A memorial service for Jennifer Han-chi Lin is scheduled on Friday, May 26, 7:00 PM, at the Castro Valley Library on 3600 Norbridge Avenue in Castro Valley. 23 years ago this Friday, Jenny was brutally murdered in her own home at age 14. To this date, the case is still unsolved, and still very much in need of public help in solving the case.
Jenny’s family and friends will gather at the ceremony to remember her. Law enforcement personnel will also be present to provide updates on the investigation effort. A candlelight walk will follow the ceremony to remind public that the murder case is still unsolved and that child safety should be a high priority on everyone’s mind.
Public is welcome to join this special event.
