    Who fatally stabbed Vanessa Pham, and why?

    Exactly a year has passed since the 19-year-old woman's murder, and still those questions have not been answered.

    The reward for information has been increased by $20,000, and police have released new photos of Pham's car -- a 2008 white Toyota Scion. Investigators hope the pictures will jar someone's memory and produce some leads.

    Pham was last seen at the Fairfax Plaza shopping center in Falls Church. A surveillance camera captured her car as it left the parking lot.
