Officers responded to the location and found Theresa Hungerford, 45, of the 1600 block of E Street NE, inside or nearby, suffering from apparent stab wounds.

Friday, July 23, 2010, at approximately 10:45 am, members of the Homicide Branch arrested Nathaniel Phillips, 36, from Northeast DC, for the stabbing of Theresa Hungerford and charged him with Murder II while Armed.

I found this police crime tape in the alley behind the street- one section of which appears to have been tied into a bow.

I observed the broken toy gun at this site.

This small remnant was all that I could find of a memorial.

A prayer for you and your family. Peace.
