Police Continue Search for Leads on
Two-Year Anniversary of Yun Homicide
           

            Sully Police District - Homicide detectives are still seeking leads in a two-year long investigation of the murder of Yong Suk Yun, 61. He was killed on October 7, 2010, in his Fairfax Station home at 5781 Ladues End Court. Yun owned the Dr. Wash in Chantilly and detectives believe Yun’s murder stemmed from a robbery.

            The reward for information leading to an arrest in this case has increased to $70,000. Police have interviewed over 100 people, watched over 100 hours of video and exhausted numerous leads surrounding this homicide. They also created a video in Korean language in their efforts to reach out to non-English speakers, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2b3uwOnAjak.

            Detectives continue to ask for the public’s assistance in reporting any information to the police, no matter how insignificant it may seem.

            “We are committed to solving this murder and continue our plea to the community for information,” said lead detective Connie Morris.

            “We are seeking information that may not seem related to this case but was unusual or uncommon in someone else’s day—that could be the key to solving this murder. Something that seemed random or un-noteworthy could be the missing link in this case. Perhaps someone left work early, or arrived home late and seemed anxious, not themselves or wearing different clothing; these could be indicators of suspicious activity,” Morris added.

            Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Solvers by phone at 1-866-411-TIPS/8477, e-mail at www.fairfaxcrimesolvers.org or text “TIP187” plus your message to CRIMES/274637 or call Fairfax County Police at 703-691-2131.
