    This guy should pay for his crime and be sentenced to death! >:C Because the victim is a man that has a family, he has to care for and now that he's gone, the people that have to suffer will be his family. Plus, the victim is still young, he probably still have many things he wants to do for himself and his family. The sad thing is he didn't have a chance to talk or see his family, leaving behind a wife and three kids :O I feel like the suspect, Vinh V. Nguyen, have just wasted half of his own life and destroyed the lives of others.

    People need to take the time to think about things before they actually do it ,If people take that one minute to think then just think about all the lives that would be saved and all the people that would have there freedom

      but theyre just friends though. my mom knows thuyens wife and she said that vinh made dirty comments about her and then thuyen needed to make a phone call to her and he went to the front of the house, then vinh told the other people who were there that he was gonna stab thuyen, the people thought he was joking but turns out he was serious RIP Thuyen Dang Cao and god bless

    This man came across as a really nice person,Have lived in riverneck for many years around these people,They drink, They fight! This isnt the first time this has happened in Tyrrell county.They are very hard working people and will help you out in any situation,just when they get angry and hold a grudge they dont forgive and forget, so sad that someone had to lose their life over ignorance.

    No welfare comments. Wow so only blacks get the priviledge of being called welfare kids, no daddies, and thugs. I feel so honored to live in Eastern North Carolina.

        and there are Blacks who work also. So why must every time something comes up, people immediately label them as products of welfare?
