Police have upped the ante in the search for 39-year-old Lieu Nguyen’s killer, who was found shot to death Dec. 5.
“Someone out there knows about this case. Call Crime Stoppers and help solve this heinous crime,” said Sheriff Troy Nehls.
Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers has raised the reward for information leading to an arrest in Nguyen’s murder to $10,000. Nguyen is survived by her two sons; one 11-year-old and one eight-month-old.
Nguyen’s body was reportedly found at the intersection of Addicks-Clodine Road and Bissonnet Road by her husband, after she was able to pull over to the side of the road and call him for help. By the time authorities arrived, she had died from her injuries.
Police believe the shooting may have been motivated by road rage.
“Early indicators of witness statements and some video we believe that there was some type of altercation on the roadway and an unknown subject fired at her vehicle and she was struck multiple times,” said Detective Scott Minyard of the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Department.
There are people who witnessed the shooting, according to investigators, and they are still looking for the culprit. They’ve also combed the area for surveillance footage.
