WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - The Wichita Police Department is offering a $2,500 reward for tips and information leading to an arrest in the deaths of 62-year-old Huong Pham and her 23-year-old son, Cody Ha.

The two were found dead in their home on November 26, 2017.

Pham’s daughter, who also lived at the residence in the 7500 block of East Huntington, told police she came home and found her mother and brother “unconscious and bloody.” The next day police identified the two as Pham and Ha.

Detectives say they hope the reward will help establish new leads in the cold case.

“We haven’t been able to get any traction on this and it’s been over three years now. There’s two victims in this homicide. We were trying to do something to increase some activity, where we might get more tips or leads,” said Det. Ryan Schomaker.

Schomaker said they have conducted over 70 interviews and checked on phone records, but a motive has not been determined at this time.

“We’ve gotten quite a few tips on (Crime Stoppers), especially early on, but they faded out approximately six months after these homicides occurred,” said Schomaker. “It feels horrible. We’re still looking into this over three years later. We constantly do as much as we can on these cases until there’s nowhere else to go.”

Anyone with information is asked to call WPD Detectives at 316-268-4407, the See Something Say Something hotline at 316-519-2282, or Crime Stoppers at 316-267-2111.
