Paz Veliz Soto Bio – Paz Veliz Soto Wiki

Paz Veliz Soto was stabbed to death in a North Long Beach alleyway; the 78-year-old grandmother visited her late husband’s grave, as she often did, to leave him flowers, her family says.


Paz Veliz Soto was 78 years old.


A 31-year-old Long Beach, Calif., the man was arrested after nearby residents yelled for help following a stabbing death of a 78-year-old woman, according to police.

At 6:18 a.m. last Saturday, Long Beach police discovered Paz Veliz Soto in an alleyway with stab wounds to the upper torso. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

“Detectives believe the victim was in the alleyway collecting recyclables when she was attacked from behind by the suspect,” police stated in a press release. “The suspect stabbed the victim and fled the area on foot after residents began yelling for help.”

After receiving a description of the suspect, officers spotted the man running toward the 91 Freeway near Paramount Boulevard. The suspect was taken into custody; police say a knife was recovered close to where he was arrested.

Kevin Ngo is charged with one count of murder, police said. Online jail records show he is on $2,055,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday. Records do not reflect whether he obtained an attorney to speak on his behalf.

Police did not provide a motive for the attack but stated both people lived in the same condo complex.

Soto had lived in the same home for about 30 years, and her granddaughter wrote on a GoFundMe account page for assistance with funeral expenses.

“Anyone who knew our grandmother knew she was a sweet and kind woman. She was a proud, strong, and independent woman who always pushed forward in life,” the granddaughter wrote.

“While on her morning walk, she was attacked and fatally stabbed. Her sudden death has left the whole community in shock and disbelief. Her bright smile and stubborn ways will be greatly missed within her family and the community she called home.”

Anyone with information regarding the incident is urged to contact Homicide Detectives Sean Magee or Juan Carlos Reyes at (562) 570-7244.
