When Huntington Beach, Calif., detectives searched Rodney Alcala's Seattle storage locker during the Robin Samsoe murder investigation in 1979, they discovered a cache of photos, many of them young women in suggestive, and even pornographic poses.
In March 2010, after a third jury in 30 years handed Alcala a death sentence, Huntington Beach police released more than 100 of those photos hoping to identify the women and some children, and learn if Alcala claimed still more victims.
Most of those who have been identified are alive and well. But investigators continue to get new tips every day.
If you have information about the people in the following images, please contact Huntington Beach Police Det. Patrick Ellis at 714-375-5066 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
