Suspect arrested in death of nail salon owner


Police have arrested a man from Brentwood in connection with the death of nail salon owner Chungthuy “Tammy” Le.

According to CBS News, Le was killed during a hit-and-run in Walnut Creek, California, on October 1. The 44-year-old was the owner of Lavender Dreams Nail Spa. She was leaving work when a car ran a red light and hit her as she crossed the street.

The Mercury News reports that police have arrested a 29-year-old man on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter and a felony hit and run. The man is being held in county jail but police have not given the case to county prosecutors to file charges.

Le was a wife and a mother of three. She is survived by her husband, two daughters and son. A GoFundMe page has been started to support the family.

“Even now, it’s still difficult to process that she is gone,” her eldest daughter wrote on the page.
