Crime in Northern Virginia

There was a comment in the previous post regarding a murder in Northern Virginia. According to the report sent out by Captain Nuneville of the Arlington Police Department here are the details that are being released. It is my understanding this is near Liberty Tavern in Clarendon and that Mr. Diener was stabbed to death. Scary stuff.

HOMICIDE 12/29/09, 3200 block of N. 13th Street. On December 29 at 2:50 am, a deceased male was found in the street suffering from upper body trauma. The victim was identified at Carl Diener, 57, of Arlington. There are no known suspects.

The Washington Post recently wrote that violent crime in the DC area is down. Still does not hurt for us all to be cautious. If you are interested in receiving Captain Nuneville's updates email the Captain at

Thanks for this. I think it's sad how quickly it faded from the news.

To add: not sure how a deceased person can be "found suffering." Anyway...
