The dating game killer

She is the latest victim to be linked to Alcala, nicknamed the “Dating Game Killer” because he appeared on TV’s in 1978. Alcala has been in prison since 1979 for the murder of a 12-year-old girl in California.

In the years since his incarceration, he has been linked to seven additional murders, including this most recent case in Wyoming.

For some, even hearing his name sends chills down the spine.

The charming but sinister smile made its name in 1978 when the producers of a dating TV-show called The Dating Game picked Alcala as a contestant.

Prosecutors in Rock Springs, Wyo., said Tuesday that one of those victims was Christine Ruth Thornton, 28, of San Antonio.
