WASHINGTON — Police have clear video of a man they say was likely involved in the killing of a D.C. woman, who was found stabbed multiple times last month.

Investigators are calling the man a suspect in the killing of 52-year-old Maria Antoinette Evans, which happened in the pre-dawn hours of March 29.

D.C. police released video on social media that shows a heavyset, bearded man wearing a light-colored sweatshirt. In the video, the man is seen with a unique gait, carrying a knife in his right hand and walking with a woman behind a fenced area on Oakwood Street in Southeast.

D.C. police confirmed the surveillance video then cuts to the man walking out from behind the fence alone.

After the man leaves the scene, police said he boarded a nearby Metrobus. On bus surveillance, he’s seen sitting quietly with no indication of what investigators believe just happened.

Police are offering a $25,000 reward for a tip that leads to a conviction.
