Case 50

Jennifer Pan

*** Content Warning: gun violence ***

On the evening of November 8 2010, 25-year-old University of Toronto student Jennifer Pan was relaxing in the bedroom of her family home in the Ontario neighbourhood of Unionville. Her parents, Bich Ha and Hann Huei, were also home at the time. Suddenly, Jennifer heard unfamiliar voices downstairs, followed by thudding footsteps. She immediately knew that something was very wrong. 

What followed was a brutal home invasion with devastating consequences. As detectives began digging into the case, they made an alarming discovery that would captivate the nation.
