I noticed this graffiti on my walk to work this a.m. at approx. 8:30. I assumed it was graffiti and not an avant-garde art piece because of the location (near the scaffolding) and the normally pristine conditions of the Phillips. Any thoughts?”

“I noticed that the Drybar in Dupont has been closed for a few days. There is a red notice on the door that it is closed until further notice due to food and sanitary violations. Do you know anything more about that?”

“On 8/1 I lost a gold ring that looks like a little shield with small diamonds on it. It would have fallen off my hand around 9 AM walking down 21st Street NW from R to L (Dupont/West End area). Could also be on the 43 bus. Cash reward if found. It is very sentimental and I appreciate anyone who can help me find it. People can call or text me at 973-202-2192.”

Update from GoFundMe:
“I wanted to thank everyone for their help and support during my recovery. I also wanted to take a moment to thank MPD who has been able to shed some light on the incident. While my initial conclusions from the incident lead me to believe I was a victim of a crime, MPD was able to determine that this was indeed just an unfortunate accident. I want to thank MPD for helping me discover this, and I want to apologize to anyone who feels mislead by my initial assessment of the situation. Thank you all for your support.
If you would like your money back please contact GoFundMe. I understand and I honestly had no idea what happened at the time.”
