Scores of mourners attended a candlelight vigil in San Jose for a popular Vietnamese-American radio host whose murder, allegedly by a wanted parolee, has greatly impacted the community.
The week before a San Jose ex-con allegedly shot a gas station attendant and then kidnapped and murdered Cindy Nguyen, he committed several other violent robberies, according to court documents.
The public defender representing Paul Castillo said he has mental issues and has been placed on suicide watch.
Detectives served a search warrant at a marijuana collective in San Jose in connection with Friday’s homicide and crime spree, police announced Tuesday night.
A friend of Cindy Nguyen said the kidnapping and murder of the Vietnamese-language radio host has devastated her family and reverberated throughout a community that extends to Vietnam.
A three day manhunt ended on Sunday night as the suspect in a San Jose crime spree was apprehended in West Sacramento.
