$20K reward offered in 2018 Fauquier County murders of father, son

BEALETON, Va. (FOX 5 DC) - The FBI announced that a $20,000 reward is being offered in the murders of a father and son in Fauquier County back in November 2018.

Federal detectives began working with the Fauquier County Sheriff's Office almost immediately to help investigate the death of 61-year-old Duong Nguyen and 22-year-old America Nguyen after they were found shot to death in their home in the 11000 block of Salisbury Drive in Bealeton following a request for a welfare check on Nov. 9, 2018.

Officials said friends and co-workers reported concerns that America Nguyen had not shown up to work at Pohanka Acura in Chantilly. The last contact anyone had with America Nguyen was on Nov. 7, 2018, when he communicated with a family member via social media, according to investigators.

America Nguyen had just accepted a job with Amazon and his co-workers at the car dealership said he was responsible and hard-working. Friends and acquaintances of American Nguyen expressed shock upon learning of the 22-year-old's death.

Officials said two other family members lived with the father and son at the house, but had been away from the home for weeks when the murders occurred.

On Tuesday, the FBI announced it was offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspect or suspects responsible for the murders.
