Police: Bucks County nail salon owner murdered

UPPER SOUTHAMPTON, Pa. - November 9, 2010

An autopsy performed last evening determined that 30-year-old Annie Huynh was murdered. Her body was found in the bathroom at the nail salon she owns early Monday morning.

Upper Southampton Township police worked into the night Monday looking for clues inside Kim's Nails on 2nd Street Pike in the Pike Plaza shopping center.

Shortly after 9:00 a.m. yesterday, employees arrived for work and found the bathroom door locked. They knew something didn't seem quite right.

Upper Southampton Police Chief Ron MacPherson said, "They knocked on the door and couldn't get any answer so they called for the police. When we got there, the front door was open… we went in."

That's when officers discovered 30-year-old Annie Huynh's body on the floor of the bathroom. At first police did not suspect foul play. Huynh's body showed no obvious signs of trauma, but an autopsy later turned up evidence that the well-known, well-liked nail salon owner had been murdered sometime between 8:00 and 9:20 yesterday morning.

"We believe she was only in there for an hour or so," explained Chief MacPherson.

The cause or manner of death or any motive for the murder is unknown at this time. If you saw anything or if you know of anyone with information, you are urged to contact Upper Southampton police at 215-364-5000 ext 117 or Bucks County Detectives at 215-348-6354.
