Police and victims of families of the Grim Sleeper serial killer had a feeling he lived in the neighborhood. Today the suspect, 57-year-old Lonnie David Franklin Jr., was arrested at his home on 81st Street in Manchester Square, a South L.A. neighborhood.

His home is relatively close to his 3rd, 6th and 9th victims. A little further out were more victims and a billboard that educated the community about the killer and a reward for tips leading to his capture.
