Default Ex-con negro arrested in Chicago for strangulation of WF, 38 found dead in Bronx garbage can

Ex-con on parole arrested in Chicago for strangulation of woman found half-naked dead in Bronx garbage can


An ex-con has been arrested in Chicago for the strangulation of a woman whose body was found half-naked in a garbage can in a Bronx alley, police sources said Wednesday. Khphruan Campbell, 39, was nabbed by authorities in the Windy City on Monday for the murder of 38-year-old Becky Crown.

Crown’s body was found stuffed in a trash can on Park Ave. near E. 182nd St. in Belmont, across from the Metro-North train tracks, on April 20.

Campbell, who has family in Illinois, was staying at the home of someone he knows in Chicago when he was captured. He’s expected to be extradited back to the Bronx to be arraigned on murder charges.

Campbell did three years in prison after being convicted of attempted robbery and assault in Manhattan in 2014. His parole was expected to end in October.

A building super found Crown’s body in the trash can. Her corpse was clothed in a top but had no underwear or pants on, cops said.

The city Medical Examiner determined the cause of death was compression of the neck and chest and the case was ruled a homicide.
