Sometime before 9 p.m. on Thursday, March 3rd, a 54 year old female cook at Lee’s Cafe and Bistro on the 500 block of Washington Avenue was found dead in the basement of the Vietnamese restaurant.

Police tell CBS 3 that the woman put up a fierce fight and that they are currently collecting video from businesses along Washington Avenue that may lead them to identify the suspect or suspects.

Lee’s Cafe is from the same owners as Cafe Nhu Y, the popular but tiny banh mi spot at 8th and Christian that closed in the fall of 2014.
