8: Alicia Alexander,

Alicia "Monique" Alexander

Alicia "Monique" Alexander

Alicia “Monique” Alexander, 18, was found September 11, 1988, in an alley in the 1700 block of West 43rd Street & Western Avenue. Cause of death: shot once in the chest. Her nude body was covered with a mattress. Alicia’s father, Porter Alexander said he felt that ‘police initially seemed to drag their heels when it came to investigating [his daughter’s death].’  He said he did not believe his daughter was a prostitute but that she did have a drug problem.

Monique was my sister and my bestfriend a prostitute she was not she liked men and older was her prefrence this guy may have been one that came on to her as a cool cat with some dollars cause she loved to dress n spend money on nice things not knowing he was a killer it could have been me cause we were alike in that way so u cant say she was a whore or prostitute women just love to spend men money im just keeping it real but ladies we must be careful of the one we choose and let god bring him to us. Monique didnt deserve to die just as none of the other women seeing this murder just gives me chills how could you just easlie look at these young ladies and kill them and have a daughter and a wife and sit in court so calm just crazy the mind of the devil we as people with good sence would never understand the devil all we know is he comes to kill steel and destroy so with all said get jesus n stay with him. May her soul Rest in Peace I miss her dearly she was one of a kind very pretty n smart n classy not strung out on drugs if she was she kept her self up always love and miss u sis.

Coral Lynn Petri,,,,,,Yes I wanna know whats up with all the mattresses laying in the city of LA WTF??? And to the people saying (no offense) reason she/they were killed was they were prostitutes.... Since when did that become a crime punishable by "Instant DEATH"? I dont see all these ROTTEN Lousy Men who are "Thieves, Murderous, Rapists, Pedophiles, Embezzlers, Kidnappers & Serial Killers being given Instant DEATH. No the courts spend WAYYYY too much Taxpayer MONEY keeping these Dogs alive to BREED & Produce more Dogshit like "Lonnie David Franklin Jr"

The kills range from mostly young wemon in there 20's but thomas steele was not a woman as you can tell what if he saw the grim sleeper and tried to attack him or stop him. thats probably why he got shot. and he mostly shoots his victims. im guessing that probably back in his younger days he had problems with young wemon or his mother. and it looks like he wasnt raised in a very good home and has emotional scars now and now he is taking his anger out on innocent people. and now that he has ahold of a gun he is now shooting wemon. but i also noticed that they are all afircan americans and he is probably targetting the wemon who looked like his mother and he is killing them while attempting to get rid of the pain. i am scincerly sorry to the familys who are involed in this murder spree even though i am on the other side of the country in the ohio region. please lapd, catch him before he kills more innocent people.

I am shocked because I had not followed the case yet I find out that I do know one of the victims. I know the family of Alicia Alexander. Went to school with her older sister and played ball with her brothers. I know her parents. My heart dropped when I looked at Mr . Alexander on the news yesterday and I'm still crying for many reasons about this. One thing is for sure, it's not to late to pray for the families. And for Mr. Franklin.........lucky LAPD did their job.

Coral Lynn Petri, I wouldn't imagine letting out a chuckle while reading a serial killer website but lol, I was thinking exactly the same thing!

"Monique" (as she was known to her friends) was a friend of mine. I can still recall the day, when we found out she had died... murdered. We were so young. it changes how you see things. This was a "real" situation that happened in my life, and the reality was my friend was dead. The police may portray these women as many things.... but they were all women/human just the same. And no one (especially a 14 & 18 year old) deserve the treatment they received... and to throw their bodies in an alley like trash! Monique wasn't a dope fiend or a prostitute.... to me she was a friend of mine. Someone who "breathed" nd who deserved to live. We all go through things in life, but only God can judge us....

#5 -- a ten-mile radius of the neighborhood where the bodies were found would include a couple million people. South Central LA alone has half a million people.

I guess I misread the first date. But 2 and 3 are more then likely tied together. Maybe he was that girls pimp and knew that she got in the car with the killer. He feared getting caught and followed the guy walked up behind him at a crosswalk of the intersection. I'm guessing there is a crosswalk and shot him in the back of the head. Everything else seems to be on a 3 month scale to a 6 month scale. What are all the other cases that they think are linked. Could it be he was killing on a 3 month time scale... I would also suggest that the killers mom was a crack/coke whore. Just a guess but why would he be targeting women drug users. I think his mom was a drug addict and caught AIDS sharing needles. Then he is taking it out on all women drug users blaming them for her death?

A lot of these girls had substance abuse problems. Was/is GS a dealer? That would be an easy way to get them in his car. Also, the rust-colored Pinto is key. How hard could it be to go back through DMV records and search for a car matching that description in, say, a ten-mile radius of a neighborhood? He started killing when he was fairly young (forget the exact age, but listened to a detective interview, and that was mentioned). He's supposedly in his mid-40s today. So, he may have been driving his parent's car back then. If so, a thorough check of ALL rust-colored Pintos in that area should lead to the guy. I agree the caller with the tip sounded pretty relaxed. Though if he's innocent, it's not surprising that he would not want to get involved. It's possible someone will recognize his voice. I would like to know how it is that he observed this, and managed to get a license plate number, etc. He must have been fairly close.

What caliber gun was used in Janecia Peters killing? It seems like he went dormant after the failed killing and when he resurfaced in early 2000 he didn’t have a gun, resorting to strangulation on a weaker and more vulnerable person (14 year old). By reading all the given facts it’s my guess he was recently released from prison (or in and out of prison) keep in mind the 13 year gap. He was not sentenced in L.A. county. He fled the L.A. area (he felt he failed and ‘Jackie’ would identify him) and was probably arrested in another jurisdiction/county for a violent crime (back then in the 80s, there was no DNA database). Upon his release, he had to have paroled to the only place he knew, HOME. Look for continuing parole violations involving drugs and the parolee eventually in and out of prison so much they finally said time served. This guy is a drug addict/ex-drug addict, he is involved in church and uses that clean cut persona to charm his victims, has trouble interacting sexually with women brought on by insecurities and rejection. He is the quite and smooth type. He obviously feels very confertable in the L.A. area, dumping these women within the dark alleys that he so often rode his bike through when he was a child. He isn’t as slick as everyone thinks and does not go on the prowl but acts more on instinct and urge after a drug induced frenzy. He doesn’t crave the attention but is rather annoyed that he’s on the radar. He will and has changed his MO a bit but he will always slip up due to is instinctive impulses (saliva on breast, semen. etc…). I really would like to know ALOT more about Thomas Steele’s murder. I believe that is the link!!!!!
