Man strangled in Columbia Heights apartment

By Erica Johnston

A man was strangled Wednesday night during a dispute in a Columbia Heights apartment complex in Northwest Washington, D.C police officials said.

Police were called to Columbia Heights Village in the 2800 block of 14th Street for a report of an assault about 7:30 p.m., said officer Hugh Carew, a spokesman. Officers found a man unconscious in a third-floor apartment.

The victim was taken to Washington Hospital Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Two law enforcement sources said police believe the man was killed during a dispute with another man.

Since the police have no idea who did it isn't this sexist profiling? Why couldn,t a powerfull woman with big hands have done it?

After all; women can do everthing a man can do? Right?

As a man and innocent victim of this profiling I will feel marginalized for at least a minute? Sigh!

We'll make you detective for a year. You can try to solve the non-stop homicides in the District & PG County. See how you do. Dealing with the idiot thug/criminal-lovers who give the police a hard time 24-7. Lay off the law enforcement personnel. Stupid, drunken idiots are always getting into arguments about every little thing from A to Z. Problem is a lot of them have guns.
