    DC - David Messerschmitt, 30, murdered in Washington hotel room, 9 Feb 2015 #3

    Mr.Messerschmitt had texted his wife that he would be home in about an hour @ 7:34 PM, the next morning he was found stabbed in a downtown Washington hotel room. Minutes after that text, an unidentified person being sought for questioning in the death walked into the lobby of the Donovan hotel at Thomas Circle, according to surveillance video released by District police. That person in a hooded jacket was seen pacing the lobby and at one point pressing an elevator button. The person is also seen climbing a stairwell. It is unclear if this person is male or female.

    The hotel is about a mile from the law firm where Mr. Messerschmitt worked. His wife says he was acting normally that day. LE is offering a $25,000 reward.

    Here is a LE video of the person from their Youtube website.

    Was stabbed multiple times. When the POI is walking it looks like a male, but in the stairwell pictures it looks female. Whomever it is was hiding their face all around that hotel, they also had gloves on.

    It appears to be a half mixed light skinned AA female to me. Probably from the urban streets. And the text may have not been sent by him. I would check database for female violent offenders recently released. It takes aggression to stab a person to death. Maybe the text meant It's Done. Idk. We need more info. Jmo. Btw: She could be a jilted lover of someone he was seeing on the side.

    Raj. Thanks for the twitter link. It seems like she was impatiently waiting for an acceptance to the army or something. I think she wanted to be shipped as far away as possible. Well since she doesn't have patience than jail will eat her alive.

    LE is looking for additional info associated with the email she used and this request could be on CL (I haven't looked):

    @ Miss Muffett - I disagree. Rape is rape. Trust me - it doesn't matter your sexual orientation to be terrified and horribly traumatized by a rape whether it is same-sex or opposite sex. The personal degradation and fear and helplessness and anguish and humiliation and lack of control over your being and sadness and, well, I could go on - is the same no matter whose committing the rape. And - she will be raped. Initially.

    They haven't. Your post inspired me to check. DM's murder hasn't slowed things down in that forum on CL. There are almost 900 ads posted there JUST TODAY looking for hookups. The titles are....interesting. LOL

    Thank you to everyone for their patience who is helping educate, and expand awareness on the complexities of human sexuality. We are, indeed, complicated creatures!

    With regard to the Victim's wife, I think she will *want* a trial, and will absolutely want to make a victim impact statement directly to the Perp. She seems like a strong woman to me, and it was clear (during the prepared statement), that she is vigorously in pursuit of justice for her deceased spouse.

    I've always heard that in the end, it's the love that trumps any other emotion. In this case, I would say that is true. I truly hope that the arrest, potential trial, and sentencing will give the spouse a sense of justice and closure.
    My posts are opinion and speculation only, and may not be used for any purpose outside of this forum.

    From what I've learned on this case, there are other methods (likely more popular than CL) to solicit "hookups".... and I wonder if LE is looking at those as well?

    Could be Miss Muffet is perusing Grindr and will return with her report??

    I don't think I would want a trial...but that is just me. Depending upon the sentence, I would prefer a plea deal. A trial would be a year or more away and publicize all of David's activities, maybe some we are not aware of. It would be in the news for weeks.

    Jmo
    Just my opinion, of course.
