Dear PoP – Logan Circle Homicide?

View Larger Map

“Dear PoP,

There was a homicide in the alley between 11&12th st. and M&N streets NW today. Seems like there isn’t a lot of information as of now. My girlfriends building backs up to this alley and there was a note on the building advising residents not to use the back door. This brief article was posted on the Washington Post website.”

An MPD press release went out yesterday:

Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch are investigating the fatal stabbing which occurred in the 1200 block of 11th Street, NW.

On Monday, November 8, 2010, at approximately 4:00 pm, Units from the Third District responded to the 1200 block of 11th Street, NW for the report of an unconscious person. Upon arriving, they discovered an unresponsive victim suffering from stab wounds. DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services personnel arrived and did not find any signs consistent with life.

The decedent is identified as 54 year-old Miguel Ventura of Lanham, Maryland.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the police at (202) 727-9099 or 1-888-919-CRIME (1-888-919-2746).
