A 24-year-old Glendale woman reported missing last week was found dead in the trunk of her boyfriend's car Friday night in Azusa, and her boyfriend is still missing, police said. Odet Tsaturyan was last seen by her family at about 5 p.m. Tuesday as she was leaving for a party, Glendale Sgt. Tom Lorenz said. "It's not like her to disappear and not keep in touch with the family," Lorenz said. "So they knew something was wrong the moment she didn't come home."

A trip to the CIF Southern Section Division III-A championship contest appeared to be anything but a slam dunk for the St. Francis High basketball team just a couple of weeks ago. After stumbling through the second half of Mission League, St. Francis earned the second seed in the division's playoff bracket before being taken to overtime by unseeded Yucca Valley in the first round. Since the opening-round scare, the Golden Knights appear to be the squad that excelled throughout December and the first part of January.
