I thought it would be interesting to visit the LAPD’s website to see how many images had been removed from the Grim Sleeper photos, presumably because the women were identified.
I discovered that Nos. 164, 165, 169 and 175 varied from what is on The Times’ site. Most of the Grim Sleeper photos on latimes.com are the same as what’s posted by the LAPD, but I’m told that these four photos were cropped by The Times to show the women’s faces in greater clarity.
One new bit of information from the uncropped photos is that three of them are dated March 1985.
Of the 180 photos that were originally released by investigators, 151 remain on the LAPD’s website.
