    Santa Ana -- "Nine women have been identified through photographs found in a storage locker owned by convicted serial killer Rodney Alcala so far, and all of them are alive.

    Huntington Beach police Capt. Chuck Thomas said one of them told authorities that Alcala molested her, but he added that the statute of limitations in that case has expired.

    There are also reports by at least 6 families who believe some of Alcala's pictures show loved ones who disappeared years ago and were never found."

    Profiler Pat Brown comments:

    She says it's creepier in retrospect now that we know he's done all that but that otherwise his behavior on the clip was what this show was all about back then. The other therapist on the video says the same thing and that the interesting thing about the video was that Rodney Alcala was doing a dating show at all, just like if nothing was amiss. There was a screen comment that he tried to use his appearance as evidence for himself in his trial. I suppose it was in the manner of "Hey, I wouldn't have done a dating show appearance if I was a serial killer, would I?"

    "The recent release of 100 of serial killer Rodney Alcala's decades-old photos is raising hopes -- and fears -- for those thinking the pictures may hold the answer to a loved one's fate. The photo release by Huntington Beach, Calif. police has prompted at least hundreds of calls, and so far, nine women have been identified through the pictures - thankfully, all of them are alive. "

    CONCORD, N.H. -- New Hampshire officials are investigating whether a serial killer known as the Dating Game Killer is tied to unsolved murders in the Granite State.

    Rodney Alcala has never been charged with a crime in New Hampshire, but he did live in the state in the late 1906s and early 1970s. He is currently on death row in California for killing four women and a 12-year-old girl.

    Authorities say 66-year-old Rodney Alcala lived in New Hampshire in the late 1960s and early 1970s, going by the name of John Berger.

    WMUR-TV says New Hampshire has nearly a half dozen unsolved homicides from that time.

    Meanwhile, King County sheriff's Detective Jake Pavlovich, who is also on the department's cold-case squad, plans to review some of the photos found in Alcala's Shoreline storage locker to see if they match any of its missing-persons cases, particularly that of Cherry Greenman, 19, who vanished from Waterville, Douglas County, in September 1976. The Sheriff's Office looked into her disappearance during the investigation into Green River serial killer Gary L. Ridgway but failed to find a link, Pavlovich said. <snipped>

    Lt. Mark Milstead, Youngstown Police Department, said officers between Youngstown and Huntington Beach spent time comparing notes and creating a time line Thursday. Police here have determined that Alcala is not responsible for Coughlin’s disappearance.

    According to Milstead, Alcala was in prison in California from October 1974 through June 1977. Coughlin was reported missing in December 1974.

    Alcala told the jury during his closing argument in essence that a vote for the death penalty would just force him to put his victim's families through more grief while he exercised every last right afforded to him in appealing a death penalty conviction. <snipped>

    It has been more than 35 years since Joanne Coughlin vanished from friends and family, but photos found in the possession of a convicted California killer may shed some light on what happened to the North Side woman.

    Coughlin went to the European Health Spa on Boardman-Canfield Road on Dec. 27, 1974, wearing a pair of blue jeans, black top and a green leather jacket. The 21-year-old aspiring actress also had plans to meet her boyfriend later that night, but has not been seen since the health spa visit.
