Robert Camou Monrovia California man charged with murder of missing girlfriend Amanda Custer after rapping he had killed her with forceful vengeance and cops were called.
Robert Anthony Camou, 27, was indicted on capital murder charges Wednesday — weeks after being arrested in Los Angeles on a warrant related to a previous domestic violence case pertaining to the missing woman.
He had been accused of beating and strangling his girlfriend, Amanda Kathleen Custer, 31, on April 22.
Custer went missing in late July — with authorities now suspecting Camou killing her on July 29 while he was out on bail for the April attack. The woman’s body has yet to have been found.

Camou was observed rapping about Custer on July 30 at an open mic performance by a man named Michael Moore, who spoke to The Los Angeles Times about his disturbing lyrics.
‘At first it was like, did he say that? He said that. And he said it with such force,’ Moore recalled. ‘I think that everyone in the bar that heard him kinda stopped. Time just stopped. And there were some hardcore rappers up in there, and they stopped.’
Performing at an open-mic at the King Eddy saloon in LA, Camou told patrons: ‘I kill my b—h and bury that b—-h in the f–king dirt.’
‘The cops trying to look for me and I’m f–king trying to shut my mouth,’ he added.
KTLA reported that the video being recorded just hours before Camou was taken into custody after blood and ‘evidence of an assault’ was found at his home. Witnesses reported seeing him put Custer’s ‘lifeless’ body in the back of his Prius that same night.
Read a post in which Camou wrote on a web platform, ‘I have high standards of excellence and am a hard working, dedicated individual with a commitment to self-improvement through using my skills to actualize my talents. I love life and am looking forward to the future!’
Camou faces life in prison or death if convicted.
