What Happened at 701 Quincy Street Northeast?

  • June 1st, 1981

    Excerpts from Wikipedia: Raymond Nels Nelson was bureau chief of The Providence Journal and Evening Bulletin and later a member of the staff of Senator Claiborne Pell. Nelson was found murdered amid scattered newspapers and magazines in his apartment near Catholic University in Washington D.C. at 701 Quincy Street, NE, on June 1, 1981. The reported murder weapon was a large office typewriter. Before police sealed Nelson's apartment and office, a Senate staff member was allowed entry to remove 'sensitive' documents, thereby compromising evidence. Family members, with Nelson the night before his slaying, were not interviewed by police. Decades later, police revealed the crime scene had been staged and called the investigation "faulty police work". In November 1981, Wilmot Robertson wrote that Washington police had "clamped a lid of total secrecy" over the murder. The murder is still unsolved.
