Cheryl bradshaw dating game
Tali Shapiro and her family had moved to Mexico after she was attacked, meaning she was not at the trial to testify against Alcala.
An attempt had also been made to strangle her with a metal bar.
As luck would have it, another driver saw Tali being lured into a car with no licence plates and instantly got a bad feeling about it.
The driver followed the car to an apartment building and called the police.
In September 1978, Alcala participated in ‘The Dating Game’ as Bachelor No. Alcala was in his element in the public eye, clearly feeling pretty smug about his deception of law enforcement and the public.
Host Jim Lange introduced Alcala with this description:“A successful photographer who got his start when his father found him in the darkroom at the age of 13, fully developed.”This wouldn’t have been as funny if they had known that Alcala was was actively killing women when he wasn’t participating in game shows.
