Two Women Identify Themselves From Alcala Photos
April 22, 2010
The pictures in question were part of the full stock that police uncovered, more than 1,000 that they had originally been sitting on and only recently released to the public.
In it, there are many more women and children than originally believed, and authorities are desperate to identify as many as possible, some of which are likely unknown victims of the convicted serial killer.
Judy Cole was one of the women in the photos. According to her, Alcala charmed her into letting him take photos of her on a rooftop at the age of 19, and that even then he made her nervous. The picture was taken in New York City.
Another woman said that she was 13 when Alcala lured her to his apartment and tried to keep her there.
“I just thought he was a pervert,” Alice Feiring said of her narrow escape, when she managed to fight him off and run from his apartment. She was not in the photos.
The second woman to identify herself this week was unnamed, but she says he took the photograph in California in the 1970′s.
Eight tips have been gathered, so far.
