Police cannot afford to drop its investigation into the murder of a couple in San Vicente last December, according to acting Department of Public Safety commissioner Sgt. James C. Deleon Guerrero.
Deleon Guerrero, in an interview with Saipan Tribune last week, said the murder of Jun Li Yang and his wife, Jing Liu, touches him in a lot of ways.
“We have a 6-year-old boy who was unable to celebrate Christmas with his parents. And to me that is a major, major injustice,” he said.
The victims' son was at Mt. Carmel School when his parents were killed inside their home.
“We cannot afford to drop the ball on this one,” Deleon Guerrero said, adding that the investigation is ongoing.
He admitted, though, that they have no significant leads at this point to lead them to a suspect or suspects.
“But in terms of focus, there are still investigators that are continuing to go up there and interviewing people,” he said.
Even if police have yet to solve yet this case and other pending homicide incidents, Deleon Guerrero believes the important thing is that the focus of the investigation is continuing.
Jun Li Yang, 50, and Jing Liu, 40, were found murdered inside their home in San Vicente on Dec. 8, 2012. Police checked the residence after the couple failed to pick up their 6-year-old son from Mt. Carmel School on Dec. 6, 2012.
The couple's car, a white 2010 Honda CRV, was found abandoned at Micro Beach in Garapan.
Jing Liu was president, treasurer and secretary of a company that was planning to put up a recycling center and engage in apartment rental.
