Asian Pacific American Heritage Month: Soon Hwang

In honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, I am profiling one Asian or Pacific Islander MP for every day of the month of May. Today’s case is Soon Chon Hwang, a 44-year-old businessman who disappeared from Memphis, Tennessee on September 5, 2006. He owned a grocery store there.

Hwang was at a wholesale grocery shopping, presumably buying stuff to resell at his own store, when he got a call and left in a hurry, leaving his shopping behind. He was never seen again and his truck was found in West Memphis, Arkansas (just over the state border, about twelve minutes from Memphis) that same day.

I couldn’t find any news about this case; the only thing I could find was some court filing where Hwang was listed as a defendant in a lawsuit. The document notes that the sheriff couldn’t serve him because he’d been “missing F/2 yrs.” In fact, by then he’d been missing for three and a half years.

    I hope the authorities in Washington, can track down an offender in Lindsey’s murder. I hope they can provide more details in her case in the near future.

    I am however upset that her friend’s mother did not offer her a ride home. She allowed a innocent 10-year old girl to walk home alone. So she became the victim of some evil person who kidnapped her and took her life. I would never do that to anyone.

    There is a female employee of the McDonald’s where I hang out. She lives a few blocks from me. I offered her a ride home, so that she is not walking home alone at night. Most of the time she calls a taxi. I can save her a few bucks from what she makes at work.
