Wichita police have no suspects in the city’s most recent homicide.
Pheng Xiong, 35, was found dead in his bed by his roommate at about 10:50 a.m. Saturday at 830 S. Erie, Lt. Randy Reynolds said Monday.
A police report states Xiong suffered a “very large laceration” to his neck. A screen was damaged at the house northwest of Lincoln and Hillside, the report states. Investigators aren’t sure whether that was a point of entry for the perpetrator.
Observers saw the 17-year-old roommate come outside the house and start screaming. Reynolds said she was later picked up by a woman at the Dollar General near Lincoln and George Washington Boulevard and dropped off on South Seneca.
The woman who picked up the roommate is not considered a suspect, Reynolds said. They just want to talk to her as they piece together information in the case.
Xiong is the 15th homicide victim of the year in Wichita.
