Another case without any sign of a resolve in the archives. Could this be officially solved?
Frank Hong (44)
Found: Wednesday, May 31, 1972 - just after 8:05 am
Hong was found deceased in a tiny back office by then Saanich alderman Ed Lum inside Hong's business Rainbow Fish Co. wholesale store at 560 Fisgard.
Hong had been shot between the eyes and killed instantly by a single bullet from a .38 calibre weapon. Hong was discovered laying on one side.
The back door was found to be forced. The back door faced the Chinese Hospital at 555 Herald Street. The front door was unlocked.
Rainbow Fish Co. was opened by Hong's grandfather 50 years previous and was passed over to Hong in the mid-1960s after his grandfather's death. Hong had renamed the shop from the original "Hong Hop Yick".
Hong was born and educated in Victoria. He spent all his working life at the store.
Hong was part of the Victoria Chinatown Lions Club and the Chinese Masonic Society.
