A beloved hairdresser has been found murdered inside the garage of his Cleveland home, which had become known for its beautiful floral arrangements.
Cleveland Police discovered Chris Dong Vo, 57, inside the garage of his home on the city’s West Side the day after Christmas, after a person passing by spotted blood coming from underneath his garage door, local outlet WOIO reports.
Police then entered the garage through an unlocked door and found Dong Vo dead at the scene, laying in a pool of his own blood. He had been both stabbed and shot in the chest, police told WOIO. Cleveland.com reports that the garage was connected to his own home.
The Cleveland Police have not immediately responded to Oxygen.com’s request for comment.
Two suspects have apparently been arrested in connection with the killing but they haven’t been named nor charged, News 5 Cleveland reports. A motive has not been disclosed.
Dong Vo was last seen alive on Christmas Eve.
The victim had two and half decades' worth of hair dressing experience under his belt and most recently worked at Kameryn Rose Salon & Spa in Rocky River, according to WOIO.
Dong Vo’s home was known as "The Flower House," because of the flower arrangements that surrounded it. The flower arrangements were designed to other honor refugees from Vietnam. Dong Vo immigrated to the United States from a Vietnamese refugee camp as a teenager.
“Chris was known far and wide for his amazing talent as a hairstylist,” a GoFundMe campaign created to cover his funeral expenses states. “Chris also made his own home famous, the house affectionately known as The Flower House, which he transformed by hand with his immense creativity.”
It states that he “was a dear friend to so many, a wonderful person inside and out, and always the life of the party. He devoted his life to making us look and feel beautiful, and was always there to help those in need.”
The investigation into Dong Vo’s murder is ongoing.
