Dating game contestant killed
His father moved the family to Mexico when Alcala was eight years old, only to abandoned them there three years later.
His mother then moved Alcala and his sister to suburban Los Angeles.
"He is showing his psychopathic personality in the green room," she said. Those were his enemies, and he had to beat them to get the girl and he wanted to win. This guy was going on the show to prove how special and wonderful he was.
As you can probably imagine, Cheryl Bradshaw’s rejection likely only fueled Alcala’s fire.
He was always looking down and not making eye contact.” Had the popular dating show performed background checks on their bachelors, they would have discovered that this “kind of good-looking but kind of creepy” guy had already spent three years in prison for raping and beating an eight-year-old girl (he’d done the same to a 13-year-old too), which landed him on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives List.
But sometimes a background check can’t even uncover the whole story.
His signatures were beating, biting, raping, and strangling (often choking victims until the point of unconsciousness, then once they came to, he’d start the process over again).
On his first known attempt at killing, he was successful at only two of these things.
