Suspicious death in Wheaton now under investigation as homicide

Montgomery County Police responding to a "suspicious situation" call yesterday afternoon in the 2700 block of Arcola Avenue found a deceased 72-year-old woman inside the residence. The home was that of the deceased, and is located in the Wheaton Crest neighborhood west of Georgia Avenue.

Her body, found around 4:19 PM Wednesday, showed evidence of trauma. Detectives ruled the death suspicious, and are now treating the case as a homicide investigation.

  1. Is there any update about the Wheaton July 4th assault which you reported on July 7th? Did that victim survive? Thanks.
