c1maingrimsleeperLos Angeles, May 6, (THAINDIAN NEWS) The billboards in Los Angeles have been pasted with new sketches of an unidentified person, who, according to the police is the infamous Grim Sleeper. He is a serial killer who has murdered 11 women since 1985. The efforts to track him down have not met with success so far. The LAPD staffs believe that the new initiative might provide them with some much need clue. The police department has received several calls ever since the new sketches have been put up. However, they have not got any solid clue that can lead them to the suspected killer. Interestingly, the so called grim killer targeted black women, some of whom were prostitutes.

Surprisingly the cops have been able to trace the DNA of the unknown killer as well as his fingerprint. However, they still have not managed to arrest the person so far. The crimes were committed in various neighborhoods and this made the task of the cops even more difficult. The killer is quite intelligent and he has managed to give the cops a slip every time. The Los Angeles City Council has announced an award of $500,000 to the person who can catch the killer.

As per the assumption of LAPD the killer is a black man aged between 45 and 60. He reportedly has grey or black hair. A woman who escaped the attack of the killer in 1988 gave a description of his physique and this made drawing the sketches a bit easier. The task is not an easy one as the cops involved with the murder cases admit quite candidly.
