Arrest made in stabbing death of recently engaged DC runner

Wendy Martinez, a 35-year-old tech executive was on her evening jog on September 18 around the streets near her Washington D.C. home when a total stranger pulled out a knife and stabbed her. But it was too late and she died shortly after.

Crawford was arrested Wednesday night and charged with first-degree murder while armed in connection with the stabbing. He was ordered to remain under juvenile supervision until he turned 21, but was let go at one point when he was 20 and vanished from the group home for a month, the Post reported, citing court documents.

"It is more likely a random act than anything else but we're going to look at all possibilities", he noted.

A knife was recovered near the crime scene, but Police Chief Peter Newsham, who was among the first to respond to the scene Tuesday night, declined to describe the weapon believed to have been used in the attack.

Crawford was arrested Wednesday night after he was found at a park by officers, who then took him in for questioning. We also want to encourage the community to please contact the police with any information that may lead to finding justice for Wendy. "She was cherished by a lot of people". "Wendy lived the happiest seven days of her life".

Shocking video footage later emerged of Martinez stumbling into a Chinese restaurant and asking for help, with a wound to her neck.

The security surveillance video also showed a possible suspect running from the scene.

Daniel Hincapie, who had just proposed to Martinez a week earlier at the famous Spanish Steps in Washington, said he was devastated by her death.

It was an intense game, it was a fantastic game by him, to be honest, so that's the best news and so now we know more about that. Whether that had any influence or not Firmino walked into Melwood on the morning of the match and told Klopp he was fit to play.

According to her Facebook page, Martinez was employed by FiscalNote, a technology management company.

He was wearing a distinctive mustard color shirt, which was not wearing at the time of his arrest, Newsham said.

The family of slain D.C. woman, Wendy Martinez, has spoken out about how they are coping with her untimely death.

"The entire FiscalNote family is shocked and deeply saddened", the company said in a statement on Twitter.

Cora, her mother, however, confided that she had already forgiven the murderer of his daughter: "My heart is broken into a thousand pieces, but I have forgiven this man. (...) My heart has no room for hatred and bitterness".

"Wendy was not only lovely and not only brilliant and a hard worker. she was joyful, funny, loving and always there", said Moore, adding that Martinez was "just determined to live out the American Dream". Her family described her as an avid runner.

Wendy Martinez's family previously released a statement to Fox 5.
