MOBILE, Ala. - On January 8th, 2008 multiple agencies, investigators and volunteers began an all-out search of the Gulf Coast by land, air and sea, looking for Danny, Hannah, Lindsey, and Ryan. The massive recovery effort stretched from Mobile Bay into the coastal waters of Louisiana.
"You know it really captured the whole community and the whole southern part of the United States if not the whole United States there for awhile," said Mobile County Sheriff, Sam Cochran. Cochran was in charge of the search that lasted almost two weeks.
Despite public speculation at first, Cochran says he knew without a doubt Lam Luong killed his four children. "We had a number of witnesses that put every little piece of the puzzle that showed unequivocally this man threw those babies off the bridge."
More than one year after the crime, Lam Luong was convicted Thursday, on five counts of capital murder.
Sheriff Cochran says it was emotionally draining, but he'll never forget the outpouring of community support. "Even though this has been over a year this has really been pretty orderly. We'll be happy to get him out of our jail, but I commend everybody for the good job they've done and I expect it to continue," he said.
Lam Luong now faces a punishment of life in prison without parole or the death penalty.
It's the final phase of a crime that investigators always expected. "No surprises for us in law enforcement, just a tragedy that we wished would not have happened," Cochran said.
