Confession in Murder of Heights Resident

A Filipino man has confessed to the murder of Peace Corps volunteer and Brooklyn Heights resident Julia Campbell, the Associated Press reports (WCBS-TV video).

In a shocking development, the circumstances surrounding the killing are more senseless and absurd than anyone could have anticipated. The killer, Juan Duntugan, told Filipino TV that Campbell bumped into him and he burst out into an explosive rage and killed her. He admitted that his sudden burst of violence — which included striking Campbell multiple times on the head with a rock — was misdirected at the 40 year old Heights resident, as he was angry over a recent dispute with his neighbor.
