Earlier this month in Washington D.C., a deli owner was shot and killed inside her own store in a possible robbery: June Lim, Owner Of Grace Deli, Found Dead Inside Store; Police Investigating Case As Homicide.
64-year-old Hae Soon Lim, known to her friends as June, was found dead inside the Grace Deli on June 14. Police say she had been shot in the neck. Judging from the outpouring of sorrow, grief and support from neighbors, she was well-loved in the community.
"Why couldn't the individual or individuals have taken the money and left?" said Peter Lim, June's son. "My parents were planning to retire and sell their home and business and move out to the Eastern Shore and live out their days. She was three months away from becoming a grandmother."
The 64-year-old had started her day just like every other day since she bought the deli eight years ago: she pulled up in her red Toyota Camry and opened the front gate.
"Her car is parked out front, which means she was unloading supplies and apparently somebody must have followed her in," said Peter Lim.
