Campbell died of blunt force trauma, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office said in a news release. Garbutt, officials claimed, used a hammer to kill her.

An investigator received a tip Cambell's her remains were inside the wall of a public housing apartment, KTLA reported. Campbell reportedly lived at the location with her friend and Garbutt, who was her friend's boyfriend.
