California: Tyanie Ly found dead in a dumpster, boyfriend Amer Alhasan arrested fleeing the country for Jordan

Authorities confirm that Amer Alhasan, 28, of Anaheim, California, planned to board a flight to Jordan via Germany.

Alhasan had already checked in for his flight and had a “significant amount of personal belongings” on him when he was arrested.

“If we were about three hours later, he would have been out of the country,” Anaheim Police Sergeant Daron Wyatt said during a press conference.

Alhasan is the lone suspect in the murder of Tyanie Ly, 38, his girlfriend found stuffed in the dumpster at South Balboa Plaza on October 30. The body was found by a man who was riffling through garbage to look for recycling, reports Fox 11.

Police confirmed via social media that the body had not been dismembered, but Wyatt told reporters it had been placed into “some type of a luggage, either a suitcase or duffel bag.”

Anaheim Police Chief Jorge Cisneros explained that Homeland Security officials and Customs and Border Protection assisted in tracking and arresting the suspect.

Detectives have not released further details on Ly’s suspected cause of death, although police believe she may have been murdered in another location several hours before being dumped in the alleyway, Fox 11 reports.

Although investigators have collected a good amount of evidence, “nothing of forensic nature led to his arrest” because “unlike on television, it takes a while to get results back,” Wyatt said.

“We have reports that he may have committed a sexual assault in Jordan and fled that country to come back to the United States recently,” Wyatt said. “There is a prior crime in California he was arrested for, but not charged.

“We’re asking for anybody else who may have been in a dating relationship with him in the past to call us,” he said. “There are likely prior events of domestic violence or sexual assault.”

Alhasan is expected to be formally charged with first-degree murder by the Orange County District Attorney. He is currently being held on $5 million bail.

Ly’s family has set up a GoFundMe campaign to help raise money for her children and memorial service.
