Bich Ha and Huei Hann Pan were Vietnamese refugees that settled down in Toronto, Canada. The couple both found employment at an auto manufacturer and worked all hours to provide for their children - Jennifer Pan and Felix Pan. From a very young age, Jennifer and Felix were enrolled in all sorts of classes and activities. Jennifer excelled in piano and ice-skating, much to the delight of her parents. Additionally, she was the perfect student, always getting straight A’s in her report card.
However, when Jennifer did not receive valedictorian in 8th grade, she decided she would stop dedicating her entire life to her studies and decided that she would live a lie to impress her parents instead. When she failed to graduate from high school, she lied to her family and said she passed with flying colours and we accepted into the University of Toronto to study pharmacology. To maintain this charade, Jennifer said she had won tuition scholarships; she even forged report cards and brought home textbooks and notes.
In reality, Jennifer would be spending time with her boyfriend, Daniel Wong, and working in a restaurant. As her lies began to crumble around her, Jennifer’s parents forbid her from seeing her boyfriend and confiscated her mobile phone, even though she was now 24-years-old. Jennifer soon began to ponder what her life would be like without her strict parents - she would have freedom to do whatever she pleaded, she thought. Jennifer decided she would hire somebody to kill Bich and Huei.
Daniel put Jennifer into contact with David Mylvaganam, Lenford Crawford and Eric Carty. On 8 November, 2010, Jennifer unlocked the front door of the family home before retreating to bed. In the middle of the night, the three men entered and shot Bich and Huei. Afterwards, Jennifer called 911 and wailed that three men had broken in and killed her family and tied her up. However, unbeknownst to her, Huei survived his wounds and was able to tell authorities that his daughter had been in on the whole thing - he had witnessed her chatting with the three men who killed his wife and attempted to kill him.
After being found guilty, they were all sentenced to life imprisonment.
