Fairfax police seek help in Pham case
Fairfax County police on Wednesday began asking for the public's help in the stabbing death Sunday of 19-year-old Vanessa Pham, distributing a flyer with a photo of Pham's 2008 Scion tC hatchback and asking anyone who saw the car on Sunday to call homicide detectives.
Pham's car veered off a service road along Route 50 in the Falls Church area about 3:30 p.m. Sunday, and landed in a ravine just west of Gallows Road. When police officers and firefighters arrived, they found Pham inside the car.
Pham's mother said she had been visiting friends in the Vienna area Sunday afternoon, and was last seen about 2:30 p.m. The police flyer said investigators believe Pham may have been driving along either Route 50 or Route 29, between Nutley Street and Gallows Road, in the time before her car went into the wooded area in the 8300 block of Arlington Boulevard [Route 50], near the intersection with Williams Drive.
Pham's hatchback is white with "OBX" and "SCAD" stickers on the back. She had just completed her freshman year at Savannah College of Art and Design, after graduating last year from James Madison High School in Vienna. She lived with her mother and extended family in the Falls Church area.
Anyone who spotted the Scion on Sunday is asked to call Detective Robert Bond, the lead homicide detective on the case, at 703-246-4057.
