Murdered Girl Found in Columbia Heights Trash Can

Terribly sad news in my neighborhood, this afternoon:

D.C. police say they have found “what appears to be a human body” in a trash receptacle in Columbia Heights.

The apparent female human remains were found Monday in an alley in the 1000 block of Fairmont Street NW.

D.C. police say the body appears to be that of a teenage girl, and that she appears to have been murdered.

Sources said the victim appeared to be 16 or 17 years old.

I was scouring local blogs and news sites for additional information, which I did not find…what I did find were comments attempting to link this with the fact that Gray won instead of Fenty:

Is it just me or has the shootings / bodies gone CRAZY since Vince won the primary? I swear I have heard more in that short time than I have in the 3 years I have lived in DC.

This situation is unfortunate enough, there’s no need.
