Here he changed his fake name to a slightly different one, John Burger.At the time, he was on the FBI Top Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list for the rape and attempted murder of Tali Shapiro, but given his changed identity, he was able to live undetected by law enforcement. Two campers from the arts camp recognised their counsellor on a wanted poster at the post office – not as John Burger, but as Rodney Alcala. Alcala was swiftly arrested and extradited to California.The police arrived, barged into the apartment, and found Tali lying in a pool of blood, raped and beaten within an inch of her life.An attempt had also been made to strangle her with a metal bar.Instead he drove around with her and offered her marijuana.She got away, telling the police she had been kidnapped.Robin said okay, however, when a neighbour appeared and asked the girls if everything was okay, the man looked as though he had seen a ghost.
To really understand the full extent of Alcala’s horrific crimes, I recommend reading this from beginning to end. In 1960, when Rodney was 17, he joined the US Army.He created an identity as a charming and charismatic fashion photographer with a job at the Los Angeles Times as a typesetter (who also happened to be a convicted sex offender, but he was very successful at keeping this under wraps).He also managed to convince his parole officer in LA to let him travel to New York to ‘visit family’ (very bad move).Alcala was not happy with the rejection, to say the least.It was summer in Southern California and 12-year-old Robin Samsoe was having a pretty great time.
