Suspect Is Arrested in Slaying

October 16, 2004|From a Times Staff Writer

A suspect was arrested Friday night in the fatal stabbing of a Hawaiian Gardens Quickie Mart worker.

Michael Seamster, a 41-year-old resident of Cypress, was arrested in that city after residents called in tips to authorities, sheriff's Deputy Tania Plunkett said.

On Monday, deputies responding to a robbery-in-progress call found Il Shin Chang, 49, stabbed to death inside the locked store. Nearby, deputies found a blood-soaked T-shirt believed to belong to the suspect, who witnesses saw tending a cut shortly after the crime, authorities said.
