UPDATED: Friday, 5:30 p.m. Police have changed the victim’s age from 85 to 77.
The death of a 77-year-old man, found dead in his apartment in the Little River Glen Senior Center Thursday morning, is being investigated as a homicide.
Fairfax County police say Cong Huu Nguyen’s body was discovered around 8:00 a.m. The Maryland Medical Examiner reports Nguyen died from “upper body trauma.”
The senior center is located at 4001 Barker Court in Fairfax. Its brochure describes the center as “affordable retirement living to seniors with moderate incomes.” It has four residential buildings with a total of 120 one-bedroom apartments. Its Facebook page describes the senior center as “…a Fairfax County Government facility, which is operated through the Department of Neighborhood and Community Services.”
Detectives are hoping that someone is able to share information about this death and will call the Fairfax County Police homicide division.
