A 41 year old found dead on September 23, 2016? I got this.
9/23/2016 = 9+23+(2+0+1+6) = 41 (USA = 41)
Remember, 41 is the 13th prime. This death comes in 'L.A.'
LA = 12+1 = 13
The flag for the United States of America was sewn at 239 Arch St. and this year the flag is 239-years old, coming into existence June 14, 1777.
As for Mr. Hong, he might have had the wrong last name.
The number '44' connects to the name of the man who owned the home where the 41-year old was found dead.
Remember, 44 and 71 are the only numbers that sum to 144.
Further, notice the actor was from Canada.
