“Dear PoPville,

Sorry for the depressing subject line, but I’m wondering if you’ve heard anything more about this news story [from the Washington Post]:

“Two people on Friday morning discovered the body of a woman near the William Howard Taft Bridge in Northwest Washington, according to D.C. police.

The cause of death remains undetermined, and Officer Araz Alali, a police department spokesman, said detectives have not yet identified the victim.”

It seems wild that they found a dead body in Woodley Park last week, especially so close to the running trail, but there’s been absolutely no follow-up by the MSM.

My friend and I happened upon the scene when we were running the other morning. It was really disturbing, and made me wonder about trail safety.

Do you know what’s going on?”
