ARCADIA Sheriffs Homicide detectives confirmed Tuesday that a body found in a Baldwin Avenue backyard is that of a missing San Gabriel woman.
A search is on for her boyfriend Issac Campbell, of San Gabriel, Sheriffs Homicide detective Joe Sheehy said.
Liya Lu, 31, of San Gabriel was reported missing Aug. 11 after she was dropped off at a Campbells home in San Gabriel, Sheehy said.
Her body was discovered Saturday afternoon in a trash can at a home in the 1700 block of South Baldwin Avenue, in Arcadia.
Sheehy said there is no connection between the discovery and the murder of a woman whose body was found in a trash can floating in Legg Lake in South El Monte in January.
