Man fatally slashed in Pr. George's

By Martin Weil

A man was fatally slashed Saturday morning in Prince George's County in what appeared to be the eighth homicide in the county in as many days.

Police said the man was found about 8 a.m. in an apartment complex parking lot in the 1400 block of University Boulevard.

The man was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead shortly afterward.

No information was immediately available about the circumstances of the incident.

And to co-sign on docwhocuts, don't buy property in Northern VA either. You will be fodder for gangs like MS-13 and other hostiles.

why aren't these murders being looked at as possibly the act of a serial killer. This isn't a thing to take lightly and brush off due to location. These cases fit a profile and pattern of something more sinister and I hope people will stop playing with it and demand a serious investigation.

If Northern Virginia is too dangerous for you, you might need to consider moving to the wilds of Alaska, or maybe Iceland, because I'm not sure how much safer you can get in this country. Even the most "dangerous" barrios in Northern Virginia are safe for most people to walk around in during most hours.

Be on the lookout for a person who is so-so height, who knows weight, could be any color from the Crayola crayon box, wearing black jeans and a pink hoodie. Caution, this person may be carrying a knife, gun, duct tape, cyanide and is assumed to be dangerous.

Way to go PGC, eight dead in eight days why not try for a complete 365 for 2011.

=============================================
Alexandria is a hot spot. Look at the crime report over the past thirty days at http://www.crimereports.com/ Just enter Alexandria, VA in the "My Area" text box. This past summer a friend of mine was assaulted in old town by a burglar in his house. A couple of his neighbors have been car jacked as well.
