Anniversary of Va. teen's murder marked

By Washington Post editors

Vanessa Pham. (Pham family)

Six months ago, police discovered the murder of 19-year-old Vanessa Pham, a graduate of Madison High School in Vienna, Va., and a freshman at Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia.

Today, friends and family gathered at 11 a.m. to dedicate a bench in her honor at the Vienna Town Green on 144 Maple Avenue E, reported WTOP.

Pham's death initially appeared be the result of a car crash near Route 50 on June 27, but it has since been ruled a homicide, and the investigation continues.

Detectives have released a video of Pham's car in the Fairfax Plaza shopping center, which Pham visited around 3 p.m. that day. She did not appear to be in distress at the time. (See below).

Police are asking the public to pay close attention to the portion of the video when Pham's car is attempting to leave the parking lot, WTOP reported. There are several vehicles behind her car and others on Gallows Road attempting to enter the parking lot.

Anyone who recalls seeing her car around Fairfax Plaza shopping center is asked to call the Fairfax County Police Department at 703-691-2131.
