    CA - Nancy Hammour, 28, found murdered, Newport Beach, 2 Sept 2013

    Tina Hoang was found this past March, 2013.

    Now another female has been found just miles south of where Tina was found. Her death is considered suspicious.

    I'm very worried this could be a copycat of the green river killer or LISK beginning...

    Tina was found next to tower 71, the same number of victims the green river killer is rumored to have slain!

    After finding she was next to tower 71, my first thought was "green river killer".

    Now that another girl is found not far away with a similar background as an escort, I'm afraid my fears might be correct...

    Ugh, I think you're right. I hope word gets around so the girls can be more careful. This doesn't sound good at all.

    Oh no. Nancy died of a gunshot wound!

    Someone on Tina's thread mentioned that there was a report of the noise of a gunshot in Newport beach the night Tina Died. I wonder if there's a connection?

    both nancy and tina found face down in sand, both had a child in the months before they were killed(probably their link), both with prostitution history---seems like a potential mission-oriented serial brewing, maybe works in/or vendor for a state hospital..?

    The 55 is equidistance between where the bodies were found. Also the hospital represented by the purple dot, next to Pacific Coast Highway and and the 55, is equidistance between the two scenes. Tina's scene is represented by the orange dot. Nancy's scene is represented by the blue.

    PCH runs along both crime scenes so I made an IGIS of that route.

    Here is Nancy's alleged murderer. I believe he has been arraigned. He has a 1 million bail.




    Jaime Prieto Rocha

    "UPDATE NO. 5, SEPT. 9, 12:56 P.M.: Newport Beach Police, while still not filling in many holes surrounding the shooting death of Nancy Hammour, have announced Jaime Prieto Rocha, 40, of Santa Ana, has been arrested for her murder.
    Rocha has been held in lieu of $1 million bail since detectives arrested him Friday, according to police, who add, "This is an ongoing investigation and no further information is being released at this time."

    Orange County Jail records have Rocha's occupation listed as forklift operator.

    UPDATE NO. 6, SEPT. 10, 11:38 A.M.: Jaime Prieto Rocha is scheduled to be arraigned today in Santa Ana on one felony count of murder, according to the Orange County District Attorney's office.

    Currently held in lieu of $1 million bail, the Santa Ana man faces a maximum sentence of 25 years to life in state prison if convicted, prosecutors add."

    Irvin Tellez Allegedly Shot Nancy Hammour Twice in Face in Car, But Driver Jaime Prieto Rocha is Also Charged with Her Murder

    A prosecution statement on an arraignment hearing scheduled today indicates Irvin Tellez was in a car driven by Jaime Prieto Rocha and carrying Nancy Hammour in the backseat when Tellez allegedly shot a woman waiting at a Santa Ana curb in the face before turning his 9mm firearm on Hammour, who was shot twice in the face, died and had her body dumped under a Newport Beach bridge.

    A court hearing provided new details of the killing of Nancy Hammour, a 28-year-old woman whose body was found under a bridge in Newport Beach. The prosecutor said Irvin Tellez killed Hammour as the two rode in a car because she started screaming after seeing him shoot a woman in the face...

    Hammour, who was in the backseat, was “freaking out” as they drove, and within blocks, Tellez turned around and shot her in the face, Mendelson said. Hammour fell to the floorboard and lay gurgling, according to police and prosecutors. After telling her to shut up, Tellez said, “Just die, Nancy, just die” and fired again, killing her, Mendelson said.

    From October:

    http://www.latimes.com/socal/daily-p...030-story.html

    A man who admitted that he helped dump a woman's body in Newport Beach after she was murdered for witnessing a gang-related shooting was sentenced to 16 years in prison Friday...

    Rocha admitted that he helped dispose of Hammour's body and agreed to testify against Tellez, Mendelson said. In exchange, prosecutors reduced a murder charge against Rocha to involuntary manslaughter, with a sentencing enhancement for gang activity.
    From November:

    http://www.ocregister.com/articles/t...n-hammour.html

    A gang member who shot two women, leaving one dead and another permanently injured, was sentenced Friday to 102 years to life in prison.

    Irvin Tellez, 27, was convicted of first-degree murder for the 2013 killing of Nancy Hammour, as well as the attempted murder of another woman.
