Creep-tastic: A Jail Letter By Serial Killer Alcala Put Up For Sale
The handwritten note was penned by Alcala during his trial on charges that he killed four women and a 12-year-old girl in the 1970s. The seller states that the murderer wrote it from Orange County Jail.
The note says that he has asked an actress for a photo. Alcala also writes about the use of computers during the trial. The seller, a website called Serial Killers Ink, asks $95 for the letter, envelope included.
As a selling point, the site notes that Alcala, who once appeared as a contestant on TV's Dating Game, is being looked at in connection with several other unsolved murders. Orange County authorities released dozens of '70s-era photos Alcala snapped to see if any of the subjects are missing.
The seller writes that " ... he could very well be the most prolific serial killer that California, if not the nation, has ever seen!"
