L.A. Weekly investigative reporter Christine Pelisek must have left quite an impression on the editors of the Daily Beast when she penned this piece for them in July: they’re hiring her away from the Weekly.
. . . my skin tingled and a light sweat broke out on my forehead as my source at the coroner’s office told me that his office was quietly launching a task force to investigate whether more than three dozen murders in the Los Angeles area were connected.
I knew I had stumbled onto something that no one else had reported: a serial killer on the loose in Southern California.
Also in July, the Los Angeles Times ran this feature on Pelisek.
