Uddin was bound with duct tape and shot in the head in the back room of the East Germantown gift and sundry store he was minding for his ailing father. The murder occurred almost exactly seven years to the day Mr. Uddin came to America from Bangladesh. Mr. Uddin’s mother sits in front of the store crying over the death of her son as Philadelphia police work the crime scene.
