Christine Pelisek Finds a New Serial Killer On the Loose

New job, same Christine Pelisek. The former LA Weekly writer, who now writes for The Daily Beast, discovered the existence of the “Grim Sleeper” serial killer on the loose in Los Angeles two years ago. Now she’s written about a new serial killer roaming the Southland.

From Pelisek’s story in the Daily Beast:

The first body was found in a patch of weeds in L.A.’s industrial wastelands. The victim, a woman, was naked; her feet and wrists had been bound.

The second body was discovered in a vacant field near a school sixty miles east of the city. The woman, also naked, lay facedown, in a semi-fetal position.

The third body was found, partially clothed, in a dirt gulley of a desolate area miles away in the county of Riverside. She, like the others, had been strangled.

The murders were 20 years apart yet police believe they were committed by the same person—a serial killer still on the loose.

It should go without saying, but we’ll say it anyway. Creepy.
