Skull found in NE Washington

By Erica Johnston


A skull was found Thursday on the grounds of the Armed Forces Retirement Home in Northeast Washington, D.C. police said.

A resident walking in the 3700 block of North Capitol Street spotted what appeared to be a skull and called police just after 4 p.m., said Officer Hugh Carew, a police spokesman.

Homicide and Special Victims Unit investigators responded and turned the remains over to the medical examiner’s office for further investigation, Carew said.

That would be NW DC. Please hire back a few of your copy editors!

Forensic testing will likely reveal that it is not an actual human skull but is simply one of Marion Barry's misplaced bongs.

I am sure the Mystery Machine will roll up any moment. Developers trying to scare off the locals?

N Capitol Street is the dividing line between Northeast and Northwest. In the 3700 block there is no place for a person to walk because it is a limited-access roadway with three lanes in each direction and small exit ramps. The eastern side of the road in the 3700 block isn't the armed forces retirement home.

Also, isn't the traditional entrance to the AFRH from Rock Creek Church Parkway NW?

It's hard to have nobody to spend time with.
