Dating Death

Part 3 of 3

True-crime documentary looking at the extraordinary case of Rodney Alcala, a man who was linked to 130 deaths and became infamous when it was revealed he had appeared on a TV dating show in the middle of his shocking murder spree.

The stranger-than-fiction true story charts the signals that were missed by investigators and the clever character manipulation that enabled Alcala to maintain a charming façade while masking a deadly secret. In spite of warning flags, Alcala preyed on children and young women in the Los Angeles area over two decades and his brutal killing spree went unchecked.
