Victim Joung Nam Kim
Tacoma Police detectives need your help to identify the suspects responsible for the murder of 56 year-old Joung Nam Kim, and for the robbery of a store owned by the victim.
At 7:30 p.m. on January 18th, 1995, two unidentified suspects entered the Min Grocery store located in the 3100 block of Portland Ave. in the City of Tacoma. The suspects began ransacking the store and then shot and killed victim Joung Nam Kim, who was working in the store.
The suspects took the cash from the register, then ran out of the store and down an alley. The two suspects entered a waiting vehicle driven by a third unidentified suspect.
The two suspects who entered the store were described as a black male and a native american male in their late teens or early 20's. The getaway vehicle was described as a maroon sedan, possibly a Nissan Maxima or Sentra. Detectives are looking for any information on the suspects responsible for the robbery and murder.
Thoughts? Unfortunately I couldn't find a photo of Young Nam Kim (I usually like to put a face to these tragedies as a reminder they were human beings), but I feel this is a solvable case despite the 20 plus years. They were young then. And as time goes by, perhaps someone with a guilty conscience who was either involved or had knowledge of who committed this heinous crime comes forward. Let's hope that finally happens one day.
