Charlotte Lamb was a legal secretary from Santa Monica who was killed at age 32 by serial killer Rodney James Alcala. Lamb’s naked body was found on June 24, 1978, in the laundry room of a large apartment complex in El Segundo. She had been sexually assaulted and strangled with a shoelace. The apartment manager found her body lying face up with her hands behind her back, but residents said they had never seen her before
