    Why isn’t anyone talking about how similar this is to the homicide at 13th & N Jackson on 12/29/09? That guy was also found stabbed to death in the road around 3am on a weekday morning.

    Totally agree with Kristy. Way too similar to the late-night stabbing in Clarendon in late December. Between this and the Ballston abduction, rape & “left for dead in MD” situation a few weeks ago, it’s getting scary around here. Where is the police presence and why is no one connecting the dots??
