Guam - The Korean woman who was struck and killed by police officers while crossing the Kmart intersection over the weekend has been identified as Soon Ae Chai. Family members identified the 47-year-old at the Chief Medical Examiner's Office.
Guam Police Spokesperson Officer Allan Guzman says Chai was a former resident of Tamuning who left her home along Chalan San Antonio about one month ago. "It was discovered that the individual apparently strayed away from family and somehow became homeless. She was known to have been staying at her church for a couple weeks, and was just recently involved in the recent auto-pedestrian," Guzman said.
Guzman says an internal investigation on officers Donnie Pangelinan and Gerard Perez who struck Chai while patrolling the area is ongoing. Both officers remain on administrative leave.
