A new look for the Grim Sleeper

This from LA Weekly writer Christine Pelisek:

The Los Angeles Police Department released today an age-enhanced composite sketch of the Grim Sleeper, a serial killer who has been murdering mostly women in South Los Angeles since 1985.


Homicide detectives are hoping the release of the sketch drawn by an artist who works with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children will trigger the identification of the elusive killer dubbed by the LA Weekly as the Grim Sleeper. 

“They find kids all the time” using sketches, said lead homicide detective Dennis Kilcoyne. “They have had a lot of success with it.” 

The three sketches are slightly different. Kilcoyne said they wanted the public to have choices because they don’t know what the killer has been doing for the last 22 years. He could be employed and married with children or living on the street. They just don’t know.
