‘Grim Sleeper’ Story Still Evolving: More Victims Likely

Christine Pelisek, the Daily Beast reporter who broke the story of a serial killer on the loose in Los Angeles she called the Grim Sleeper, reveals in her latest piece that a new chapter in the saga may be unfolding. LAPD has released eight new photos of women who are missing, and who have had direct contact with Grim Sleeper suspect Lonnie Franklin Jr. in the past. The piece includes this morbid quote from LAPD detective Dennis Kilcoyne: “We have a strong suspicion that these eight people crossed paths with Mr. Franklin. In my opinion most of these girls went to landfills years ago.”

Yikes. Read all the terrifying details here.
