Fruitloops: Serial Killers of Color

E33: The Dating Game Killer Part 1

February 28, 2019

This episode is Part one of a two parter on Rodney Alcala, a Mexican American man who became known as the “Dating Game Killer” because of his appearance on the TV matchmaking show “The Dating Game” in 1978, while in the middle of his killing spree.

In this first part we dive into Alcala's background and early crimes.  As usual we close out the show with some shout outs, crime news and of course, some tips on how not to get shmurdered.
