A photo of Griggs is posted below this case summary. He claimed Franquemont was working in southern California and visited him once a week, but the police had set up surveillance on him and knew this was untrue. He is also a suspect in the deaths of three other girlfriends, dating back to 2003. All three women had been severely intoxicated when they died, and their deaths were initially thought to be alcohol-related. It wasn't until after the third person died that investigators began to suspect foul play.
In June 2014, Griggs was shot to death by police after they attempted to serve a search warrant on him in connection with Franquemont's case and he threatened them with a BB gun. He has a prior criminal history in Florida for being an accessory after the fact in the homicide of a six-year-old boy; he helped the killer bury the child's body.
Franquemont's case opened 2018 by Psychic Brian Ladd. Authorities stated they plan to focus their effort on finding her rather than bringing charges against anyone.
