    Introducing: The Dating Game Killer

    Introducing: The Dating Game Killer

    In 1978, Rodney Alcala won a date on the popular TV show, The Dating Game. What no one knew was that he was a prolific serial killer in the middle of a cross-country murder spree. In this six-part series, co-hosts Tracy Pattin (Hollywood & Crime) and Stephen Lang (Avatar, Don’t Breathe) take listeners on an unbelievable journey into Alcala’s twisting secret life. He hid behind normal jobs as a typesetter at a prominent newspaper and a summer camp counselor. How did this predatory monster fool employers, prison psychiatrists, and parole boards — all while committing heinous crimes from coast to coast? And how did a one-time appearance as a game show contestant help lead to his capture? From the makers of Dirty John, Dr. Death, and Young Charlie, learn the story of the most famous serial killer you’ve never heard of - The Dating Game Killer.

    Dossier 5 (Joseph Miranda)

    Dossier 5 (Joseph Miranda)

    It was 2006 and 19-year-old Joseph Miranda was working at a landscape company in Maryland, called Outside Unlimited. It was nearing the end of his shift and he was ready to head out and meet up with some friends. However, it was summer time and his company was working on some major landscaping projects with deadlines. So, his supervisor asked him to finish up one more task so that he would be ahead of the game for his shift the following morning. That’s when everything changed. Joseph attempted to complete the task but there was one Bobcat in the yard, and it was already in use by another employee. So, Joseph talked to the driver on the Bobcat and decided to wait his turn. It was a normal day, nothing out of the ordinary, really; and Joseph didn’t know that waiting to complete this particular task would turn deadly.

    Was it a tragic workplace accident? Perhaps; as that’s what was initially reported. The medical examiner ended up changing the manner of death from accidental to homicide by assault. So, was it something more sinister? More intentional?

    Chapter 7 - Episode 4 (Tawnya D Knight)

    After the release of Chapter 7, we received a message from the county sheriff's detective who worked the Tawnya Knight disappearance, and later her murder case.

    He's since retired, but he very generously agreed to an interview on the record to tell "the rest of the story" of the homicide investigation.

    Chapter 7: Episode 3 (Tawnya D. Knight)

    This is episode 3 of a three-part chapter. If you haven't listened to episodes 1 and 2 yet, please do so before proceeding with episode 3; in order to grasp an understanding of the facts as well as key interviews regarding the case. In this episode, we discuss theories about what may have happened on that fateful night in December of 1996. Additionally, we analyze the facts that we know about the case and try to shed as much light as possible on the details and circumstances involved. We run through some key points from the recording with Steve in order to determine what we think may be useful in the case as well as discuss what is needed to solve the case today.

    If you believe you have information about the night Tawnya went missing, the Johnson County Sheriff's Department asks that you call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS.
