The Grim Sleeper

The Grim Sleeper

A serial killer known as the Grim Sleeper has killed at least 11 people over two decades  in south Los Angeles. He targets black women, some working as prostitutes, and uses the same small-caliber gun. He shot one woman, a lone survivor, before pushing her out of his car. Nicknamed for taking a long break between attacks, the killer has left DNA and fingerprints, but police couldn’t find a name to match. On July 7, 2010, LAPD detectives arrested Lonnie David Franklin, Jr., 57, charging him with 10 of the murders.
