It had been been nearly eight years since North Bend law enforcement investigated a suspicious death within city limits, until last Friday, when a North Bend resident shot and killed a man whod broken into his home.
In last Fridays tragedy near Si View Park, law enforcement found a clear case of self-defense, but on Oct. 28, 2004, they investigated a murder-suicide that claimed the lives of the owners of Happy Sushi and Teriyaki on Southwest Mount Si Boulevard.
Man Chung, who owned the restaurant with his wife, Kwang, had a history of domestic violence, and a court order to stay away from Kwang. Hed just served two days in jail on another domestic violence charge and was released the evening of Oct. 28. He reportedly took a taxi directly to the restaurant, and stabbed Kwang four times. He then stabbed himself.
Kwang died in the kitchen. Man was dead when he reached the hospital.
North Bend was also a site of investigation two years earlier, when Teresa Cahills body was found by hunters in the area on Nov. 18, 2002. Her husband, Craig Cahill, reported her missing from their Tacoma home Nov. 16, and made a tearful television appearance about the case, before being arrested on suspicion of murder.
Court documents revealed signs of a struggle at the Cahill home, and several places that showed blood stains, recently cleaned.
Cahill was convicted of her murder in 2003, and sentenced to 45 years in prison. He successfully appealed his conviction on the grounds of mishandled evidence, but was convicted again in a retrial in 2006. He is currently in the Monroe Correctional Complex.
North Bend was also known to be used as a body dump site by serial killer Gary Ridgway and, just outside of the North Bend Sheriffs station coverage area, by Ted Bundy.
Seems like the writer can’t find anything shady in the most recent event, so he or she does his best to draw fake connections between this event and crimes of the past. The author is trying to create guilt-by-association.
Simple. Chinese people shouldn’t make sushi.>s
The only more ludicrous conversation on the subject, was with the Oakland councilman, who insisted the only solution to such shootings was preventing guns from leaking through the cities boundaries.
