LAPD Launches Facebook and Twitter Page NR12480vh

Los Angeles: On October 18, 2012, the Los Angeles Police Department will post 42 photos of women that were recovered while in possession of a serial murder suspect, dubbed in the media as the “Grim Sleeper.”

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.   If anyone recognizes any of the women in the photographs, Facebook or Twitter may be used to make a positive identification.
