We don't have a Serial Killer thread?

Post by lukethedrifter »

hmmm. Well, I suppose this could go in WTF ...


This is Rodney Alcala in 1978 after AFTER he had already murdered several women and more importantly (because he had not been charged with the murders yet) served prison time for the rape and beating of an 8 year old. Even back then how could they not do a background check?

I saw a pretty good TV documentary about that. Yeah, the folks on "The Dating Game" apparently weren't so much with the background checks.

And since we now have a Serial Killer thread, I can post one of my favorite all-time weird photos. A game show is one thing but one would imagine that the United States Secret Service would do background checks...

Well, Gacy wasn't even remotely suspected of anything at the time of that photo and was, in fact, considered quite an upstanding and active member of the community, from what I've read.

Yeah, the Secret Service did not come out of that looking so good. Wikipedia has a pretty good rundown on Gacy.

a valedictorian at my HS.

Lived a few blocks from my childhood home- his apt on my paper route. Didn't know him, but knew all sorts of people with connections to this guy, including an EMT co-worker of his that he poisoned.
