The Arlington Police Department appealed to the public today for information leading to the arrest of suspects involved in the brutal slaying of an Arlington couple on June 9, 2011.

Detective Byron Stewart spoke with news media about the ongoing investigation of 72-year-old Long Nguyen and 63-year-old Huong Ly, who were local business owners.

The couple was in their apartment in the 3600 block of Waverly Court when they were slain. A family member called 911 on the morning of Sept. 10 after finding a window open. A Tarrant County medical examiner later determined the cause of their death to be asphyxiation.

Tuesday marked 100 days since their deaths.

"We appeal to the public and anyone out there with information to come forward or call the Arlington Police Department," Stewart said. "The family and the community are looking for closure and (they want) suspects brought to justice."

Stewart described the crime scene as a "senseless act of violence," and told reporters that a motive could have been robbery because personal items were removed from the couple's home. Stewart said more than one suspect could have been involved.

Oak Farms Dairy is offering a $10,000 reward for anyone with information that leads to an arrest and grand jury indictment. Tipsters will remain anonymous. Call Detective Byron Stewart at 817-459-5691 or CrimeStoppers at 817-469-TIPS.
