VIDEO: Monrovia kidnapping suspect raps about killing, burying woman

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Warning: The video contains graphic language that may not be suitable for some audiences.

A man suspected in a Monrovia woman's kidnapping appears to mention killing and burying a woman while rapping at a downtown Los Angeles bar, new video shows.

In the footage, Robert Anthony Camou raps about being on the news, killing a woman and burying her in the dirt before someone takes his microphone away.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department says Amanda Kathleen Custer, 31, was kidnapped Monday in the back of a gray Prius sedan, with California license place 8AOR167, in the 600 block of Vaquero Road, Monrovia.

Homicide investigators are looking into the video that was taken later that day, the day before Camou was arrested after a four-hour standoff with police.

Video shows the 27-year-old dancing at the bar during an open mic night, attempting to grab the microphone from the host.

Michael Moore, the man who shot the video, tells Eyewitness News that Camou was saying things about a woman he buried in the dirt.

"I killed my b**** and buried that b**** in the f****** dirt," he says while staring into the camera.

Now, investigators are trying to determine if what Camou said in the video could have anything to do with Custer's disappearance.

"We are very concerned for her well-being. We're asking her, if she's OK, to please contact any law-enforcement officer," said Lt. Scott Hoglund of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Homicide Bureau at a Tuesday press conference.

Authorities said Custer and Camou had been in a tumultuous dating relationship over the last two years, one marked by multiple allegations of domestic violence.

A restraining order filed by Custer in February included details of Camou's alleged obsessive behavior.

"He has made over 100 (phone) numbers to verbally bash me," Custer said in a court document at the time. She went on to describe an uninvited visit to her home by Camou: "He turned around, came running at my window, and broke my double-pane window with the hatchet."

Camou remains in police custody without bail on unrelated burglary and domestic violence charges.

A vigil was held Wednesday night for Custer.

"We're just asking all of the community, when you're out there, you're hiking, you're doing things, keep your eyes open," said Monrovia resident Carmen Martinez. "We're looking for a miracle."
