OMG, the “Grim Sleeper” serial killer may have been caught, thanks to his son’s criminal activities and a slice of pizza.For 25 years police were baffled by the “Grim Sleeper” murderer who earned his nickname after taking a 14 year break from killing before re-emerging once again in 2002. However, when Lonnie David Franklin Jr’s son was arrested and his DNA placed in a state data bank, police were shocked to discover a genetic link to material found on the “Grim Sleeper ” victims and the son. The DNA was so close police suspected someone in his immediate family was the serial killer.Their hunch was Lonnie David Franklin Jr, daddy dearest. So anywho, undercover cops, disguised as waiters, staked out Franklin Jr’s favorite restaurant collecting his cutlery, napkins , glasses and pizza crust to gather DNA. Oh yes, it was a match. Lonnie David Franklin Jr is now facing 10 counts of murder.
Psst This is the first time that familial DNA has ever been used to solve a major case and they are hoping it will hold up to scrutiny in court.
