A California man who was caught on video earlier this month rapping about killing his girlfriend has been charged for doing just that.
Robert Camou, 27, was indicted on capital murder charges Wednesday — weeks after being arrested in downtown Los Angeles on a warrant related to an old domestic violence case.
He had been accused of beating and strangling his girlfriend, Amanda Custer, 31, on April 22.
Custer went missing in late July — with authorities now suspecting that Camou killed her on July 29 while he was out on bail for the April attack. Her body has yet to be found.
Camou was caught on video rapping about Custer on July 30 by a man named Michael Moore, who spoke to local media outlets about his disturbing lyrics.
“At first it was like, did he say that? He said that. And he said it with such force,” Moore recalled. “I think that everyone in the bar that heard him kinda stopped. Time just stopped. And there were some hardcore rappers up in there, and they stopped.” TOP ARTICLES1/5READ MORECarranza doesn’t even get the point of Gifted &Talented programs
Performing at an open-mic at the King Eddy saloon in LA, Camou told patrons: “I kill my b—h and bury that b—-h in the f–king dirt.”
“The cops trying to look for me and I’m f–king trying to shut my mouth,” he added.
Authorities said the video was captured just hours after they arrested Camou and found blood and “evidence of an assault” at his home. Witnesses reported seeing him put Custer’s “lifeless” body in the back of his Prius that same night.
Camou faces life in prison or death if convicted.
