LAPD Expands Killer Probe To 230 Cases

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 9 (UPI) — Los Angeles police say they have widened the number of unsolved homicide cases they are reviewing in connection with the so-called Grim Sleeper serial killer.

Detectives are looking into 230 cases dating back as far 1976 that may be tied to the killer, The Los Angeles Times reported.

“There’s no telling what we will find,” said one source, who asked not to be named citing the ongoing criminal case.

The expansion began three months ago when LAPD robbery-homicide detectives requested the inclusion of South Los Angeles cases dating to 1976. Previously the number of reviewable cases stood at 60, dating to the early 1980s.

The LAPD is planning on rereleasing 51 photographs of women found in the July 2010 search of Grim Sleeper suspect Lonnie David Franklin Jr.’s home.

Franklin has pleaded not guilty to 10 murders and one attempted murder. Prosecutors announced Monday that they would seek the death penalty against Franklin.
