As earlier reported by us, an innocent night out on the town left recent graduate Kim Pham lifeless on the sidewalk suffering from brain damage that resulted in her later death with other women now being charged with murder.
Vanesa Zavala was first charged in the deadly beating, and now another woman has been charged with the California murder. While her name has not been released to the public, Associated Press tell us that Police Chief Carlos Rojas verified that a 27-year-old woman has been arrested on Friday.
The two women were chosen as suspects out of a group of five women who encountered the late Kim Pham’s group. A third party has been named a person of interest, but has yet to be arrested.
The cause for the fight is still unknown, but more information is sure to follow as all parties involved are apprehended and fully questioned. Kim Pham’s group was reportedly mostly of Vietnamese descent, while the ones charged were of Latino descent. Racial violence has been cited as a possible cause for the brutal fight that resulted in vicious head injuries to the departed Kim Pham.
A large vigil was held on Friday for Kim Pham outside of the nightclub, while Kate Larsen of NBC4 news and others ask for assistance in finding the third person of interest for further clarification of an unnecessary death.
