Criminal profiler Pat Brown later suggested that this rejection angered Alcala further since he afterwards killed at least three more women within two years.His last known victim was 12-year-old Robin Samsoe, who was abducted on her way to ballet class in 1979 in Huntington Beach and her decomposing body found in the Sierra Madres twelve days later.They reported Alcala to the authorities, leading to him being extradited to California.Because Shapiro's family had moved to Mexico and wouldn't let their daughter testify, Alcala got off with a guilty plead for a lesser assault charge.When they knocked on the door, he escaped out the back and evaded arrest. In 1971, Alcala is believed to have raped and strangled Cornelia Crilley, a Trans World Airlines flight attendant, in her Manhattan apartment.He was placed on the FBI's Top Ten Most Wanted list. The same year, two children at the camp saw the FBI's Wanted poster and told the camp's staff about it.He was found guilty on all counts and is currently on death row in San Quentin State Prison.
He was also questioned as a convicted sex offender in connection with the Hillside Strangler investigation.When the FBI connected him to his old alias, they questioned him.He confessed to knowing Hover, but denied committing the murder.While in prison, he published a book titled You, The Jury, in which he denied killing Samsoe and posited another suspect.He also tried to sue the California penal system twice; once for a slip-and-fall accident and once because the prison hadn't given him a low-fat diet.
Alcala was born Rodrigo Jacques Alcala Buquor in Texas in 1943. After he suffered a nervous breakdown, he was medically discharged when the military psychiatrist diagnosed him with antisocial personality disorder.
