$20K offered for more info on 2018 killing of father, son in Fauquier Co. home

Months after a father and son were shot to death in their Fauquier County, Virginia, home, the FBI is now offering a reward of up to $20,000 for information that may help lead to whoever is responsible for their murders.

Deputies found 61-year-old Duong Nguyen and his son, 22-year-old America Nguyen, dead inside their Bealeton home the morning of Nov. 8, 2018 following a welfare check.

The two were unarmed and were found with gunshot wounds, officials said. They were likely killed overnight, sometime between the evening of Nov. 7 and the morning of Nov. 8, officials said.

The FBI is asking anyone who traveled on the Route 28/Catlett Road corridor during that time and saw something suspicious to contact law enforcement officials. 

“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,” said Fauquier County Sheriff Bob Mosier in a statement Tuesday.

America Nguyen’s co-workers at the Chantilly car dealership he worked at were concerned when he didn’t show up that morning. He last communicated with a family member on social media the night of Nov. 7, 2018.

The 22-year-old was also a student at Northern Virginia Community College and, at the time, he had recently landed a job with Amazon, officials said last year.

“A double homicide involving a father and son with no apparent reason, no motive, no suspect is very unusual here in Fauquier County,” said a Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office spokesman last year, “and it is obviously very alarming to the neighbors and citizens who live here.”

To submit a tip, fill out an online form, or call the FBI’s Washington Field Office at (202) 278-2000.
