Reward Offered for L.A.’s “Grim Sleeper” Killer

A $500,000 reward has been offered for the information on a serial killer in Los Angeles. His (or her) murder streak has spanned from 1985 to as recently as 2007. Because of the enormous gaps in homicides, detectives have deemed the killer the “Grim Sleeper”. Most of his 11 victims (there may be more, but these were proven through DNA evidence) were female, black, and most likely drug addicts/prostitutes. The homicides occurred at a time when crack emerged in the inner cities of LA, and added to their race and gender, police were slow to jump on these cases. Father of 18 year old victim Alicia Alexander recalls, “I said make sure you go to the store and come back. She says, ‘OK,”‘ Porter Alexander said. “She left, and that was the last time I saw my baby.” Link! via CNN
