Real Name: Rosemary Hom
Nicknames: No known nicknames
Location: Los Angeles, California
Date: November 5, 1994
Details: Forty-two-year-old Rosemary Hom was the co-owner of a Los Angeles bakery and mother of four children when she vanished on November 5, 1994. She was last seen alive around 9AM by one of her employees who said that as she entered a parking garage, she noticed an unidentified Asian man entering behind her. A half hour later, her car exited the garage but he was driving instead of her.
Eleven hours later, the car was found with her body inside. She had been stabbed to death. Psychic Noreen Renier was asked by police to investigate the case. Unsolved Mysteries brought her to Los Angeles to meet with investigators. She first described the victim, then the attack on Rosemary as well as her killer. However, the murder remains unsolved.
Suspects: The unknown Asian man was described by the eyewitness and Noreen as mid to late twenties and was about 150 pounds. She also described specific tattoos on the man, which matched those belonging to a local gang. He has never been identified. Noreen claimed that the man was jealous of Rosemary; this is unconfirmed.
Extra Notes: This case first aired on the April 28, 1995 episode.
Results: Solved. In 2004, new DNA evidence taken from the crime scene identified the killer as a forty-three-year-old former employee named Thanh Chi Phung. In 2006, he pleaded guilty to first degree murder and was sentenced to sixteen years to life in prison.
