Murder Victim's Stolen Lexus Found

FAIRFAX STATION, Va. (WUSA) -- Police have found the stolen Lexus that belonged to a man murdered at his home.   Sixty-one year old Yong S.  Yun  was found dead Thursday afternoon. 

Monday night just after 11 p.m.  Fairfax County police say an alert officer found Yun's missing 2002 gold Lexus LX470.   It was parked in the 4300 block of Americana Drive in Annandale, which is off of Route 236, next to the Beltway.     The vehicle was taken to a crime lab for processing.  

Yun owned Dr. Wash, a Chantilly car wash business located on Lee Jackson Highway.  He was found dead Thursday afternoon after his wife discovered his body at their home on Ladues End Lane off Fairfax County Parkway in Fairfax Station.

An autopsy revealed he died of trauma to his upper body.

Fairfax County Police Officer Tawny Wright said they need anyone who saw someone parking or driving away in the Lexus to call them.    To reach Crime Solvers call 1-866-411-TIPS (8477.)

Jonathan Larson and other neighbors are in disbelief.
He says, "It's a shock to our family. This is a quiet neighborhood, nothing like this ever happens around here. They are very nice neighbors, I always see them walking their dog every day. He gave back to the community. Very polite."

Family members describe Yun as a generous man who gave to everyone around him. He financially supported his many nieces and nephews through school.

Yun owned Dr. Wash off Lee Jackson Highway next to the Quiznos.

Neighbors say he was wanting to retire and left most of the car wash business to his son and nephews.

Yun is survived by two sons and his wife.
