My-Linh, A Tragic Loss Seattle, WA

My-Linh "Lily" Nguyen was tragically killed in a robbery on her way home from work on Thursday, December 15th 2016, just steps away from her home.  Her 15 year old son heard her calling out his name for help and ran out to find a man kicking his mom.  The man then shot My-Linh multiple times in front of her son.  Fearing for her safety, her son dragged her from the street to the side walk and ran into the house to call 911 and her husband, who was at work.   My- Linh's husband rushed to the hospital to find his wife had already passed.

My-Linh was a loving mother and wife.  She will be sadly missed by her family, friends, customers, coworkers, and neighbors.



We are her neighbors and wanted to help her family in this terrible time.  The Hillman City and Columbia City Communities would like to reach out and ask for help for this family.  Please make a donation. 
Her family will take over this account.  My Lieu Thanh is Mr. Lieu's sister and has taken over this account to help her brother and his son.  My Lieu has been working so hard to help translate with the media and make sure everyone in the community is safe.  Thank you for your support.

This update was requested by the family to correct the events of the timeline.  They requested that the community knows what happened.
