For over 20 years, from the 1980s to the early 2000s, a serial killer stalked the streets of Los Angeles targeting black women in or around the South Central area. When local man Lonnie David Franklin Jr. was arrested, residents couldn’t believe that their helpful neighbor was responsible for the killings. More shocking were the hoards of photos that police discovered upon searching Franklin’s home. There were over 1,000 pictures and multiple videos of girls and women, some who looked to be incapacitated or dead and others who were nude. Some of the women in the photos were found to be alive and claimed that Franklin never hurt them. Investigators learned that many women were deceased, victims of Franklin’s decades-long killing spree. Thirty-five of those women still have yet to be identified and police have released photos of these women hoping that the public can help identify them.

The last time Anita was seen was on November 17, 1998. She was spotted around the 6000 block of Brynhurst Avenue in Los Angeles on that date but has never been seen or heard from again.
Although Anita hasn’t formally been named as one of Franklin’s victims, many believe that she could have crossed his paths with the serial killer. However, Anita Yolanda Parker’s case still remains unsolved while investigators, family, and friends still search for answers.

When she didn’t show up at her sister’s home, her loved ones grew concerned.
Her life may have been unconventional, but the routine seemed to have worked for Beatrice Green. The 38-year-old has been described as a drifter, often falling out of contact with her family for weeks at a time. However, Beatrice would always eventually contact someone to let them know that she was safe, and each month, she was known to visit her sister’s home. Beatrice’s welfare checks were sent there monthly, so she would make sure to stop by and pick up her mail. (more…)
