Tuesday, 25 years after the Grim Sleeper serial killer took his first victim, Bethel AME Church in Los Angeles set up a memorial along Western Avenue. It included photographs of ten victims and space for the public to write messages to the deceased.

Among the mourners was Chris McNair, a 52-year-old contractor from Los Angeles. He knew Lonnie David Franklin, Jr., the accused killer … and one of his alleged victims. McNair talked with KPCC’s Brian Watt.
