Family Members of Alleged ‘Grim Sleeper’ Serial Killer Share Their Pain and Hope for Justice

Donnell Alexander made the drive from South Los Angeles to the criminal courts building in Downtown Los Angeles every day.

On trial was Grim Sleeper serial killer Lonnie Franklin Jr., accused in the murder of 10 women, including Alexander’s sister Monique, and the attempted murder of another.

SERIAL THRILLER Continues on Investigation Discovery This Saturday with ‘The Head Hunter’! (Video Preview)

SERIAL THRILLER, the Investigation Discovery (ID) hit scripted mini-series that fans gave a thumbs-up to recently, is returning for the third–and final planned–installment this weekend. “The Head Hunter” is based on a true story, where a California seaside town finds itself terrified by a series of missing college students and hitchhikers.

Initially, when the town is hit with this rash of disappearances, the unexplained mystery is just that: a frustrating mystery. But, as ocean begins washing up human remains, and the hills prove to be another grotesque dumping ground, detectives suddenly find themselves under the hot heat of the the media spotlight as the area becomes the newly crowned “murder capitol,” and they desperately begin following leads, frantically attempting to restore peace once again.
