He committed necrophilic acts on at least one of the victims body. In 2009, a routine search of a national DNA databank of convicted felons linked Fayne to an additional victim, a mother of three. Her head had been smashed in with chunks of concrete and her body was raped. A study from Radford University states he had an IQ of 68. In 1994, Lorenzo Fayne was sentenced to life in prison without parole at the Menard Correctional Center in Chester, Illinois. In 2003, Fayne's life, along with others on Illinois' death row, was saved when Governor George Ryan commuted remaining death sentences.
