BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - A Birmingham company is teaming up with Birmingham police in hopes of helping them find the person responsible for killing a nail salon owner and his common law wife. Barber's Dairy is offering a $10,000 reward to the person who helps police arrest and convict a suspect in the death of 60-year-old Jacky Nuguyen and 50-year old Nhut Phan.
Nuguyen owned Top Perfect Nail Salon located on Bessemer Super Highway near Five Points West in Birmingham. A customer and employee found he and Phan shot to death inside the salon on Monday, December 27th.
Police will not say if the deaths were the result of the a robbery. And they still have no suspects in the case.
"Right now, we're still at the same spot we were on the day they were discovered," said Sgt. Johnny Williams, a spokesperson for the Birmingham Police Department. He strongly feels someone in the community knows something and he hopes the reward money will help them come forward.
"Hopefully it will catch someone's ear. They may be in need of the money, they may have info and be afraid to come forward," Williams says. "In any case, we hope they will give us a call and get this money as well as other money available through Crimestoppers."
Williams stresses that the $10,000 being offered by Barber's Dairy comes only after a person is arrested and convicted for the killings.
Crimestoppers is offering a $2,000 reward. That will be given to the person that leads police to the arrest of a suspect.
If anyone has information in this case, they're asked to call Birmingham Police at 254-1764 or Crimestoppers at 254-777. You can remain anonymous when you call.
