Los Angeles County detectives try to ID human remains found in apartment wall

LOMITA, Calif. (AP) – Los Angeles County authorities are trying to determine whether human remains found walled up inside a Lomita apartment are those of a woman who vanished in 2009.

Sheriff’s officials confirmed Thursday that the remains found a day earlier at the apartment are human.

An anonymous tip last week led them to the unit and cadaver dogs alerted during a search. The remains were removed on Thursday.

There’s no immediate word on the cause of death.

Thirty-two-year-old Raven Campbell once lived in the apartment but vanished in 2009, leaving behind her purse.

The current occupants of the apartment have been temporarily relocated.
