STANWOOD -- Yee Lu is the youngest in the collage of stolen lives.
Yee's broken body was left inside her Stanwood-area home. She'd been beaten and choked to death. She was just 13.
The 1983 killing has never been solved.
Yee is part of the state's first deck of cold-case playing cards. The deck features unsolved homicides and missing persons cases stretching back to the 1970s.
Snohomish County sheriff's detectives have provided the cards to the state's prisons and jails in hopes of soliciting new tips. Inmates are offered a reward for information that helps detectives track down killers and locate people who have vanished.
Yee is featured on the four of spades. Only a few details about her death are included on the card.
Detectives weren't able to find a picture of the teenager.
Yee and her family had hoped to finally escape violence. They had fled war-torn Cambodia and settled in Stanwood to start over in peace.
Violence found the teenager.
Yee had returned home after she walked her brother to a bus stop. Detectives believe she may have interrupted a break-in and caught the burglar by surprise. Yee was savagely attacked.
"It's a good possibility the burglary was the motive," sheriff's detective Dave Heitzman said.
Detectives aren't giving up on finding who took the young life.
