    Grim Sleeper didn't 'sleep,' LAPD says

    Detectives believe two killings during the 13-year gap between groups of homicides were committed by Lonnie Franklin Jr. The lead investigator says he wouldn't be surprised if the gap eventually closes completely.
    Los Angeles police say they have linked two more slayings to alleged serial killer Lonnie Franklin Jr., persuading detectives that he never stopped killing during the supposed dormant period that led to his nickname of the Grim Sleeper.

    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    Sounds like this PR is today.

    "Los Angeles police Chief Charlie Beck plans to discuss the case and release images of possible victims at a 4 p.m. news conference."

    Accused 'Grim Sleeper' suspected in more deaths

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) A retired sanitation worker accused of murdering 10 women and girls who has been dubbed the "Grim Sleeper" may have killed eight additional victims, police said on Tuesday.

    Police officials said there may be even more victims of Lonnie David Franklin Jr, 58, who allegedly targeted black women and girls in south Los Angeles in a string of killings that began in the 1980s.

    Investigators said they were not free to release new information about the other eight potential victims until now.

    Grim Sleeper: LAPD believes serial killer suspect reported slaying to 911

    Now, prosecutors say it might have been Franklin himself who placed that 911 call.

    They want permission to record Franklin's voice so they can compare it to the 24-year-old tape. A match of the voices would add to a trove of evidence -- including DNA -- that detectives say connects Franklin to at least 10 murders in the 1980s and 1990s.

    The Grim Sleeper’s Trial Is Moving at Snail’s Pace, and Victims’ Families Are Furious
    Mar 21, 2013 4:45 AM EDT
    Notorious serial killer the Grim Sleeper was on the lam for decades. Now there’s a suspect, but his lawyers are dragging their feet. Christine Pelisek on the excruciatingly slow march to justice.

    For the past three years, Diana Ware has often made the 30-mile bus trek from the middle-class suburb of West Covina, California, to the criminal-courts building in downtown Los Angeles. The bus drops her off a block from the courthouse, and she walks the rest of the way. “Lately it has been harder,” says the retiree. “It winds me, and I have a bad knee.”
    The 74-year-old former office worker has made the journey to attend the pretrial hearings for “Grim Sleeper” serial killer suspect Lonnie Franklin Jr., the former sanitation worker accused of killing Ware’s 23-year-old stepdaughter, Barbara, and nine other women. Since Franklin was arrested on July 10, 2010, she has missed only two of over a dozen hearings, one because she had a doctor’s appointment.

    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The so-called "Grim Sleeper" serial murder suspect's trial was expected to take place this year. But it is far off schedule with no trial date in sight. Frustrated family members of the victims spoke out exclusively to Eyewitness News.
    ...
    Ware and more than a half-dozen others came to Monday's pre-trial hearing as they have for all court proceedings in the case. They had expected Franklin's trial to be under way by now. Instead it has been one defense delay after another. In every hearing the prosecutors and the judge have prodded defense attorney Seymour Amster to move forward.

    Monday the prosecutors brought evidence Amster had requested, but then Amster said he wanted to wait before taking it.

    "I just feel it is a proper procedure just to have a paralegal there," said Amster.

    LAPD officials and the district attorney say that the delays cost taxpayers money and victims' families pain.

    Family seeks justice for likely victim of Grim Sleeper, but probably won't get it

    SAN GABRIEL - There won't be justice for Rowenia Morris, if the Grim Sleeper trial proceeds as expected.

    There won't be closure if her body is never found. But her family is seeking some semblance of closure anyway.

    "I was hopeful that my sister was going to come home," said LaTanya Clark, who has followed the Grim Sleeper case closely ever since Morris was linked to the suspect, Lonnie David Franklin Jr., through photographs.
