Arrest Made in La Casa DeMorata Liquors Store Murder


We spoke about this terrible incident that took place on the 5400 block of Georgia Ave here.

From Council Member Bowser:

“I am pleased that Metropolitan Police Department officials have made an arrest in the Nov. 7 murder of Rufina Hernandez, the owner of La Casa De Morata liquor store on Georgia Avenue. Now that this assailant is off the street, our community is safer for it. For the family and friends of Rufina, affectionately known to the neighborhood as “Mama,” swift justice is necessary. The community will be anxiously following this case through the court proceedings.”

  • I’m so glad at least one of the killers has been arrested. Though I didn’t know her, people I am close to were frequent customers of the store and were quite upset about the murder of this gentle mother. Though there has been criticism of our chief of police Cathy Lanier, she was at her best on tv telling the other killer that he too would be found and brought to justice.
