Hosted by

The LA Police Department believes it's broken the case of a serial killer who murdered 11 women in south Los Angeles between 1985 and 2007. On Wednesday, authorities arrested Lonnie David Franklin, Jr, a former LAPD employee. Detectives connected him to the murders using his son's DNA sample, marking the first time a familial DNA test has been used to make a criminal case. Christine Pelisek, crime reporter for the LA Weekly, was the first to report that the infamous "grim sleeper" was still on the loose.
