Nearly three decades after a 39-year-old woman was strangled to death in Southeast, D.C. police have arrested and charged a man with her murder.
Debra McManus, of Southeast, was found dead on Oct. 23, 1993, in a wooded area near 4th Street and Trenton Street, police said.
On Thursday, police arrested and charged 58-year-old William Ransford, of Southeast, with second degree murder in her death.
According to an autopsy, McManus died after being choked and her death was ruled a homicide.
Police didn’t offer any information about a possible motive or what lead them to charge Ransford in the murder decades after the crime.
Here’s a map of the area where the crime happened.
