LAPD asks again for help with possible Grim Sleeper victims

sleeper-med.jpgLos Angeles police are still trying to identity 42 of the women whose photographs showed up in the possession of accused Grim Sleeper serial killer Lonnie Franklin Jr. back in 2010. Today, the department took to social media to try find out what happened to these women. "The photographs were taken between the years of 1976 and 2010. These women have yet to be identified, and the Department is asking for the public’s help," says the department blog. "If anyone recognizes any of the women in the photographs, Facebook or Twitter may be used to make a positive identification." The LAPD has already identified more than 100 women whose pictures Franklin had. Not all were homicide victims. Slide show | Blog post | LAPD Grim Sleeper on Facebook
