KTVU (Ch. 2) interviewed the Richmond woman who recently stumbled upon a gruesome discovery in her garbage bin that included key evidence in the high-profile murder of a UCSF dental student.
“The blood was frightening, ” Elizabeth Duke told KTVU at her Panama Street home.
The case involves Randhir Kaur, 37, who was found fatally shot in her Albany apartment on Monday, March 9 by her cousin, who went to check on her after she didn’t show up to classes and appointments.
Just hours after the murder occurred, Duke, who lives about two miles away from the crime scene, found in her garbage bin Kaur’s designer handbag with her wallet, credit cards, ID and a “bag full of bloody clothes,” she told KTVU.
The bloody clothing could belong to the killer, KTVU said, as Kaur’s body was found fully clothed.
That Duke went to check on her garbage bin is unusual, since she is disabled and uses a wheelchair.
“If not for a visiting friend, who offered to take some trash out, no one would have discovered the purse and clothing, and since it was pick-up day, the items would have been gone an hour later,” she told KTVU.

Anyone with information on the homicide is asked to call the Albany Police Department.
