Unsolved Mother’s Day triple homicide still haunts family four years later

A family in Stockton is still grieving the three lives taken by an unsolved shooting on Mother’s Day four years ago.

The triple shooting on May 13, 2018, took the lives of a couple, Joe Lor, 22 and Gina Xiong, 22, and their 5-year-old daughter, Kayleen Lor, ABC 10 reported.

“Since this happened on Mother’s Day, we never see Mother’s Day the same anymore,” Chang, Joe Lor’s brother, said to ABC10. “We’ve been grieving for so long.”

Four years later, the Stockton Police Department still continues to offer a $30,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest in the unsolved shooting, according to FOX40

Joe Lor was pronounced dead at 11th Street and Belleview Street, FOX40 reports. Xiong and Kayleen Lor were taken to an area hospital where they later died. 

“I feel like I’ve kind of failed my brother because even trying to do my best, I can’t,” Chang said to ABC 10. “I don’t seem to have any leads or information. You know, the detectives and them are giving us this, coming up dead end.”

Chang recently started a nonprofit in his brother’s name in hopes to find new leads in the case. He hopes that no one else will feel the pain that his family has gone through. 

“You know, we really we want justice,” Chang said according to ABC 10. “We want to know why. We want to know. We want some closure. And we want to know whether or not, you know, these guys are still out there harming people or not.”

Although four years have passed, the family members share an important message to never lose hope, ABC 10 reports. 

“For some families, four years is not that long. But to us, it seems like eternity,” Chang said.
