Fullerton Coach Killed: Monica Quan And Fiance Shot To Death

Fullerton Coach Killed

Fullerton basketball coach Monica Quan and her fiance were killed Sunday night in California, according to police. At this time, officials have not reported any suspects or motive pertaining to the tragedy.

Authorities confirmed the identities of two fatal gunshot victims found yesterday as 28-year-old Monica Quan and her 27-year-old fiance Keith Lawrence. The couple was discovered shot to death in a car outside their condominium complex.

The Orange County Register reports that authorities were alerted to the couple’s location after witnesses saw Lawrence slumped over his car’s steering wheel. When police arrived at the scene Quan was found in the front passenger side with her fiance beside her in the driver’s seat.

While few details have been released to the public, officials believe the couple had been dead for some time before being discovered. The fatal incident appears to have taken place where the bodies were found. The couple had just recently moved into the building.

Irvine Police Lieutenant Julia Engen has stated that the evidence at the scene indicates that Quan and Lawrence were not the victims of a robbery, making the cause of their killing a mystery for now.

The Associated Press writes that Keith Lawrence and Monica Quan were graduates of Concordia University where they each played basketball. As an assistant coach at Cal State Fullerton, Quan was in her second season in the position.

Counselors will be on hand for staff and students-athletes at the university as the community tries to cope with the loss of two of its beloved members. University president Mildred Garcia released the following statement in regards to Quan’s death:

“The loss of any member of the Titan family causes our community great grief, but the loss of one of our own under these circumstances is indeed tragic and heart-wrenching. We hope that Monica’s family and friends will feel and be comforted by our support during this difficult time.”

In the meantime, Irvine investigators will continue their search for the person who killed the Fullerton coach and her fiance.

    This couple were not robbed. So my guess is that it was personal, someone they new and was not happy about their impending wedding. Unless it was a drug deal gone bad.

    reason why because there ain't no JOBS! when you're hungry and unemployed with your house foreclosed that's going to make you angry to kill!

    You think 'banging' is gonna help? There were MANY killings when Cal had full employment. You sound like you just looking for a reason to kill.

    Usually it is easier to get a job when you have an education. In case you were not aware, most, in fact ALL employers require you to be able to speak. Ain't No is just gettho talk. Speak and write with the FREE education you were given – go back to school and GET A JOB!!!

    Thesby Tolbert, are you for real! Wow so you're saying murder is justiable because people have no jobs and thier homes are going into foreclosure. Dude, you sound like a fool. It's not the ones who are loosing thier homes and the unemployed that are going around killing people. It's those who feel that there owed a better quality of life without working hard and sacrificing for it. It's those who chose not to work a low paying job and work thier way up or felt they"re to good to work at fast food or on a garbage truck, which by the ways pays well. Or just wanted to stand on the corner with shaggy ass pants and look like a fool. No I'm not racist I'm an angry black single female who has worked hard to support her family and lost somethings on the way and bounced back without going out robbing or killing someone in the process.

    What are you Fuckin Stupid? There is NEVER a reason to kill. If you are unemployed and hungry GO TO THE SALVATION ARMY!!! Or GET A JOB!!! McDonalds is ALWAYS hiring you worthless piece of shit!

    I think if more people could feel and have empathy for their fellow human being…..murder would not exist. Too many people allow themselves to be cut off from emotion and reality. Our culture actually hates sensitivity and considers a person weak if they exhibit it. I feel sorry for you to have such bitterness to make a comment like that. Hopefully, you can understand that there is no justification for murder unless in self defense.

    Thesby, you dumb mother fucker. I hope you get killed by the same fate. I will post an ignorant insensitive comment, then piss on your grave.

    I speculate it was personal, whether a vendetta with one of them or even a family member; Monica's dad worked for LAPD at one point. Seemed like a very nice couple with a lot going for them. Not sure how they could afford to live in an expensive condo complex where some places sold for as much as $1 million. I'm bet there are plenty of cameras in that building and parking area. As for gang initiation, doubtful; parking lot was not convenient; criminals like opportunity and convenience and want a quick in and out.

    Thesby, I'm thinking Police need to look into your sanity. You sound like just the type of quack that goes whacko and starts shooting innocent people. Maybe we could actually PREVENT a sick murder/suicide before it happens this time.How about you comment on your own side of this great Nation and stop posting idiotic comments about a state you don't know anything about. Freedom of Speech does not give you the right to air your ignorance, or did your Governor/President not teach you that? You make me embarrassed being of your species.
