West Islip Native Found Murdered in Dallas

Cheung, 27, moved to Dallas with his family nine years ago.

Aaron Cheung, a West Islip native, was found dead in his car by a passerby in northeast Dallas early Sunday morning, Dallas police said. 

At about 3:20 a.m. on Dec. 12, a passerby found Cheung, 27, dead in his parked car near his apartment home in the 8100 block of Skillman, Dallas police said.  He died of an apparent gunshot wound to the head.

According to Dallasvoice.com, Chueng's former roommate said he was shot outside his parents' home in an apparent robbery. He had moved back in with his parents just a week earlier.

The Dallas County Medical Examiner's Office is working to determine the cause and manner of Cheung's death and homicide detectives are currently working on the case.

Cheung owned the restaurant Bacon & Friends in Mesquite, Texas which was still in its first year of operation.  He graduated from North Myrtle Beach High School in South Carolina and then moved to Dallas with his family nine years ago, Dallasvoice.com said.

I love to cook, dining out, sappy movies, romantic sillies… there's more… I love cars! Just got my 5th car in the last 7 years (this one's gotta stick for a while). I also enjoy midnight drives to nowhere, going to the mall and shopping for nothing, good friends and GREAT times. Started a weight loss thing…. be on it for about 3 months… lost about 35lbs so i guess that's an intrest as well I'm also a memeber with FUSE, check it out! www.getyourfuseon.com

Editor's Note: Patch is still gathering information about the victim during the time he lived in West Islip.

This seems suspicious. Was a weapon recovered at the scene? While I have always loved your sports writing AJ, I think you make an awesome Crime Beat Reporter! Keep up the good work!

It's about to be two years next month. I miss Aaron so much. I hope justice will be served one day.
