Local NSX Owner Kills Ex-Girlfriend in Gainesville

Local NSX Owner Kills Ex-Girlfriend in Gainesville

In the wild and wonderful car world, you often rub shoulders with fellow enthusiasts bonding over a V8 – but beyond cars, we rarely truly get to know these people’s private lives.

Such is the case with Bryan Christopher Yu – a local NSX owner who frequented many local events. Bryan was the alleged murderer of his ex-girlfriend 26-year-old Linh Thi Pham. Aged 33, Bryan pulled a gun on Linh in a parking lot in Gainesville on Sunday night around 6:30PM outside her workplace.

Pham was rushed to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead. Yu and Pham were due to appear in court at a child support hearing Monday morning.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to support the daughter and her family. The page writes:

“My name is Tommy & My dear old friend Linh tragically lost her life last night approximately 5:30pm. She was in her car at a parking lot & She was shot to death.  Police is still investigating the crime scene. She had a daughter name Victoria

The people that knows Linh, know that she was always a hard worker, trying to raise her kid as a single mom. was always happy and caring to the people around her. She was always there. She showed unconditional love like no other.  She was only 26 years old.

As im typing this story, i am still in disbelief that this happened. Cannot believe that she is gone. A beautiful daughter of her are now lost without her mother. A family that lost their child. My heart goes out to them.

This is my first time campaigning  
There isnt an exact goal that i want to raise but no donation is too little or too much. However much we raise, fundings will go to her family & her daughter.

This will mean alot to me and everyone else. And we appreciate it.

Linh.. mai này chúng ta có duyên gặp lại”

    Just an FYI, you should probably change this to accused of instead of kills. Since this case has not even gone to court yet.

    It could come back to bite you.
