Ann Nguyen - a store owner killed in Ville Platte, Louisiana

Ann Nguyen
Ann Nguyen, age 59, died on July 28, 2014, at her store in Ville Platte, Louisiana.

Just before noon, a man entered the grocery and meat market store and told all of the customers to leave. He shot Ann Nguyen multiple times in a robbery attempt.

Ann had owned the store for a decade. She was just weeks from retiring. She was looking forward to joining some of her five children in California. None of her kids live in Louisiana.

Samuel Anderson, age 30, of Ville Platte, has been charged with murder and armed robbery. He has a criminal record that
Samuel Anderson
goes back 12 years and includes arrests for forgery, burglary, disturbing the peace, possessing an illegal firearm, driving while suspended, damage to property, sexual battery and numerous drug charges.

This dude is bad news from the word go. He has a rap sheet like Judas.

Friends say that Ann was always singing as she worked, all day long. She is described as a sweet woman and a hard worker.

Ann's family are devastated by her tragic and senseless death. She will be forever mourned.

Ann is survived by many loving friends and family members including her five children. 

Pray for Ann
Pray for justice for Ann. 

Pray for all who go to work and who die there.

God save us from the thieves. They are killing us, Father.

Pray that Ann is in heaven. Pray that she is at peace and is with God. Amen.
