I don’t know why the cops can’t just beat the whereabouts of the body of Anyssia Escamilla out of Jesus Francisco Avitia Jr. The idea that this miscreant won’t just tell the cops where he put the girls body sickens me. At least have the decency to allow a proper burial.
A discovery that amounted to a false alarm halted yesterday’s search of a Rialto landfill where the body of a pregnant Bloomington girl is believed to have been dumped, Fontana police say.
“As investigators were nearing the end of their search of the Mid-Valley landfill, they located a large piece of skin,” Sgt. Billy Green said this morning of the hunt for 17-year-old Anyssia Escamilla. “After examination by coroner’s staff, the skin was found to be pig skin and completely unrelated to the Escamilla investigation.”
As a result of the delay, the excavation of the dump was not completed. The work is expected to be finished late today. If the search is unsuccessful, investigators will begin digging tomorrow at a Corona landfill.
Escamilla’s former boyfriend pleaded not guilty Tuesday to two counts of murder in the presumed deaths of the teenage mother and her unborn child. Eighteen-year-old Jesus Avitia Jr. is being held on $2 million bail.
The girl disappeared May 11 after attending classes at Bloomington High School. Last Friday, detectives interviewed Avitia and later said that he admitted killing the girl and throwing her body in a trash can.
Authorities have closed landfills in Rialto and Corona pending completion of the search. Investigators have not disclosed a motive in the case. However, the girl’s relatives have said that Avitia’s family did not approve of him dating someone who had young children.
