Grim Sleeper, US based serial killer with links to Belize; more victims?

lonnie Franklin

The Grim Sleeper is the U.S. based serial killer who has caught plenty attention in the U.S. media and has also been featured by News Five. Lonnie Franklin has been arrested for numerous murders dating back to the 1980’s.  Franklin is called the Grim Sleeper because U.S. investigators believed that he went long years in hibernation between murders. The alleged sleep period also showed consistency to the time of the child murders in Belize which were attributed to “Jack”. News Five has followed Franklin’s blood trail because he has roots by marriage to a Belizean woman, Sylvia Castillo.  Since our first story aired, the aunt of one of the local murdered girls said she saw Franklin years ago on Neal Pen Road in Belize City.  The news tonight is that while Franklin is directly tied to over a dozen murders of women including minors, images of one hundred and sixty women were found on Franklin’s property.  According to the following report from KTLA 5, officers are trying to establish if these women are also victims.

During our first inquiry into the sleeper case in July 2010, News Five asked Police Minister Doug Singh and Commissioner of Police Crispin Jeffries to request copies of Franklin’s travel records so it could be seen when he may have visited Belize.  Two weeks ago, we checked with Singh but the information had not been obtained as yet.  And in what may be just another case of coincidence, a van used in the US to dump a murder victim, belonged to a church in Franklin’s neighborhood.  That vehicle was released and eventually wound up in another country.  You guess it, in Belize.

    News followers, use the link below to view pictures that Lonnie Franklin “The Grim Sleeper” had in possession. Maybe in our girls were killed by him, he may have kept pictures.

  6. Jungle Lady says:

    It’s going on 7 months and Police Minister Doug Singh and Commissioner of Police Crispin Jeffries STILL don’t have a copy of Franklin’s travel records??!!

    I find that rather hard to believe……..

    The information was not obtained or they are unwilling to share what they know? And when will someone talk to his wife & her family whom he stayed with when he was in Belize.

    it is sad so many child murders left unsolved. this was 10 years ago. but 2 weeks ago a child’s body was found floating in the river and the Police has come up with NADA, have we done nothing to improve our investigative capabilities in 10 years. what happen to the DNA lab.

  9. The People Had Enough says:

    I !@#$ing knew it; i knew that those young girls were killed by a sick !@#$ born and bread in the great ol USA. I doubted for a split second that it was a Belizean doing that crap. Dough Singh what a damn shame you are; since July 2010 and you still have not got those documents; i mean this country and people in high places…i swear to God Belizeans need to take to the streets and just start tearing these !@#$% form their homes and start burning to mada!@#$%^, this is too much, we have no one in gov. looking out for poor Belizeans.

    Would have never been caught in Belize that’s for sure, coodos for the USA detectives and law, in the US this dog will be either killed or be given life imprisonment.

  11. B grovy says:
