Rodney Alcala (born Rodney James Alcala; August 23 1943) is a convicted rapist and serial killer. Upon his 2010 conviction for five murders from the 1970's, American mass media dubbed him the "Dating Game Killer".

On 9 March 2010 the trial jury concluded the penalty phase of the trial with a verdict recomendation for Death; this is Alcala's third Death sentence for Robin Samsoe and first for 4 others
