Bark Dump Slaying Victims from The Bay Area

DSC02729Mendocino County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the 31000 block of Highway 20, Fort Bragg, for a report of a suspicious vehicle parked in the area.

Upon their arrival, Sheriff’s deputies located a mini-van parked near the area of the “bark dump”. The van was parked in a manner which prevented it from being seen from Highway 20.

Deputies checked the interior of the van and discovered a deceased female in the front driver seat and a deceased male in the front passenger seat. Both victims appeared to have suffered wounds to the head. The exact cause of death is pending the results of an autopsy. Sheriff’s Detectives identified the female victim as being Cindy Bao Feng Chen (38-years-old) from San Francisco, California and the male victim as being Jim Tat Kong (51-years-old) from San Pablo, California.

The case is still being actively investigated by Sheriff’s Detectives and anyone with information pertaining to the investigation is asked to contact the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office “tip line” at (707) 234-2100.
