Jessica Nguyen, found dead the night of May 31, was a sixth-grader at Gaithersburg Middle School.

Police spokesman Captain Paul Starks says investigators have not established a motive or identified any suspects in the killing of Jessica Nguyen. She was a sixth-grader at Gaithersburg Middle School, and her body was found inside a townhouse she shared with family members.

Starks says police are not releasing any details about the stabbing.

He says investigators have interviewed Nguyen's relatives and friends, and they aren't yet sure whether she was killed by someone she knew or by a stranger.
