbones and eyes seem very similar.

    Okay, I submitted this one to Detective Ellis. I'll let everybody know if I hear anything.

    There are others pictures of the girl in the first photo. In fact, she's the girl in the straw hat. Compared to those photos, I don't think it's her.

    Here's the original post with all the photos listed:

    Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community - View Single Post - Police asks help identifying the people in photos taken by murderer

    It should probably be moved here along with the accompanying posts and also into the thread about the girl with the straw hat.

    IMO the girl with the straw hat is a different girl. Her face is less square and her eyes a little bigger.

    I agree. The girl in the hat is a different person.

    If the moderators think the post should be moved, of course that's fine, but I wanted these two girls together so I didn't have to double post to both threads. I don't think the girl in the straw hat is the same girl as the one in the orange blouse and red pants.

    I'm sorry. I apologize. I didn't realize they would go at the beginning of the thread, although now that I think about it it's rather obvious. I will ask for them to be removed.

    Oh, no problem. There are disadvantages to doing it either way -- may as well just leave it as is for now.

    The nose might not be right but the brunette in white looks a bit like Angela imo.

    She does have a similar overall look, but one thing I've learned following the UID's over the past few months: If the nose is wrong, it's not her (barring cosmetic surgery, I suppose). Likewise teeth and ears. I'm no better than I was at telling when faces match, but I'm getting a lot better at telling when they don't.
