As many of you who follow the missing people/true crime news know, a serial killer named Rodney Alcala has generated a great deal of interest due to a bunch of photos he has of unidentified women. The police are trying to identify the subjects in the pictures, to see if any of them were his victims. Last week Alcala was convicted of murdering four women and a twelve-year-old girl in California in the 1970s, and is being looked at in a lot of other cases too.
According to the Seattle Times, one of those cases is the 1976 disappearance of nineteen-year-old Cherry Greenman from Waterville, Washington. The cops investigated Gary Leon Ridgeway, the Green River Killer, for Cherry but failed to find any linkage there. Perhaps they’ll have better luck with Alcala?
