Rodney James Alcala (born Rodrigo Jacques Alcala Buquor; August 23, 1943) is an American convicted rapist and serial killer.
He was sentenced to death in California in 2010 for five murders committed in that state between 19.
In 2016, he was charged with the 1977 murder of a woman identified in one of his photos.
He is sometimes called the "Dating Game Killer" because of his 1978 appearance on the television show The Dating Game in the midst of his murder spree.
In 1986, after a second trial virtually identical to the first except for omission of the prior criminal record testimony, he was again convicted and sentenced to death.
In 1978, Alcala was a contestant on the popular game show The Dating Game.
Host Jim Lange introduced him as a "successful photographer who got his start when his father found him in the darkroom at the age of 13, fully developed.
In 1954 his mother moved Alcala and his siblings (two sisters and a brother) to suburban Los Angeles when he was about 11 years old. To evade the resulting arrest warrant, Alcala left the state and enrolled in the NYU film school, using the name "John Berger".
In 1971, he obtained a counseling job at a New Hampshire arts camp for children using a slightly different alias, "John Burger".
