    Default Whoa, girl was dumped, left for dead, at Turnbull early this morning...

    I'm surprised no one has posted this yet... my mom just called me and told me about (she said when she heard about a 20 something girl found in ditch at Turnbull her stomach dropped worried that it was me, lol). Anyone ride there this afternoon and see the cops? Thank goodness she lived through it so she could name her attackers...

    Anyway here is the story:
    http://www.whittierdailynews.com/news/ci_12990263




    WHITTIER - Arlene Boatright woke up to frantic banging about 3:30 a.m. Tuesday.

    The 90-year-old opened her back door to a young woman with a black shirt wrapped tightly around her throat, sticks and brambles in her long hair and an abrasion to her upper shoulder. She wore only a red bra, shorts and one slipper sock.

    The stranger said she'd been stabbed and asked Boatright to call police. She mentioned three men as the suspects.

    "She said, `I thought they were my friends," Boatright said.

    Whittier police said three El Monte men now in custody allegedly tied up and beat the 20-year-old Bellflower woman who was their passenger. She was later untied and forced out of the car. Police said one of the men then slit her throat and dumped her down the side of Turnbull Canyon Road.

    They left her for dead. But she managed to climb up a steep grade and seek help in the 6000 block of Altmark Avenue.

    Officer Jason Zuhlke said the woman was able to tell detectives what happened, give names and a partial license plate of a green 1994 Mitsubishi Eclipse to investigators before she was taken to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center. She underwent surgery and is in critical condition.

    The woman, identified by police as Christine Martinez, 20, of Bellflower, sustained a 4-inch laceration across her neck and numerous abrasions and head contusions.

    An officer later checking the area for evidence saw the Mitsubishi pass by and pulled it over. Zuhlke said the car contained a rope, a shovel and their three suspects.

    Vincent Mendoza, 21, Edward Meraz, 24, and Jose Ayala, 27, were booked on suspicion of attempted murder and kidnapping.

    They were being held at Whittier Jail in lieu of $1 million bail each.

    Investigators still don't know the motive behind the attack or if any of the suspects are gang members.

    On Tuesday afternoon, police temporarily blocked off part of Turnbull Canyon Road as they searched for additional evidence. They found a backpack.

    The incident started Monday night. The woman told police she met friends in Bellflower and got into the Mitsubishi to head to the beach.
    They made a stop in El Monte.

    "They apparently stopped there to pick up a girlfriend of one of the guys. But that didn't happen," Zuhlke said.
    They headed next to Whittier where the woman was attacked and dumped.

    Boatright's backyard looks 60 to 80 feet down Turnbull Canyon Road. She thinks the victim climbed up the hill and may have been drawn to the light coming from her kitchen area.

    The longtime resident who just recovered from a cracked ankle said she is usually a sound sleeper.

    "She was just hammering at the door. I said, `Who's there?' She said, `I need to call police, I just got stabbed,"' Boatright said.

    Boatright asked her unexpected visitor where she came from and was told, "from the canyon."
    "I think the good Lord was looking out for her," Boatright said.

    Another Altmark Avenue resident who declined to give his name was surprised at the news.

    "It's a quiet area here. Normally when something happens, the neighbors know," he said. "I hope she (the victim) does all right."

    I just hope she lives. She's got to be a pretty tough girl to go through ALL that (getting tied up, beat up, stabbed, AND dumped down a canyon) and then have the clarity of mind to tie the wound with her shirt, hike up, and go for help. That would take a lot of resolve. And thank goodness they already have the guys in custody. I hope they go away a very very long time.

    Another sad story, but hardly surprising (to me at least). It's a stark reminder of the low-lifes in human form who fester among us.

    Hopefully the victim will heal thoroughly -both physically and mentally- and the scumbags responsible will have many years in prison.

    damn, a handful of us were there yesterday evening and I was talking to my mom afterwards about how back in the day bodies used to be dumped there as well as a couple other off the wall stories of this place.

    F'ed up story for sure but good ending so far.

    i watched the green eclipse get towed away at about 5:30 around the turn from the Beverly TH.

    One can only hope that all the stereotypical bad shit happens to those idiots while in jail/prison.

    yup.. CH34, CH9, & Ch4 vans were getting footage as late as 9pm. I was told the girl had surgery today and is in intensive care by a CH4 camera guy. Hope she makes a full & fast recovery. I'm glad they caught those sorry FUX so quickly

    Wow what a tough girl. Not gender biased at all; it would be tough for anyone in that situation to keep sane after theyve had their throat slit and kicked off the side of the road at night.

    I have faith she'll turn out all right. If she can survive that, she could do anything she puts her mind to.

    We were riding there last night & saw the News crews 2 & 4 but didn't know what was going on but didn't see anything on the late news last night. We ride there at least once a week. Thanks for the info. Just another reminder to know who you are with and what is going on around you.

    Speechless. Healing vibes for that girl. Can't imagine what she's going through physically and emotionally.
