    DC - David Rosenbaum, 63, NY Times journalist, robbed & killed, 6 Jan 2006

    A 23-year-old maintenance man from Southeast Washington was arrested last night and charged in the robbery and slaying of New York Times journalist David E. Rosenbaum, police said. They also were seeking one other person.

    Michael C. Hamlin was arrested shortly after 6 p.m. when he walked into the 7th District police station in the 2400 block of Alabama Avenue SE, which is in the block where he lives, and asked why "my face is on TV," police said.

    Only an hour earlier, police had released to the media images from surveillance videotapes taken at a CVS store in Southeast Washington and an auto parts business in Prince George's County. Police said the tapes showed Hamlin using or attempting to use Rosenbaum's credit cards shortly after Rosenbaum was robbed near his home in Northwest Washington on Jan. 6.

    Hamlin walked into the police station last night wearing the same dark jacket, with his first name sewed onto a chest patch, that he had been wearing in a surveillance tape, police said.

    Police drove Hamlin to the department's violent crimes branch, where he provided detectives with a statement on the slaying, police said. He was charged with felony murder.

    After talking with Hamlin, police declined to discuss a motive for the attack other than robbery, and they declined to say why the mugging turned violent. But they did say that the attack appeared to be random and that Rosenbaum had not been targeted.

    Police also declined to say whether Hamlin provided them with any information on the second person involved in the attack.

    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?

    Police Question 2nd Person In Journalist's Death

    Police are questioning a second person in the death of an award-winning journalist, News4's Pat Collins reported.

    Officials said the man is being questioned in the death of David Rosenbaum but has not been charged. Sources told News4 that the person turned himself in to authorities Friday morning.

    Investigators said Hamlin used the stolen card to charge about $1,300 worth of merchandise at gas stations, drug stores and auto parts stores.

    Investigators said they recovered a dark green vehicle in Southwest, NBC4 reported. The license plates begin with "516" and detectives said they believe it is the one in which the suspects were riding last Friday night when they attacked and robbed Rosenbaum.

    Police impounded the car and said the tires and hubcaps are some of the items the suspect bought over the weekend using Rosenbaum's stolen credit cards. Police credited the stores with helping find the suspect. http://www.nbc4.com/news/6060888/detail.html

    From January 2007:

    One of the men who killed New York Times journalist David E. Rosenbaum last year was sentenced yesterday to 26 years in prison.

    Originally charged with first-degree murder, Michael C. Hamlin, 24, could have faced a life sentence had he not agreed to plead guilty to second-degree murder and testify against his cousin and co-defendant, Percey Jordan...

    Rosenbaum's family, frustrated by what they say has been a lack of candor from the city and the hospital, filed a $20 million lawsuit in November in D.C. Superior Court, claiming he was a victim of official negligence and medical malpractice. But yesterday was not about the emergency medical workers who assumed that Rosenbaum was a drunk old man who had taken a fall, or about the hospital emergency room workers who let Rosenbaum languish on a gurney, oblivious to his grave head injuries...

    Percey Jordan Jr. was sentenced last week to 65 years for the murder of retired journalist David Rosenbaum...

    A Washington, D.C., Superior Court convicted Jordan of first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit robbery and robbery of a senior citizen last October.
