Tales of the Grim Sleeper

Tales of the Grim Sleeper

Directed by Nick Broomfield

Lonnie Franklin Jr. was arrested in July 2010 after a 25 year killing spree in which it is thought he could have killed over 100 victims, potentially making him the most prolific serial killer in history. Significantly, his arrest was not the product of painstaking detective work but completely accidental, the result of a computer DNA match that linked him to a possible 20 victims.

Sad state of affairs right there. SMH Glad he's off the streets now. So much to say, but I won't. But the documentary is a winner among documentaries. Why does it seem like these type of stories about America's poorest communities of various ethnicities are usually told by journalists from "across the pond?"
