Japanese Student Murdered in LA

A young Japanese woman studying English in Pasadena was stabbed to death on Saturday at her home in the Los Angeles suburb of San Gabriel. 22-year old Eimi Yamada was found dead by police responding to a prowler call in her neighborhood about 2am. They arrested her boyfriend, George Wood Pigman IV (23), whom they found naked with blood on his body and running around on a neighbor's roof, and are holding him on $1 million bail. Yamada, from Saitama Prefecture, was found with multiple stab wounds and signs that she had been beaten. She had been studying in Pasadena for about six months. According to neighbors, Pigman was often seen skateboarding in the area and the couple often argued.
