    Temecula Crime News: Singer Elizabeth “Bipsy” Amirian murdered at Temecula Mall by boyfriend



    From: http://www.FullValueReview.com



    Temecula, California - According to police, on Thursday, February 12, 2009, at about 1:08 pm, a sergeant from the Temecula Police

    Department was on patrol at the Promenade Mall. The sergeant observed a

    Toyota mini van parked in the 3rd level of the East Parking Structure.

    He observed an assault within the mini van where a male adult was

    stabbing a female.




    The officer called for back up and immediately ordered the suspect

    out of the vehicle. The suspect did not comply with the orders. A

    back-up patrol car arrived and the assisting officer began to break out

    the rear window to the mini van. The suspect did not comply with the

    commands given. Officers deployed their taser and the suspect was taken

    into custody without further incident.




    The officers rendered first aid and called for medical assistance

    from the fire department. The female, later identified as 27 year old

    Elizabeth ‘Bipsy’ Amirian of Temecula, died at the scene. The suspect

    in this homicide has been identified as Mickey David

    Beauchamp Wagstaff, a White male adult, 25 years of Pala, California.

    Mr Wagstaff was taken to a local hospital after his arrest for

    unspecified injuries.




    Investigators from the Temecula Police Department and Investigators

    from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Central Homicide Unit

    arrived and assumed the crime scene. ABC 7 reported from the scene live

    and according to CBS 2, the suspect was transported to Rancho Springs

    Medical Center in Murrieta. Investigators believe this incident is

    domestic violence related.




    Bipsy was known by many in the local Temecula Valley Music and Arts

    Scene, and had performed at many popular events like the City of

    Temecula’s Harveston music series in August and the Temecula Music Fest

    in May. She played many times at the old Java Joz Open Mic Night,

    joining in on jam sessions with her trademark ‘mouth trumpet’ and

    amazing vocals. She also worked there at Java Joz many late nights

    making mochas before it closed.


    Bipsy was in the process of working on a CD, having spoke to her

    recently at a coffee shop, she had told me that she looked forward to

    performing again. She was an enormous talent as seen in the videos

    above. As we get more information about this crime and her services, we

    will post updates. Anyone with information about this incident is

    encouraged to call the Temecula Police Department at 951-696-3300.
