A Rowland Heights man accused of killing his wife and burying her in his backyard in 2005 pleaded not guilty to murder Thursday after being apprehended last month in Indonesia, authorities said. Police allege that David Lam, 55, strangled his wife, Susan, 51, with a necktie after the couple argued about his gambling debt and that he then fled the country. Lam was arraigned in West Covina and is being held at the Twin Towers jail in downtown Los Angeles in lieu of $1 million bail.
Since 1996 Jeffrey Hunter has been retailing and designing neckties. Prior to his involvement in men's neckties he was a professional photographer shooting landscapes in Iceland, the US South West, India, New York City, Miami Beach, the Albuquerque Hot Air Balloon Fiesta, and the 92 America's Cup.
He started selling ties in Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego to car salesmen out of the trunk of 1966 Lincoln Continental and by appointment to stock brokerage firms. From 1997 to 2000 he operated two specialty retail kiosks selling ties in the Irvine Spectrum Center and Newport Beach Fashion Island. From the summer 2000 he has built web sites that offer novelty collector ties by Marvel Comics Spiderman, Disney and wildlife ties by Endangered Species. Included are really unique silk fashion ties by Electric Neckwear, and Martin Wong.
