LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The alleged serial killer known as the “Grim Sleeper” was in court for a pretrial hearing Monday.
Lonnie Franklin, Jr., now 60 years old, faces 10 counts of murder and one count of attempted murder for the deaths of women who were shot, strangled or both over several decades in Los Angeles.
During the investigation, officials recovered nearly 180 photos of women, some dating back to the 1970s, from Franklin’s South Los Angeles home.
The Los Angeles Police Department continues to seek the public’s help in identifying women in 38 remaining photos.
Head of the LAPD’s Grim Sleeper task force, Det. Dennis Kilcoyne, told KNX 1070 they have done everything they can, including using social media, to identify the remaining women.
