Ah Yee was a well-known and reputedly wealthy merchant who had been doing business in Auburn for more than 40 years. He was found murdered in his store having been attacked with a hatchet and ax. Robbery was the motive. His body was embalmed and had lain in state for two weeks in "a ninety dollar casket," per his obituary. The remains were buried with the plan to ship his bones to China later on.
