According to Gascón, on Saturday, June 24, deputies with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department responded to Happy Home Care on Sapphire Canyon Road, where they found two residents, Monica Moon Lee, 75, and Hee Sook Park, 83, deceased. The Sheriff’s Office did not disclose the victims’ cause of death but said foul play is suspected.
Investigators with the Sheriff’s Office determined Li, a live-in caretaker at the facility, allegedly killed the two victims.
Gascón said in a statement, "The tragic and brutal murders of these two elderly women at Happy Home Care are a stark reminder of the need for increased vigilance and scrutiny in our care facilities."
He added, "We must ensure that all caretakers are held accountable for their actions. Our hearts go out to the families of these victims, and we will work tirelessly to bring them the justice they deserve."
