A story for every victim

Elandra Bunn, 33

Elandra Bunn, 33, a mother, was found on Turner's stalking ground along the Figueroa corridor in South Los Angeles in 1987 by an 11-year-boy. Alvin McThomas told of finding Bunn in an alley, left naked in trash.

Lisa Scheinin, deputy county medical examiner, testified at Turner's trial in 2007 that the autopsy showed that Bunn had suffered two battered and bloody eyes, abrasions and lacerations on her head, bruises on her neck as she was strangled and bruises and lacerations over her legs and torso.

She said Turner wrenched the victim's neck, probably by violently shaking her head back and forth as he raped and strangled her.
