Fort Dupont Park murder victim ID'd
A homicide victim found shot in Southeast Washington last week was identified Tuesday as a 43-year-old classical singer from Temple Hills who frequently performed in the chorus of the Washington National Opera.
Don Diego Jones, of the 2100 block of Anvil Lane, was found dead in Fort Dupont Park about 4:30 p.m. on June 8, D.C. police said, adding that his body was on the ground near his parked car. The slaying remains under investigation.
Like others in the chorus of the Washington National Opera, Jones was not an opera employee but an independent performer hired on an as-needed basis, said Michelle Pendoley, a spokeswoman for the opera.
She said the size of the chorus varies depending on the production and that Jones, a lyric tenor, had appeared regularly in productions since 1996.
