After working LAPD uniform patrol for six-years, I transferred to Hollywood Detectives and one of my first case assignments was the investigation of the rape and attempted murder of the eight-year-old victim, Tali Shapiro.
Tali’s assailant was RODNEY JAMES ALCALA, who after serving less than three years for the attempted murder of young Tali in his “1 to 99-year indeterminate sentence” after a prison psychiatrist declared him “cured” was released from prison and would go on to become one of America’s most notorious serial killers.
