(CNN) -- Hoping to solve numerous cold cases, authorities on Thursday released more than a hundred photos of unidentified women and children found in a storage unit that belonged to a serial killer who appeared on "The Dating Game." Investigators are trying to determine if some of the people in the pictures were victims of Rodney Alcala, 66, who was convicted in February of murdering a child and four women between November 1977 and June 1979.
Anyone with information regarding the identities of the women and children in the photographs found in Alcala's storage locker is asked to contact Huntington Beach Police at 714-375-5066 or the Orange County District Attorney's Office at 714-347-8492.
Alcala may have appeared likable to viewers at home, but Bachelor No.
2, Jed Mills, said he was the complete opposite when they sat together in the green room before the show.
"The defendant used a large rock to smash in the victim's face, causing blunt force trauma, and strangled her to death by tying her belt and pant leg around her neck.
He then left the victim's body in a mountainous area in the foothills near Hollywood." The body was discovered soon after, and biological evidence was collected, but DNA technology was not yet available to find her killer.
"Although we hope that the people depicted are not victims, we believe the release may help solve some cold cases and bring closure to victims' families." Anyone with information regarding the identities of the women and children in the photographs is asked to contact Huntington Beach Police at 714-375-5066 or the Orange County District Attorney's Office at 714-347-8492.
