(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.
A jury this week recommended a death sentence for Alcala, who appeared on the popular dating show in 1978 as Bachelor No. "We balanced the privacy concerns of those depicted in the decision to release these pictures," Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas said in a statement.
"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.
