June 19-23 was the period where we remember the 33rd Anniversary of the brutal beating death of Vincent Chin. The killer, Ronald Ebens, has never spent a day in prison, but owes the Chin estate an amount that was more than $8 million in 2012 and continues to grow with interest.
My recent requests for an interview had been unanswered.
But before the anniversary week passed, I made one more attempt to reach Ebens.
And he answered.
I wanted to know if he was sitting on recently received money that should rightfully go to Vincent Chin’s estate.

I was on the road yesterday but did not forget that it was the 31st year after the death of Vincent Chin.
On a day when Edward Snowden continues his trek for freedom, another Giants loss, and a week of monumental constitutional decisions, there was little time on the news spent marking Chin’s story.
Check out my piece on the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund blog to read my column based on the interview with Chin’s killer, first posted last year, the 30th anniversary of his murder.
