Suspect Caught in Logan Circle Stabbing of Wendy Martinez

Wendy K. Martinez

Police arrested Anthony Crawford, 23, in connection with the stabbing and have charged him with first-degree murder while armed.

Authorities are desperately searching for the suspected attacker, last seen in blurry CCTV footage wearing a mustard-coloured shirt, dark-coloured trousers and sandals with white socks.

Police say that homicide detectives found Crawford at a park on 14th and Girard street.

Wendy Martinez, 35, became engaged seven days before she was killed near her home - and her mother said she'll be buried in the recently-purchased wedding gown, according to NBC Washington.

A second witness spotted Crawford walking near the intersection of 11th Street and P Street NW - where Martinez was fatally stabbed - moments before the attack.

So heartbreaking! Washington DC tech exec Wendy Martinez was brutally stabbed to death on her nightly jog by a stranger. She appears to be talking to customers inside before she collapses.

DC Police Chief Peter Newsham said a nurse in close proximity attempted life-saving efforts before emergency crews arrived.

According to police, the attack was unprovoked and the motive remains unclear.

Girl bitten in second shark attack at Australian harbour in 24 hours
A rescue helicopter that scrambled to pick her up was just 15 minutes away from the scene due to an earlier operation. There's been a second shark attack in less than twenty-four hours at The Whitsundays region in North Queensland.

Police are searching for one assailant who fled the area.

Cora Martinez said the week following Wendy's engagement was the happiest in her daughter's life.

Police said Crawford is not homeless, has been uncooperative with them, and Martinez was not robbed.

Authorities said they received tips from the community after a surveillance image was released to help identify the suspect.

Kristina Moore, a friend who spoke at the news conference on behalf of Martinez's family, described her as "joyful and amusing and loving and always there". "Everything you hope that a daughter and a friend could be", her family said Wednesday.

On Wednesday, FiscalNote released a statement saying it is "shocked and deeply saddened" to learn of Ms Martinez's death. She was also excited to be planning her upcoming wedding to her fiancé Daniel Hincapie. Her mother, Cora Martinez, said her daughter was an ambitious and vibrant young woman.

Martinez was chief of staff of the software and data company FiscalNote. We also want to encourage the community to please contact the police with any information that may lead to finding justice for Wendy.

"Hug your friends, your family with two arms - not one", said a friend of Wendy's.
