A woman said she was grateful she and her roommates were alive after police told her a suspected murderer tried to burglarize their home on Easter weekend.
Esther Lau said things could have been much worse for her and her roommates.
"I only imagine what it would've been like if those two guys were not sitting there playing games, and he would've walked into our house looking for him," Lau said.
Lau is talking about Jamon Buggs, the man Newport Beach police say was behind the double murder discovered on Easter Sunday.
Irvine police said Buggs tried to burglarize two homes in Irvine that same weekend - one of them Lau's.
Lau said officers told her the suspect went there looking for a Caucasian man by the name of Jared. Instead, Buggs found Lau's Asian boyfriend.
"His name matches a name that the guy or the suspect was looking for," Lau said. "He looked through this peephole here and just saw that the two guys playing games did not match the guy that he was looking for."
Lau said detectives told her Buggs was after men he believed had a romantic history with a woman from his past.
Eyewitness News spoke with the Jared that Buggs appeared to be in search of. Jared said he was a friend of the woman from the suspect's past. He called Buggs delusional and said the deaths of Wendi Miller and Darren Partch were a tragedy.
