Lake Mary murder victim's family trying to cope with loss
LAKE MARY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - Authorities on Thursday released a 911 call reporting the death of a woman at a Lake Mary dry cleaners. Police say Nu Dang, an employee of the business, was found inside a bathroom at the business on Tuesday afternoon, with "clear signs of trauma." "There's a body, naked girl, and it looks like she's dead," the caller told the 911 operator. "I looked around the store to see if she's alright. She's not. Please send someone immediately."
The man accused of her murder, Andre Luciano, is now in custody and faces three charges, the most serious of which is first-degree murder. He was arrested in Kissimmee, found inside the victim's car. "Eight brothers and sisters. He took our lives too," said the victim's sister, Chau McAfee. She and her husband own the business. "He needs to pay, he needs to. I don't know what he was thinking. He didn't have to kill her, he didn't have to kill her. He got enough money and he got car." McAfee and her family came over from Vietnam as refugees in 1979, and have been in business for 28 years.
Luciano is scheduled for a first appearance before a Seminole County judge on Friday.
