View Larger Map

“Dear PoP,

Just wanted to let you know, there was a murder at the Woodner last night (apparently a woman was strangled), along with a murder 10 days ago in the same building.” Ed. Note: Commenters dispute any such crime occuring 10 days ago.

MPD sent out an email saying that they were investigating a “suspicious death” at the 3600 block of 16th Street on Monday night. They wrote:

“Members of the Third District were called to an apartment at 3636 16th St. NW for an unconscious person. An adult female was found dead of undetermined causes. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will conduct an autopsy to determine the cause and manner of death.”

I hadn’t heard any more details until the above email was sent in from a reader. I’ll be sure to update as more info becomes available from MPD.

Just got this update from NBC4:

“The co-owner of a popular U Street Corridor organic restaurant was found dead Monday night.

D.C. police received a report of an unconscious person at a home in the 3600 block of 16th Street NW at about 9 p.m., police said. They found 38-year-old Nora Amaya unconscious and not breathing.”
