David Lam on the lam no more.

amw-davidlam.jpgA couple of years ago, I heard a disturbing story via the grapevine of some friends who gambled at The Bike. One day, one of the floor managers didn’t show up work. A few days later, the rumor was that his wife’s body was found partially buried in the backyard. It sounded like one of those crazy casino stories that sounded too sketchy to be true.

It turns out the story was mostly based in fact. The floor manager’s name was David Lam and he had fled the country after he (presumably) strangled his wife and buried her in their Rowland Heights backyard back in 2005.

Lam had been on the run for two years until authorities found him in Indonesia in November. He was arrested Nov. 17, 2007 and is now being held held at the Twin Towers Correctional Facility in Los Angeles.

In the two years that Lam had been missing, he was also featured on America’s Most Wanted: AMW CAPTURE DATA FILE FOR DAVID LAM

I was going to say something like “It’s a good thing Asians usually aren’t on America’s Most Wanted” but that sounds contrived.

The full story is available at the Whittier Daily News.

About jozjozjoz

jozjozjoz is a taiwanese-american gal who lives and blogs underneath the hollywood sign and who doesn’t clean her fishtank unless the fish starts to do the backstroke. she is also able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but cannot stop from bumping into door handles, cabinet doors, and anything else that protrudes or has a sharp edge. she does not run with scissors for this same reason. she can pet the fur off a dog but don’t ask her to go anywhere near a horse. or a moth. or a roach. her dealings with L.A.’s finest (aka the parking violations department) are legend, as are her giant sneezes. Other than the two too many joz’s, jozjozjoz is a perfectly normal, relatively sane individual who defies the odds, reaches for the stars, and carries moonbeams home in a jar. She’d rather be a fish… but not in her own dirty fishtank. http://www.jozjozjoz.com
