Everyone says Chan was a beautiful person, but the dirtbag who killed her? I don't see any statments about him, but you can BET he has a past record of some sort. This poor girl didn't deserve to die.

i knew them both. i live in the same building as she did. this wonderful women she was a great person. her kids are lil angel very cute and playful... she didnt deserve this no one does, this is tormenting me very much knowing that you live right next to the apartment this took place i walk by it everyday and seeing and imgaining everything that happened that morning make me very sick..... I feel very saden of this but my question is why does this has to happen. why does someone has to be murdered for this community to do something... for this community to talk about abuse this should be a topic everyday... and cdc they could of prevented this from happening as well they allowed this man in here indangering every child in the building but once again cdc only cares about money all they care about is making sure there apartment have tenets. that all they should of done back ground check on mr brown and they would of found out he is well known in dorchester... and they can not sit there and say they didnt know mr brown was living there because before he monved in he helped paint the apartment before they moved in now let see .... Rip Sarin chan you will be missed you will always be in our hearts. and thoughts... And we will keep prying for your your lil angels..

Sarin was an absolutely beautiful girl. Her two precious kids went to daycare with my daughter and they were absolutely wonderful. When i first met Sarin while she was dropping off her kids, she was such a happy and uplifting person. I didnt formally meet Will, but she was always bright eyed when i saw her so i never expected that this would happened. She looked so happy all the time, her and will fighting never crossed my mind. When i saw this on this news, i broke down, and called the daycare worker, and she was a mess as well. R.I.P Sarin Chan, we love you.

how many times has Brown been in the hands of the courts? They should have put him away a long time ago.

Check out sweetznynot on My Space dot com and you will see that she wasn't mother of the year. Nothing excuses taking another life, but stop making this troubled young woman out to be a saint. DSS involvement from day one, known to police in Salem, then in Dorchester along with William A Brown - who also has a history of mental illness.

On the My Space pages she posed half nude, posted her phone number asking men or women to contact her for a hookup. Lots of traffic in and out of her apartment and she was never out of bed until after noon. "Snoop" William was the one who took care of the kids so he must have some redeeming features.

Bottom line is these kids should never have been in that home, and this family should never have been in a CDC property. Neither one of them could pass a CORI check.

There's still a gang member not on the lease living with his girlfriend at that property and it would be no surprise if there was more violence in the future. CDC is the worst slumlord in Fitchburg. They let all this go on just like in the Boston properties that Cornu manages. Mission Hill ring a bell anyone?

I just looked at the above posters "myspace" page...guess her "status" comment answers it all for us right there...

"im so glad we fuckin broke up i cant stand u ur stupid"

Sounds like the two have a long history of immaturely instagating one another...how sad the only REAL victims are the 4 and 6 yr olds who will never live normal lives after witnessing this...

Let's not start a bashing ceremony and remember what this is all about, a women was murdered. Whatever her lifestyle, choices in men, or financial status was. She is a human being who had her life taken away far too early .. Her children bare the scars of a senseless act none to be judged by someone who holds this kind of information. If we where to bash shouldn't we bash you????

my prayers goes out to the kids, family and co-workers, I as a domestic violence victim myself want to let victims know that they need to seek help,and get out of a bad reletionship, thank god i survive, but there are others who unfortunatly wont make it,we need to think on our children, and whats best for them, even though i did not know this young lady i feel pain inside of me, R.I.P Mrs.Chan.

This is a tragedy. I checked her myspace and she seemed like such a giving girl. I particularly liked the shots of her bent over showing her undies. The pic of the $50's spread out on the toilet ic great and dressing up the little boy as a gangsta rappa was a nice touch. I can't believe that living in the kind of lifestyle someone got killed. Although the tatoo on her breast is classy.

I made no comments regarding anyones "lifestyle, choices in men, or financial status". I did, however, comment that it is sad her children are the real victims due to parental immaturity. You are pretty quick to assume however that everyone is judging her "lifestyle, choices in men, and financial status"....sterotypical hypocrite much?

I retract my last statement, it's not in good taste. But maybe now these kids will find a nice family and have a great life. It had to be tragic for them to witness the death of their mom who loved and raised them.

Unfortunately the only good thing that will come out of this is that those children now stand a chance that they didn't have growing up in that environment.

If what is on her myspace page is any indication, they've probably seen a lot more than murder in their short lifetimes.

Sorry it took her death to get the children out of there but as a Buddhist she must have believed that Karma is a B*tch.

You are wacked. No one deserves to die like this poor woman did. You need to go stick your skull that is too thick to contain any brain matter into the toilet and flush!

Hypocrite is knowing specific details of someones life and not seeking help for them or bringing it to someones attention when you feel the situation needed so much attention. Sad that people like you breed pigs of society, Lets hope your words don't scar more than there mothers actions.
