More arrests in case of missing DC woman
Update, 9:10 p.m.:
Three more suspects, ages 16,18 and 23, have been charged with murder in the suspected killing of 18-year-old Latisha Frazier of Southeast Washington, who has been missing for six months.
D.C. homicide detectives said they think Frazier was assaulted Aug. 2 during a dispute in the 1700 block of Trenton Place SE, then abducted and slain. Her body has not been found.
After earlier arresting two suspects, police on Wednesday took two more into custody. They were identified as Anneka Nelson, 16, who has been charged as adult with felony murder for her alleged involvement in the abduction, and Cinthya Proctor, 18, charged with the same offense.
On Thursday, members of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested Laurence Kamal Hassan. He is charged in a warrant with felony murder (kidnapping) in Frazier's death. Hassan is 23, and lives in Southeast.
Earlier this week, Johnnie Sweet, 17, was charged with felony murder in the case. Another suspect, 23-year-old Brian A. Gaither, was charged with second-degree murder last month.
Investigators said a witness told them that Gaither was angry because Frazier, of the 4200 block of South Capitol Street SE, allegedly had taken money from one of his friends.
