Wellington police: Death of young child is suspicious

Wellington police: Death of young child is suspicious

A man named as a "person of interest" Thursday afternoon by Montgomery County detectives in connection to a Bethesda homicide from almost 18 years ago was found dead hours later in his prison cell.

A death investigation is being conducted by the Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services Internal Investigative Division.

Investigators believe a friend of Fuqua's fired one shot, killing Union, before she, the shooter and his associates left, the affidavit said. Police identified Fernando Asturizaga, who taught and sometimes babysat Thresher's daughter, as a person of interest.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing. Asturizaga worked at the Friendship Community School as a Spanish teacher, after-school coordinator and summer camp counselor. She was last seen in May of 2000 in Bethesda. She was initially considered missing, though police now think she was killed in her apartment. Authorities said officers found Asturizaga unresponsive in his cell at about 8:45 p.m. and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police found the body in the backyard of the home and labeled George Oscar Pena, 42, as a person of interest. "Despite the trial that ensued when I came forward about (Asturizaga's) abuse, and the resulting 100-some years that he was sentenced to spend in prison, there are still questions to be answered".
