(LOS ANGELES) -- The Los Angeles Police Department has tentatively indentified five of the dozens of women found in photos discovered on the "Grim Sleeper" serial killer's property.
L.A. Police Homicide Detective Dennis Kilcoyne said he could not comment on the names of the women or if they were dead or alive.
He said the L.A.P.D. would not remove any images from their websites until detectives can varify who the individuals are without a doubt.
Kilcoyne said his department and various area police websites have received over 8 million hits since the photos were made public on Thursday and the department has received hundreds of phone calls.
L.A. police released 180 new images of unidentified women. All of the photos were found on the property of the suspected "Grim Sleeper" serial killer, Lonnie David Franklin Jr., and police say they hope people will recognize the faces and contact investigators.
Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck said in a press conference Thursday that investigators are asking the public to help identify the 160 women in the photos to determine whether they are still alive.
