Female jogger stabbed to death one week after getting engaged

Surveillance video released by police of a person of interest in Wendy K. Martinez's Sept. 19 death

He got down on one knee and proposed to Wendy in a local park just last week.

Heartbreakingly, in her final days, Martinez had been trying on wedding dresses as she prepared to marry her fiance, Daniel Hincapi.

Martinez was stabbed Tuesday night. Surveillance video shows her passing and glancing back at a man on the street.

Martinez was an avid runner known to run several miles across the city.

Martinez's grieving mother, Cora Martinez, also spoke out at the vigil, saying she forgives the man accused of killing her daughter.

Additional details are to be made public Thursday morning by Mayor Muriel E. Bowser (D) and Police Chief Peter Newsham.

Mr. Crawford, who lives in Northwest, has been charged with first-degree murder while armed in connection with the fatal stabbing of Ms. Martinez, 35, who lived near the scene of her attack in the 1400 block of 11th Street NW.

The murder of a recently engaged 35-year-old woman who was jogging near her home may have been racially motivated, investigators said.

Wendy Karina Martinez, the jogger killed in Washington D.C. on Tuesday, had hoped to qualify for the Boston Marathon.

- A suspect wanted for stabbing a woman to death in Logan Circle has been arrested, D.C. police announced on Thursday. She appears to be talking to the customers inside before she collapses. So, I just said, 'We believe in the greatest judge, the ultimate person that is going to give what is deserved.' So, I am asking my family to do the same.

Police say Mr Crawford has a criminal history, and they will be examining him for any mental health issues. "Our thoughts and prayers are with Wendy's family and friends", a company statement said.

Martinez was chief of staff at FiscalNote, a Washington-based company that specializes in helping companies determine how government decisions influence their businesses, according to the startup's website. "Wendy will be missed by the CARECEN community but will live on through the students she helped to achieve US citizenship".

Based on surveillance footage and tips from the community - which Newsham said were key to the case - detectives were able to quickly identify the suspect as Anthony Crawford. "I'm sure that doesn't bring any level of comfort to the Martinez family". Also, don't ever run in an area you're not familiar with, and let a friend or loved-one know before you leave. "We don't see crimes very much like this, even during the course of my career", Newsham said.
