    How horribly sad. What a beautiful girl.

    Pham was an only child. She dreamed of being a fashion designer. She had gone to visit friends but they were not home.

    Friends of Vanessa Pham, the 19-year-old Falls Church-area woman found stabbed to death Sunday afternoon, have established a fund to help her family pay for a funeral service and have scheduled a candelight vigil for her Tuesday night.

    There was a negative comment on that above link about the family asking for money for Vanessa's funeral. Vanessa was raised by her mother and grandmother. It seems they worked very hard to give this young lady a good start in life.

    "Pham's mother told 9NEWS NOW she had to take out a $40,000 loan so her daughter could attend the prestigious Savannah College of Art and Design. Now, her daughter's friends are trying to raise money to pay for her funeral."

    There's also an address at that link where anyone can send donations.

    Vanessa's boyfriend's comment broke my heart:

    "She taught me what it feels like to be loved and to love someone in a way that I never felt before, and I know she hadn't either. And now she's teaching me to deal with something I never expected either," said Apsley.

    What an ignorant idiot who left that reply. My son attends SCAD and it's not cheap especially for a girl who was raised by her mother and grandmother trying to give her an opportunity that no one else in the family had. I did find it interesting that one comment said this:
    >>This is the third young woman from this high school ( which my own children attended) in 4 years. One was Taylor Biehl, one was Maxine Turner who was murdered in the Virginia Tech Massacre, now Vanessa.<<

    Yea, I think it's just a horrible coincidence. I know someone that lived in Suffolk VA that was also killed in the VA Tech massacre. So that makes four (that we know of).

    Va. teen seen 30 minutes before slaying


    It might be helpful if they would release which store she was seen in.

    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

    Is this close to where Morgan Harrington was murdered? I can't help but wonder if it's the suspect they suspect in her death?

    No, it's not close. Of course the suspect could have moved.

    Last Seen in NAIL SALON

    http://www.news8.net/news/stories/0710/751911.html

    VANESSA was in NAIL SALON JUST BEFORE CAR WAS FOUND
    Detectives said Pham, 19, was in a nail salon in the Fairfax Plaza shopping center in the 2900 block of Gallows Road around 3 p.m. on Sunday, June 27.
    The woman who worked on her nails said Pham didn't appear to be in distress at that time. She seemed normal, but didn't seem to want to talk, she said. They had no conversation and Pham was out of there in about 10 minutes.

    She went to visit friends in Vienna about 2:30 p.m. Sunday, said her mother, Julie Pham. But her friends weren't home.
