Police said Wednesday that they have no suspects in the murders of a Cambodian immigrant woman and her 21-month-old baby last weekend in Highland Park. The two were found slashed to death in their apartment at 4909 Oak Terrace Drive.
The woman, Hang Tang, 28, and her daughter, Margaret Chea, were found in their home Saturday night by Hang Tang's husband, who is not a suspect, police said. A 4-month-old daughter was unharmed.
Detective Roy Goebel said the two were killed with "an unknown cutting instrument." Goebel said that some items were missing from the apartment but that there were no signs of forced entry and no weapon was found.
In an interview translated by a neighbor, the victim's husband, Huon Chea, said he found his wife and daughter lying in the living room of their home after he returned from a shopping trip. He said that he had no idea why the killings took place and that he had had no problems with anyone in the community.
