After the LA Weekly printed their in-depth investigation of the Grim Sleeper, a serial killer named by the paper because he stopped killing for 13 years (but now is back), the LA City Council voted today to award $200,000 (KCAL says $500K) to anyone who supplies information leading to his arrest and conviction. "In a packed press conference not far from City Council chambers this morning, Councilman Bernard Parks called for the huge reward. He was joined by Porter and Mary Alexander, parents of 18-year-old victim Monique Alexander."
