    The photos of unidentified women remind me of the photos Rodney Alcala had.

    Was he working at schools,I wonder. Or as a photographer, just like Alcala.

    Me, too. I remember when I first saw the pic, I scrolled through every single female on Doe Network looking for her. At first I thought Deana Patnode. Close but not quite. Drove me nuts. I had to stop looking for her.

    Newbie here...as I grew up in Queens, NY, this case always haunted me....I know the area quite well actually, but this happened long before then, when I was a kid. I don't know that I buy into the theories being tossed around in the book (I did read much of it a couple years ago)...it makes sense but it's really far fetched. One thing I didn't like was that they assert that Antonella Mattina died of multiple stab wounds to the chest, same as the woman who was kidnapped and scalped. I have never seen any cause of death released for AM..

    Anyway, the main reason I posted here...while it's thousands of miles away, I couldn't help but notice the similarity in appearance between Antonella Mattina and Jonelle Matthews, the 12 year old girl who disappeared in Colorado 5 months after Antonella did. She's all over the news now because her remains were just unearthed. It's a long shot I know, but two 12 year old girls with similar appearances and braces disappearing and found buried in rural areas - neither was ever intended to be found. It makes me wonder if maybe - just maybe, there was a connection...

    Thoughts?
