Here’s a Mugshot of the Man Wanted in the Killing and Dumping of Two Men in the Schuylkill

Tam Le is being sought by police.

Tam_Le_001 Philadelphia Police are asking for help finding the man in this photograph, Tam Le, who is wanted for his involvement in the killing of two men whose bodies were dumped in the Schuylkill River. The case horrified the city last month.

One man survived the attack after being stabbed and dumped in the river; two others — brother Vu and Viet Huynh — both died. Officials said a gang-related “drug nexus” was probably behind the August 27th attack.

NBC 10 reports: “The suspects were holding the brothers — later identified at 28-year-old Viet Huynh and 31-year-old Vu Huynh of Paoli, Pennsylvania — captive after they gambled away $100,000, which they were given to buy drugs, according to reports. … Investigators later found the bodies of the two brothers submerged in the water. Their throats were slit and both were bound with tape and tied to buckets.”

The police report:

The Philadelphia Police Department needs the public’s assistance in locating 42 year old Tam Le from 5XX East Lycoming Avenue. Le is wanted by the Philadelphia Homicide Unit for his involvement in the murders of: 31 year old Vu Huynh, and his 28 year old brother Viet Huynh both from Paoli, PA.

On Wednesday, August 27, 2014, at 3:56 am, Police responded to a Person Screaming at 2300 Kelly Drive. Upon their arrival they were met by a 23 year old male who was suffering from multiple stab wounds. The male informed officers that he was with two other males (Vu and Viet), who were later located in the Schuylkill River by the Philadelphia Police Marine Unit Divers. Both males suffered multiple stab wounds to the torso and were pronounced on location at 4:26 am.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Tam Le is asked to contact the Homicide Unit at 215-686-3334/35 or dial 911. There is a $40,000 Reward for the arrest and conviction in this Homicide case.

NBC10 adds additional arrest warrants could be forthcoming.
