“Rodney Alcala is an American convicted rapist and serial killer. He was sentenced to death in California in 2010 for five murders committed in that state between 1977 and 1979. In 2013, he received an additional sentence of 25 years to life after pleading guilty to two homicides committed in New York in 1971 and 1977. His true victim count remains unknown, and could be much higher..... ...In March 2010, the Huntington Beach and New York City Police Departments released 120 of Alcala's photographs and sought the public's help in identifying them, in the hope of determining if any of the women and children he photographed were additional victims. Approximately 900 additional photos could not be made public, police said, because they were too sexually explicit. In the first few weeks, police reported that approximately 21 women had come forward to identify themselves, and "at least six families" said they believed they recognized loved ones who "disappeared years ago and were never found". None of the photos were unequivocally connected to a missing person case or unsolved murder until 2013 when a family member recognized the photo of Christine Thornton, 28, whose body was found in Wyoming in 1982 (see below). As of September 2016, 109 of the original photos remain posted online, and police continue to solicit the public's help with further identifications.” wikipedia.
As I was looking through this album of Alcala’s potential victims I noticed that one of the girls looks pretty similar to Reet Jurvetson who was murdered in 1969 but left unifentified until 2015. A sketch of one of the main suspects in Reets murder also looks eerily similar to what Alcala looked like at the time. This is mainly just based off similarities in appearance so maybe I’m just grasping at straws here but who knows, thoughts?
Edit: it’s come to my attention that Alcala was posing as a NYU student under a fake name during the period of time that Reet was murdered so I’ll just use this post as a way to spread the photos I posted above in the hope someone could be recognized
