    The Grim Sleeper. Update: Arrest in the Grim Sleeper Case!

    Is anyone familiar with "The Grim Sleeper" case out in California? Suspect is unknown black male who allegedly has attacked 12 victims, 11 murdered with 1 survivor. Attacks all took place in the Los Angeles area from 1988-2002. This case needs to be spotlighted and I'm hoping that this discussion forum will help spotlight it and we can help the victims and their families.

    Tricia jumping in herelliottness,

    An arrest has been made. Here is one link.

    Discussion of the arrest takes place on page three of this thread.

    It seems he is active again, according to this article.

    I tried to copy and paste the first page and it wouldn't work for me.

    I thought we had a thread on this already? I did a search, so maybe not. Puzzling case anyway.

    I have heard of this guy before! I think there was an article I read in the LA Times which was basically railing against the police for not going public when he started killing again to warn the public. I look forward to reading this article in its entirety.

    He stopped killing for 13 years. There has to be a reason for that. My first guess would be that he was in prison which means his fingerprints and possibly DNA are on file.

    By any chance is it possible that it's a copycat?
    ETA, no, dosn't look like it, since they have DNA linking him. Wow.
    Then again, there's some victims that don't have his DNA it looks like. Maybe some are attributed to him that aren't actually his victims.

    I believe there are either DNA or Ballistics matches for nearly all victims.

    We have got to help these victims. I am very frustrated that this story has not been profiled on the news. I have a feeling that if these victims were white and in a middle-class or upper-class part of California that Nancy Grace and Greta Van Susteren would be profiling them every night. And I say this as a white person, but it really angers me how the white victims are spotlighted even when there is no news in the case yet the minority victims barely get any press.

    These women were victims of this monster and we have to help them. There must be something we can all do and that's what I'm trying to do.

    Police hunt 'Grim Sleeper' serial killer

    Police hunt 'Grim Sleeper' serial killer
    (CNN) -- Los Angeles police are searching for a serial killer dubbed the "Grim Sleeper," who is thought to have killed 11 people.

    The killer, who police say murdered from 1985 to 2007, was nicknamed the Grim Sleeper because he seemed to take a break between homicides, police said.

    [...]

    The killer is wanted in 11 deaths and another homicide attempt, police say.

    I am very familiar w/ this case. I have studied it for quite awhile. There are so many bizarre and strange facts that I can not believe this monster is still on the loose. The most recent info that I have seen on this case is that a 911 call was recently released to the public. I hope this will garner new info.

    Are you thinking of the East Area Rapist/Original Night Stalker? That is who I originally thought they were talking about. http://www.ear-ons.com/index2.html


    REgarding the GrimSleeper, it think it is alarming the chruch connections. Wonder if this is another Dennis Rader who was a church member/leader.

    This a.m. I was half asleep during the morning news shows. I vaguely remember them saying something about some other murders being tied to a serial killer including someone Asthon Kurcher dated. Did anybody else see that? Was it the GrimSleeper they were talking about? (I will search when I have more time)

    No, I was definitely thinking of the Grim Reaper. Must have been on one of the other boards I frequent. Thanks for the suggestion, though.

    I agree! All these poor people need more voices to speak up for them!

    They are linking the murder of a former g/f of Ashton Kurcher to a murder in another state, Chicago? Ok, here's an old article. Yes, there are two girls in California and one in Chicago in '93 (he lived there then). Of course, this morning his lawyer denied all charges but the police say there's enough evidence.
