Next month will mark 20 years since the callous, brutal, unsolved murder of Phoutone “Tawn” Lothirath in Escondido, California. On Halloween night in 1995, Tawn’s 10-year-old son answered the door to pass out candy to an unknown male, posed as a trick-or-treater. Armed with a gun and wearing a full face bandanna the gunman forced his way into the home and ordered Tawn’s son to his room. Tawn was pinned to the couch before being shot once in the head and multiple time in the chest. The suspect was described as a male Asian but no arrest has ever been made.
