FBI and Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office Seek Information on Murder of Father and Son

FBI Offering $20,000 Reward for Information Leading to Arrest of Those Responsible

The FBI Washington Field Office, along with the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office, is seeking assistance from the public to identify an unknown individual or individuals responsible for the brutal murder of Duong and America Nguyen in Bealeton, Virginia.

In the middle of the night on November 7, 2018, Duong and America Nguyen were shot by an unknown assailant(s) while in their home located in Bealeton, Virginia. The Nguyens were unarmed.

“This family is devastated,” said Sheriff Bob Mosier. “The sheriff’s office, working in partnership with the FBI, hopes this reward will help bring resolution to the senseless murder of this father and son and some closure for their family.”

“The public is our best weapon in solving this murder," said Charles Dayoub, acting special agent in charge of the FBI Washington Field Office’s Criminal Division. "We hope that with the passage of time, and through a significant reward of $20,000, someone with information will come forward and help us bring closure to the family and justice to Duong and America Nguyen.”

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $20,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the violent murder of Duong and America Nguyen. Anyone who may have traveled the Rt. 28, Catlett Road corridor in Fauquier County to Prince William County on the evening of November 7, 2018, or the early morning hours of November 8, 2018, is asked to contact the FBI if you remember anything or anyone suspicious during your commute.

Law enforcement agencies are asking anyone with information about this crime to call the FBI Washington Field Office at (202) 278-2000. You may also contact your local FBI field office, the nearest American Embassy or Consulate, or you can submit a tip online at tips.fbi.gov. All tips can remain anonymous.
