It was so sad. I’m sure there are other words to describe what I saw Wednesday morning. But that word comes to mind.
The body was covered with a white sheet. It was lying on a grassy area beneath the Duke Ellington Memorial Bridge that carries Calvert Street NW. Portions of Connecticut Avenue NW and Beach Drive were cordoned off.
The only movements were the flashing red lights of police cars and motorists directed around the scene by officers.
