Breakfast reading from the Voice Media Empire: Bartmess, who was bipolar and used meth to self-medicate, was horrifically abused by five people — three men, two women. One of the latter posted on Facebook, “I fucking hate my life,” and when she was sentenced for her role in the heinous crimes, it didn’t get any better. Westword has the story.
It started early on the morning of April 3.
The victim was waiting for a ride, possibly an Uber, at Vermont and Eighth streets in Koreatown, police said. A suspect happened to pull up in a dark SUV, asking if she was the one who had hailed him, they said.
With the woman in the vehicle, he drove a half-mile or so east, toward downtown, ultimately parking in the 1300 block of Ingraham Street in the Westlake district, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
