23-year-old man arrested in stabbing death of DC jogger

23-year-old man arrested in stabbing death of DC jogger

The suspect nabbed in the stabbing murder of a jogger in Washington, DC, is a 23-year-old resident of the capital with a criminal past, police officials said Thursday. He was reportedly charged with first-degree murder while armed.

Police say they do not believe Martinez knew the suspect before the attack, and found the knife used in the attack at the scene.

Surveillance video from the restaurant, which we are not showing due to its graphic nature, shows the woman coming inside the restaurant covered in blood. Martinez appeared to be trying to alert customers to her attacker outside as some customers ran out of the restaurant. Horrifically, a bleeding Martinez ran to a nearby business after being stabbed but was unable to be saved. Upon arrival, officers located an adult female suffering from multiple stab wounds.

She was transported to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Crawford's motive remains unknown and police will investigate whether he had any substance abuse or mental health issues in the past. Even the intro to her FB page reads "Life begins by stepping outside of your comfort zone". This is a very isolated incident.

Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser called the apparent random attack "damaging to all of our senses of safety". "This is a woman who should be going to work today".

Martinez' death came just a week after she announced she was engaged, her family said in a statement to local news outlets.

"We are deeply saddened by this senseless tragedy. Not only was she an avid runner, but she was a devout Christian, a wonderful friend, and a driven professional", it read.

"You never know what can happen because this was a random act of violence", said Francisca Cativa, who was walking her daughter to school.

She was in the process of planning her wedding to fiancé, Daniel Hincapie, a DC bank executive.

As NBC reported, Martinez and her boyfriend got engaged just last week, her family said in a statement. We ask that you respect our privacy as we grieve the passing of her handsome soul and inform her friends and family of this bad news. She managed to enter a carryout restaurant nearby, where community members, including a nurse, Newsham said, attempted to tend to her wounds.

"Simply put, Wendy was fearfully and wonderfully made!"

One witness, who claimed to have known Crawford for about four years, told police that Crawford was "an avid user of the synthetic narcotic K-2".

Martinez worked as the chief of staff for FiscalNote, a software, data and media company headquartered in Washington.
