“I have been here two years,” Fang said. “I know nothing. No English. No friends. No relatives. Without my husband, it is the same as losing both my eyes.”

Fang says her husband was a truck driver. She is a cleaner. He leaves behind two daughters, pre-school age.

“I feel helpless now,” she said. “I don’t know how to make a living and take care of the two children. At the end of this month, I need to pay the rent. I do not know what to do.”

Police are asking for help trying to find the killer. Fang is also looking for help to bury her husband.
