The death Tuesday of 12-year-old Montgomery County girl has now been ruled a homicide by the Montgomery County Police Department.
The victim, Jessica Nguyen, found dead at about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday inside her Gaithersburg home, in the 700 block of Raven Avenue Gaithersburg. Police said Wednesday they were called to the home for a report of a child injury. Nguyen suffered "trauma to her upper body," Montgomery police said.
Detectives are continuing to investigate her death, and police declined to provide further details about the circumstances. Police asked anyone with information about the homicide to call the Montgomery County Police Department's Major Crimes Division at 240-773-5070.
This is the 8th criminal homicide reported in Montgomery County this year, said police spokeswoman Officer Amy Daum.
