Lonnie Franklin Jr. is known as the “Grim Sleeper.” This convicted serial killer was just sentenced to death in a Los Angeles Superior Court.
His death sentence was for ten Los Angeles murders that happened over the time period of three decades. You can find many news articles and details online if you just search for “grim sleeper.”
But I do not want to talk about him. I want to talk about the victims who the police have not been able to identify. They need help.
“Police are still trying to identify 33 women whose snapshots were found in Lonnie Franklin Jr.’s home after his arrest.
The images were part of a chilling discovery of nearly 1,000 photos of women or teenage girls — many nude and some who appeared to be unconscious or dead — hidden in Franklin’s house.
The collection included photographs of several victims, which leads police and prosecutors to believe Franklin left behind many more.”
