Cold case: Mount Dora convenience store reopens 1 year after owners were killed

MOUNT DORA, Fla. — People in Mount Dora are still looking for answers one year after someone shot and killed a husband and wife inside their small market.

Startling surveillance video from that night shows a masked gunman inside the T&N Market barking orders just before he opened fire on the owners.


Even though the owners, “Ken” Trinh and “Tina” Nguyen, seemed to comply, the gunman still opened fire and killed the couple. The suspect took off and vanished.

The police chief said investigators have been working on the case every single day, but they still have not been able to make an arrest, and it’s a hard thing for the community to get past.

The store just reopened Tuesday for the first time in a year under new ownership.

There is still a $10,000 reward being offered for information that leads to the killer.

Since police just released the video statement, we don’t know what kind of tips they’re getting now, but they do have DNA evidence and are still looking for a match.
