SEATTLE -- Homicide detectives are investigating after a woman was found dead in her West Seattle home Saturday afternoon.
Police believe 46-year-old Nga Nguyen was the victim of foul play. Her 20-year-old daughter Trang Nguyen made the gruesome discovery Saturday.
"I miss my mom," she said outside her mother's High Point neighborhood home, "She was the world to me. She gave me anything I ever wanted."
Trang Nguyen could not elaborate on what she saw or her emotions of finding her mother dead. All she said is, "it was messy". It appeared she had been stabbed, Nguyen said.
According to her daughter, Nga Nguyen was a single mother with no enemies and no job. Instead, she lived in a quiet neighborhood and was a wonderful parent, Trang described.
While police look for whoever did this, candles and flowers are at Nguyen’s doorstep and her daughter is still in shock.
"Maybe I could've saved my mom. Or maybe I couldn't. I just miss my mom," she said.
