Friends,

In a shocking shift in this tragic case the surviving “victim” has now been charged with murder:

Store employee Brittany Norwood, 27, was discovered tied and beaten alongside the body of Jayna Murray, 30, who was killed last Friday at the high-end athletic boutique where she worked, police said.

Montgomery County Police now allege that Norwood killed Murray and inflicted wounds on herself to appear as though she were a victim.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Friends,

Just thought we’d take a second to wish you a Happy St. Patrick’s day and suggest a few places to go and celebrate this evening (in no particular order):

1. The Irish Inn at Glen Echo — you know that we love this place and believe that the pub side has a unique authenticity to it. Should have some super live music there from late afternoon.

2. Harp and Fiddle — we are sure that Steve and the whole crew over there will make sure you have a super time!

3. RiRa — very convenient if you are in “new” Bethesda — don’t forget their Chip Shop/ Box specials on a day like today!

Enjoy and please don’t drink and drive!

Police Continue to Review Evidence in Lululemon Attack

Just wanted to pass on some more information pertaining to the Lululemon assault/murder.

Vigil for Lululemon Victims

From our friends at Patch:

Bethesda’s Mindfulness Center is organizing a community gathering and candelight vigil in remembrance of homicide victim Jayna Murray and in support of the surviving victim of Friday’s Lululemon attacks.

The gathering will begin at the Mindfulness Center, located at 4963 Elm Street, at 8p.m. Friday – almost a week since Murray was killed and another female victim was sexually assaulted and beaten inside the Bethesda store.

Tragedy in Bethesda

Dear friends,

Following up from Tom’s post, just wanted to take a moment to offer our sympathy to the victims and families of the Lululemon assault and murder from a few days ago. It is a terrible tragedy and our hearts go out to the two ladies and their family and friends.

The reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the two assailants is, we believe, $135,000, and police are URGING those with any news to come forward.

It is also important that the Bethesda community reviews security in our area. But that is a topic for later.
