All has been quiet for the past month in the media regarding LA's current, but long-lasting (since 1985), serial killer, the Grim Sleeper. But not for long as America's Most Wanted will air an episode tomorrow night with the Grim Sleeper as the "featured fugitive." He's killed at least 11 people since 1985 and most recently in 2007, but one who woman escaped will be interviewed on the program along with LAPD Chief William Bratton.
