    DC - Benjamin Washington, 29, Washington DC, 18 Dec 2004

    My brother Benjamin Washington, jr. a Washington DC resident for the past several years of his life. Father of 6 children ages range from 4 to 12 years old, lovable uncle, and son. The night he was murdered he had planned to get married on January 2nd 2005. My brother was murdered from gunshots to his upper body. His body was found on 5306 Woodacres Drive, Suitland Maryland on December 18, 2004. It has been six months still no motive or witness that can tell what happened to him. It has been a rough time for our family to cope with the loss of someone that impact the lives of everyone he touched. My brother was a giving man, he never portrayed himself as selfish. It is hard to hear people say good things about my brother,but these same people refuse to help the police solve his murder. My brother was last seen on 48th street NE, Washington DC on his way home to see our mother when his life was taken from him. We believe he was abducted from this area, carried to Suitland maryland and dumped. He may have known his killers.
    Another scenario that he may have been killed in the surrounding area of 48th street NE or inside of the vehicle he was transported in.
    absuolutely no one wishes to speak with the police about what they may have saw or heard. I know people are afraid, have a some run end with the police or it is just not their business to get involved, but how long can we go on like this pretending it never happened?

    i never thought i would have to deal with a murder in my own family, but now it has thrown me into the spotlight to fight for victims right to be heard. The police are up in arms with increasing murders that happens every 48-72 hours
    in DC or PG that pushed my brother's case further to back of the line to get solved. I keep hearing "not enough manpower, or cooperation from witnesses or other jurisdictions).

    I want justice for my brother, ,but what could you do when no one will listen!
    if anyone have any information regarding his death. Please come forward to talk about it or you could contact Prince George's County Police Department at (301) 772-4925 or crimes solvers 1-866-411-tips. You do not have to give your name, just the information. Please help a family bring closure to their lives.

    My Brother's Day

    I am so sorry to hear about your brother. He sounds like a wonderful man, and I can tell you loved him very much.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    thank you

    thank you, the last time i saw him is when i came to visit our mother a week before he passed away. he likes to teased me with nicknames he had for all of us. i did not get to say anything to my brother. i never got to say goodbye to him. the police saw him before we did, and what was left for us was his still body draped in a tan suit for burial. it was horrible for us, and continues each day. if i could get back that day and every day before then. i would have been close to him like a big sister should. he wanted so much to please me, and i took for granted his support to show me he is a dedicated father and good friend, but he knows one thing about me that i will never give up to bring him justice. each day i fight for him. because i really do love him very much.

    Suitland, Maryland

    There is also another unsolved homicide in Suitland - a case that has been open for over a year. It involved the murder of two women (grandmothers) who ran a small flower shop off Suitland Road. They were both shot in the shop. Another case of senseless violence.

    I'm sorry about your brother. I'm also sorry that none of his so-called "friends" will help in the investigation. Good luck to you and please keep us posted.

    Hi

    It was a very good idea to ask for help from Websleuths. There are lots of members who no doubt are in the "know" so to speak. I'm not one, but they are here.
    I too, am very sorry. I bet he's very happy and touched that his sister is telling the world about him.
    Beesy Was Here

    So I held my head up high
    Hiding hate that burns inside
    Which only fuels their selfish pride
    We're all held captive
    Out from the sun
    A sun that shines on only some
    We the meek are all in one
    Creed
    My Own Prison

    Right, i remembered that case. the detective still do not have a lead to go on but some article graffiti writing on the clothing of the killer. it is always the case when no one seen or heard anything. Right now i am targeting the persons of interest regarding my brother's death. This person raymond travers was the last person that seen my brother alive, and he may have orchestrated, or committed the murder himself. i am mentioning this person by name because of witness accounts. When questioned by the detectives, raymond claimed to not know or have any aquaintance with my brother, but why was your number in his cell phone address book?
    my brother's cell phone address book was well organized with a list names of everyone he came in contact. if your name is listed in his phone book, you are more than just a stranger on the street. You are a friend with a conncection to him in some way.
    Would you place a name of a person in your book if it was just a hi greeting frequently?

    Raymond denied knowing my brother until he was confronted with his name being in my brother's cell phone address book, he recanted his denial, but, denied ever having any dealings with him at all.
    I am very suspicious of his recants. the word on the street is that raymond and my brother was quite close, but my brother later hung out with a raymond's relative cousin that came from out of nowhere within a month of his death witnesses' accounted saying. no one seems to know him but first name Chris, Ron or Ronald, last name could be Jones. I am very baffle about this
    if you would like i could tell you details about the conversation i had with the dc detective handling the shaquita bell's case. the detective stated that her case is open record, and of course he has been so certain that michael dickerson did it, but without a body and the witnesses' statement before the grand jury this case is cold.

    Exclamation Benjamin Washington Jr., My Brother's Day

    My Brother's Day
    My brother Benjamin Washington, jr. a Washington DC resident for the past several years of his life. Father of 6 children ages range from 4 to 12 years old, lovable uncle, and son. The night he was murdered he had planned to get married on January 2nd 2005. My brother was murdered from gunshots to his upper body. His body was found on 5306 Woodacres Drive, Suitland Maryland on December 18, 2004. It has been six months still no motive or witness that can tell what happened to him. It has been a rough time for our family to cope with the loss of someone that impact the lives of everyone he touched. My brother was a giving man, he never portrayed himself as selfish. It is hard to hear people say good things about my brother,but these same people refuse to help the police solve his murder. My brother was last seen on 48th street NE, Washington DC on his way home to see our mother when his life was taken from him. We believe he was abducted from this area, carried to Suitland maryland and dumped. He may have known his killers.
    Another scenario that he may have been killed in the surrounding area of 48th street NE or inside of the vehicle he was transported in.
    absuolutely no one wishes to speak with the police about what they may have saw or heard. I know people are afraid, have a some run end with the police or it is just not their business to get involved, but how long can we go on like this pretending it never happened?

    i never thought i would have to deal with a murder in my own family, but now it has thrown me into the spotlight to fight for victims right to be heard. The police are up in arms with increasing murders that happens every 48-72 hours
    in DC or PG that pushed my brother's case further to back of the line to get solved. I keep hearing "not enough manpower, or cooperation from witnesses or other jurisdictions).

    I want justice for my brother, ,but what could you do when no one will listen!
    if anyone have any information regarding his death. Please come forward to talk about it or you could contact Prince George's County Police Department at (301) 772-4925 or crimes solvers 1-866-411-tips. You do not have to give your name, just the information. Please help a family bring closure to their lives.
