The Kill Locker
I came across a website containing photographs that belonged to a man named Rodney Alcala. They were found in a locker rented out to Alcala in Seattle, WA, after he was charged with the murder of 5 missing women and children. His way of killing was particularly gruesome. There are as many as 100 unsolved murders spanning across the United States that could very well be attributed to this man who is known as the “Dating Game Killer” (due to his appearance as a contestant on the American TV show).
After reading the back story behind these photographs, you can’t help but feel a chill run down your spine. Alcala seems to try to capture a certain look in the model’s eye, to heighten the moment of the photograph by catching them off guard. It’s disturbing to think about what happened after the photographs were taken and what he may have done with them, but it’s absolutely fascinating to see through the eyes of such a disturbed mind.
I’ve left out the photographs of children because I can’t bare to think about what he was looking for in them, but you can see all the photographs here.
If the idea of looking at photographs taken by a serial killer makes you feel weird….You should probably not continue on…For what it’s worth, he had an eye for stylish ladies…
