Read Navarro’s statement below:

My heart goes out to the family of the victim of last night’s homicide in Wheaton. Montgomery County Police Department (MCPD) did a tremendous job responding to this incident and quickly bringing the suspects into custody.  MCPD continues to investigate the circumstances that precipitated this incident.

Montgomery County is making a tremendous infrastructure investment over the next few years in Wheaton, which on the whole, continues to be an extremely safe place to live, work and raise a family. With Wheaton redevelopment kicking off in just a few short months, it is more important than ever that our residents are safe and secure in their community.  I have tremendous confidence that our outstanding police force, working in partnership with Metro Police, will redouble their efforts to keep Wheaton safe.  We will not let one violent incident deter us from making Wheaton—and all of mid- and east-Montgomery County the best it can be.

    Nancy finally came out of hiding! Does she ever go to Wheaton to shop? This week’s murder made the news only because it’s one of the more serious crimes in what is a daily deliverance of violence in the Nancy’s backyard. The reports of almost-daily strong-arm robberies, assaults, and other violent crime get swept under the rug, but it’s all there, just like this week’s murder.
