DEC. 22, 2022 UPDATE: TWO MEN HAVE BEEN ARRESTED AND CHARGED WITH CHONG MOUA YANG’S MURDER! READ ABOUT IT HERE. AN UPDATE TO OUR EPISODE ON CHONG’S CASE IS FORTHCOMING.
A lifelong hunter, Chong Moua Yang was killed on Nov. 15th, 2018 while hunting his favorite spot at Rose Lake Wildlife Area in Bath Township, MI (near Lansing). He was found at the base of his treestand with a single gunshot wound to his head. His traditional Hmong hunting knife (pictured below), shotgun, backpack and wallet had all been taken.
It’s possible that Chong’s killer may be in possession of the stolen items. His traditional Hmong hunting knife is especially distinctive and unusual for the area.
Also pictured below: two unidentified hunters captured on a trail cam. Investigators believe these hunters may have witnessed something important without realizing its significance. If you recognize them, please tell them to contact the Bath Township Police Police or the FBI Detroit Field Office.
