John Ha Fatally Shot His Wife Linda Vu and Then Himself in Fast Food Drive-Thru: Deputies

A 49-year-old man apparently shot his wife who was 20 years younger to death in a Jack in the Box drive-thru lane in Stanton Saturday afternoon and then turned the gun on himself.

Over the weekend, the county coroner identified the couple as John Ha and Linda Vu, 29.

Ha had left a message with a friend indicating that he was going to harm his wife, Orange County Sheriff's Lt. Jeff Hallock told City News Service.

Their bodies were found inside a car about 3:30 p.m. Saturday behind the fast-food joint at Chapman Avenue and Beach Boulevard.
