Details Emerge in the Murder of David Norwood
The Washington Post has more information on the Easter Sunday homicide of 79 year old David Norwood in the 600 block of C Street, and 21 year old Malcolm Amir Cunningham who is charged with second degree murder while armed in the killing. Norwood was stabbed multiple times, and an anonymous text tip about a man disposing of a knife in a recycling bin led police to the discovery of his body inside the rowhouse. Cunningham had reportedly been living living in the home, but had moved out in the weeks before after making threats to kill Norwood and others.
