Asian-American Woman Killed After Being Followed Home

When will the violence against women and anti-Asian hate stop?

Christina Yuna Lee was found dead in the bathtub of her apartment, viciously stabbed to death by a homeless man who followed her home. After returning from a night out, Lee came back to her Chinatown apartment, unaware that Assamad Nash trailed behind her, a mere six feet away, As her landlord Brian Chin, told WNBC, “She opened the door and he just slipped in right behind her. She never even knew he was there. The police arrived on the scene after two young women in the apartment building heard Lee’s cries for help.
