Posted on December 23, 2014 by City of PhiladelphiarnL&I Commissioner Carlton Williams warned Philadelphians to ask for proper identification from any L&I inspector who comes to a residentâ€™s door in the wake of reports that an individual has sought entry into homes last Friday, yesterday and today in Kensington and Hunting Park.rnrnâ€œThe Department of Licenses & Inspections is very concerned about reports of an individual purporting to be an L&I inspector attempting to enter our citizensâ€™ homes,â€ L&I Commissioner Carlton Williams said. â€œWe are working closely with the Philadelphia Police Department and other officials to investigate these reports. All citizens should be aware that inspectors from the Department of Licenses & Inspections wear official uniforms and will produce identification and business cards upon request. Inspectors will never request payment or state that a fee is owed.â€rnrnIn todayâ€™s incident, the homeowner said the person posing as an L&I inspector flashed a badge of some kind and then asked for a $91 payment, which the homeowner provided. In other incidents, the person posing as an inspector has informed residents that a next-door neighborâ€™s house is to be torn down or an adjacent lot must be cleaned out and that the phony inspector must gain entry to the occupied residence.rnrnâ€œI urge all citizens to remain vigilant. If you are approached by an individual purporting to be an L&I inspector, please request to see identification. If you have any doubt that the individual is in fact an L&I inspector, you should refuse entry and call 911 immediately. Citizens can also contact L&I at 215-686-2400 to verify whether an inspector is scheduled to be at the location,â€ Williams said.

However, one of Leâ€™s victims miraculously survived and was able to free himself, climb to the banks of the river and call for help. The lone survivorâ€™s account of what happen led authorities to charge Le with numerous offenses including murder and attempted murder.rnrnLe, 43, remains on the run, but his days as a fugitive are numbered with his addition to the U.S. Marshals 15 Most Wanted fugitive list today.rnrnâ€œThe malicious crimes allegedly committed by Tam Le demonstrate his blatant disregard for life and have earned him a spot on the U.S. Marshals Service 15 Most Wanted list,â€ said U.S. Marshals Service Director Stacia Hylton. â€œWe are absolute in our commitment to apprehend Le across both international and domestic jurisdictional boundaries to insure he faces justice.â€rnrnOn Aug. 27, Le, along with members associated with the Vietnamese gang Born to Kill, allegedly held two brothers, Viet Huynh and Vu Huynh, hostage at his Southwest Philadelphia home for gambling away $100,000 they were supposed to use to purchase narcotics. In an attempt to free the brothers and buy some time, another man arrived at the home with a partial payment of $40,000. Le was not satisfied and allegedly decided all three men would pay with their lives. Le and his associates took the men to the 2300 block of Kelly Drive where they allegedly assaulted, and repeatedly stabbed the bound victims, tossing their mutilated bodies in the Schuylkill River. While the victim who attempted to settle the debt survived the horrific ordeal, the Huynh brothers did not. Authorities found their bodies in the river bound with zip ties, riddled with stab wounds, slashed throats, and heads wrapped with duct tape.rnrnThe Philadelphia Police Department charged Le on Sept. 20 with a number of crimes including murder, attempted murder, false imprisonment, and abuse of a corpse. The U.S. Marshals joined the manhunt for Le after he was charged with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution in October.rnrnâ€œGiven the nature of his charges, Tam Le poses a significant threat to anyone he may come into contact with,â€ said David B. Webb, U.S. Marshal of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. â€œTogether with the City of Philadelphia we will utilize our nationwide law enforcement partnerships to apprehend Le.â€rnrnA reward of up to $25,000 is being offered for information leading directly to Leâ€™s arrest. Anyone with information is urged to contact the nearest U.S. Marshals Service office or the U.S. Marshals Service Communications Center at 1-800-336-0102.rnnnrnrn
