Two years and two days have passed since the murder of Fairfax Station resident and Chantilly business owner Yong Suk Yun.
The reward for information leading to an arrest is now $70,000, Fairfax County Police announced in a release.
Yun, who was 61 when he died, owned Dr. Wash in Chantilly, and detectives think a robbery may be connected to Yun's murder. Yun was killed at Ladues End Court home in Fairfax Station. His Lexus was stolen, but police recovered it four days later.
Police last year released a composite image of a white pick-up truck with a landscaping-type trailer attached that some people saw in the area around the time of Yun's death.
“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,” said lead detective Connie Morris.
Patch interviewed Fairfax County Police in a Korean language video to reach out to the Korean-speaking business community for information about this case. You can watch that video in the player to the right.
“We are committed to solving this murder and continue our plea to the community for information,” Morris said in a release from the Fairfax County Police Department.
