Serial killer who was on the dating game
It was definitely a draw for me in choosing to do this movie,” Diaz says.
I had all of that history in the back of my head when I was playing the character, obviously, but I didn’t want it to sidetrack me or derail me.
I also didn’t want to use that or let that inform me too much because then you’re playing the ending of the film.
This event is what opens ID’s movie about Alcala, but it is only the beginning: Alcala went on to become one of the most prolific serial killers in American history, with 130 murders linked back to him, made further infamous by the fact that he appeared on “The Dating Game” during the height of his crimes.
“To find out [“The Dating Game Killer”] was going to be ID’s first scripted movie, I felt really proud and wanted to do an extra good job in the role.
Killer” was already a murderer at the time of his TV appearance.
Now he’s back on TV, of sorts, thanks to two TV specials about his grisly crimes. 1 on a 1978 episode of the ABC game show, introduced as a “successful photographer.” He ended up winning a date with that episode’s bachelorette, Cheryl Bradshaw, but she refused to go out with him afterward.
Investigators believe the now 73-year-old Alcala killed Thornton in Sweetwater County based on a photo that appears to show her on remote public land near Granger, near where her remains were found.
The photo was found while searching Alcala's possessions during a previous investigation.
