Thanks to a reader for sending an update of this tragic murder, in the Woodner building on 16th St, NW, of the Washington Post:

“But more than 24 hours later, after she hadn’t shown up at their restaurant, Coppi’s Organic, Carlos felt a creeping sense of dread. Nori always told him, “Go with your gut!” And his gut told him to get to her apartment, where he and another sister, Blanca, pounded on the door. No answer.

Continues after the jump, warning, graphic description.

They peeked into the mail slot. Darkness. A security guard led them inside, where they flipped on a light and found Nori in bed, on her back, wearing only her underwear, strangled to death. All of her fingernails had been cut off.”
