Attacker Fatally Stabbed Jogger on D.C. Street, Fled Scene

Family say she was excited to be planning her wedding to the DC bank executive.

A knife was recovered near the crime scene, but Chief Newsham, who was among the first to respond to the scene Tuesday night, declined to describe the weapon believed to have been used in the attack.

Investigators said they are looking for a man wearing a long-sleeved, mustard-colored shirt coming down to his thighs and dark-colored sweatpants.

Police in Washington, DC, are hunting a man believed to have stabbed a woman to death in an apparently random attack.

Her attacker fled - as a bloodied Martinez stumbled into a Chinese restaurant begging for help.

She was transported to a nearby hospital where she succumbed to her injuries, police said. The suspect was last seen wearing a mustard-colored shirt, dark-colored trousers and sandals with white socks.

Her family released a statement after the shocking murder, describing the "light of our lives" daughter who was killed. She and her fiancé, Daniel Hincapie, were engaged last week.

MPD is offering a $25,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of Martinez's killer.

She was an avid runner.

Ms. Martinez worked as chief of staff for FiscalNote, a Washington, D.C. -based software company. "Wendy was an invaluable member of our team and a vibrant member of the community". She was working her dream job with a fast-growing start-up and got engaged last Wednesday.

She had Master's degree in Latin American studies and conflict resolution from the prestigious DC area college.
