LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police detectives say they have tentatively identified about 29 of the 160 women whose photos were found in the home of a man suspected of being the “Grim Sleeper” serial killer.
 


Detectives said Monday that they were able to remove 29 photos from the collection posted online. They say the majority of the women in the photos are alive and well. A few have died from natural causes and a few are missing persons.

The LAPD website where the photos were posted got thousands of hits and police were inundated with phone calls, emails and other tips.

Last week, police released 180 images that were taken from photographs or home video found in suspect Lonnie Franklin Jr.’s home and garage.
