Candlelight Vigil Held In San Jose To Remember Murdered Radio Host

SAN JOSE (KCBS)— Scores of mourners attended a candlelight vigil in San Jose for a popular Vietnamese-American radio host who was murdered, allegedly by a wanted parolee.

Family and friends described the Friday night gathering as a celebration of 60-year-old Cindy Nguyen’s life.

KCBS’ Anna Duckworth Reports:

The event, where roughly one-thousand gathered, was held at the same shopping center where Nguyen was carjacked and kidnapped last Friday.

Her 25-year-old son, Kah Nguyen, addressed the attendants at the vigil and said it was beautiful to see so many people come together in his mothers’ honor.

“[She] was the kindest person ever. She had such a strong heart, that she touched and inspired anyone she met,” said the grieving son.

Her former boss Nick Pham called her a gracious woman who cared deeply for people and said her murder is a loss to the entire community.

“I am going to ask for everyone to keep one good thought with you right now, because Cindy would want that,” said Pham.

33-year-old Paul Castillo is charged with Nguyen’s murder as well as the attempted murder of a man shot while pumping gas last Friday and a string of other robberies.
