If she had had an aneurysm, bagging the body and storing it in kitty litter is the second option behind dialing 911. Right. Smooth, Duffy. Why not the old 'she committed suicide and begged Campbell help her hide it from her family' ploy?

I shouldn't give you any ideas.

So what is the problem with this? Mr. Campbell found out the hard way that race-mixing doesn't pay off. He should have confined him self to White women.
The trash bin was a good idea though; very appropriate for a dead snakehead.
Isaac Campbell is of mixed race himself. Child of a caucasian mother and african american father.

You are so ignorant you racist S.O.B. Maybe someone should put you're ignorant racist ass in a trash can, i'm sure no one would care/mind, and it would definately make the world a better place to have one less ignorant bigot.

Alhambra man to stand trial in murder of girlfriend stuffed in trash can

From the Pasadena Star-News:
ALHAMBRA - An Alhambra man accused of killing his girlfriend, stuffing her body in a trash can and then leaving it in the garage of an acquaintance will be tried on murder charges, a judge ruled Wednesday.
Alhambra Superior Court Judge Alice Hill found "sufficient cause" to hold Isaac Campbell, 34, to answer to one count of murder and set an arraignment for May 7. Campbell, in custody on $1,025,000 bail, is charged in the death of

Liya "Jessie" Lu, 31, of San Gabriel.

"I think that the circumstantial evidence is sufficient to suggest Mr. Campbell in fact murdered Ms. Lu," Hill said. Witnesses testified that Lu went missing Aug. 11, 2007, after she was dropped off at Campbell's apartment in Alhambra. Her body was found more than a month later by Arcadia resident Michael Darby, in Darby's garage.
Campbell was Darby's marijuana dealer for years, Darby testified Wednesday, and approached Darby in August 2007 and arranged to store a trash can in his garage.
"He just said he had some problems with storage and would like to know if he could store something in my garage," Darby said.
About a month later, Darby said he learned that Lu had gone missing and rushed home to open the trash can after work. The blue recycling bin had been covered in black tarp and taped shut. After removing both, Darby testified, he opened the container to find a woman's clothes on top and a pile of kitty litter underneath.
"There was a bag in there. At this time I was pretty upset. I opened up the bag a little bit and smelled death," he said.
The combination of wrapping the body in a bag, pouring on kitty litter and the low humidity of California's summers effectively "mummified" Lu's body, said Pedro Ortiz, deputy medical examiner with the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office.
"The skin was brownish-green ... it showed signs of decomposition, especially in the orifices of the body - the eyes, mouth, et cetera," Ortiz testified.

I actually knew them both. I was shocked to hear what happenned and the crime Isaac is accused of committing. If you knew him it doesnt fit at all, and I can't imagine what events could have led him to behave the way he did. It's all very strange and very mnuch out of character.
Liya was a very sweet girl, RIP Jesse.

I've known Isaac for years too & never seen him lose his temper. I suspect, there's more to this than some people think. I don't believe for a minute that the people involved (supoena'd witnesses) knew nothing of what was in that can! Isaac himself didn't own a vehicle capable of hauling that trash can. I helped Mike pull it outs the garage & it must've weighed 300 lbs! Never would've fit in his little Corrola! Who had a truck & helped him?

I met Isaac 19 years ago , when he lived in Baldwin Park, sorry to say but this didn't surprise me at all. He was a very jealous man, into martial arts, watched tons of Bruce Lee movies, had weapons & guns, and smoked weed to keep his cool. He was very fit, and loved to show off how much he could lift. I never felt conformable being alone with him, I always felt that something else was going on in his head.

BTW,TC WOLF!!! yes he did have a 4 door Corrola, and I am sorry but anyone can fit a trash can in that kind of car. I know I can squeeze one in my 2 door Honda. The girl was Asian, she may of weight 120lb, if that. Put the body in the trunk and the trash can in the back seat, then drive to the garage and unload...
