Serial Killer Suspected In Bay Area Cold Case

SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a convicted serial killer on death row is suspected in the long-unsolved murder of a 19-year-old aspiring actress in the San Francisco Bay area.

The Orange County Register reported Monday that Marin County investigators believe Rodney Alcala was responsible for the death of Pamela Lambson in 1977. However, detectives say Alcala won’t be charged because of insufficient genetic material.

Alcala was convicted last year of murdering a 12-year-old girl and four women in Southern California in the late 1970s. He was recently indicted in the deaths of two women in New York.

Lambson disappeared after she went to pose for a freelance photographer in San Francisco. Her battered body was found the next day.

Alcala, who acts as his own attorney, is in prison and could not be immediately reached.
