WASHINGTON (CBSDC) - A fundraiser is now underway for the family of a murdered Northeast deli shop owner who was killed during an apparent robbery.

64-year-old Hae Soon Lim, better known to the community as June, was killed inside her 701 H Street shop, Grace Deli last month, as she was preparing to open her business for the day. Her murder shocked the community, and her son, who said she was planning to retire next year after learning she had a granddaughter on the way.

Police found the register emptied on arrival and later recovered a gun holster from the store, but still have not found Lim’s killer.

In the meantime, the Asian Pacific American Bar Association (APABA) has set up a memorial fundraiser for the family, and is asking for the community’s contributions.

APABA President Christopher Chan says they are currently assisting the Lim family in closing down her well-known and well-liked deli.

To assist the family with the memorial costs, donate here.

So far, almost $1800 have been contributed to the fundraiser, nearing the family’s goal. Chan says the contributions are a great way for the community to show how much they cared for her.
