There will be a candlelight vigil in memory of Venice resident Eun Kang and her unborn twins tomorrow evening (Sunday the 8th) from 4:30pm to 6 in the “Crescent Place Triangle” near Shell Ave. and Superba. All Venice residents are encouraged to attend.
The public vigil marks the four year anniversary of the brutal rape and murder of 39 year old Eun Kang (who was pregnant with twins) by transient Boneetio Kentro Washington at her Electric Avenue home in Venice, on December 8th of 2009.
Attendees are asked to bring candles and flowers to the vigil.
On December 17, 2009, Washington was charged with 3 counts of capital murder. The charges included the special circumstances of multiple murders, murder during a rape and murder during a burglary. He was also charged with one count of rape and one count of sexual penetration. Washington plead not guilty to all charges.
At last asking, Washington had not yet come to trial for the murders.
