A police report has been filed in the weekend death of a man at a Logan Circle sex club known for hosting “Men’s Parties” and meetings of the “Jack Off Enthusiasts Club.” The report was taken on Sunday, Oct. 4 at 5:26 a.m. In the report, the sex club, located at 1618 14th Street NW, is listed as a “tavern/night club.” The exact location of the death is listed as a “basement/laundry room” and “stairwell.” The narrative section of the report details the emergency response to a report of a man in “an unconscious condition” inside the apartment:
On the listed date and time, [the reporting person] reports that he discovered [the victim] in an unconscious condition inside of the listed location. District of Columbia Ambulance #21 responded to the scene and discovered that [the victim] had no signs of life. [The victim] was pronounced dead on the scene by (OCMI) Mli Mack on October 4, 2009, at 0835 hours. District of Columbia medical examiner’s cruiser #5 responded to the scene and transported C-1 to the District of Columbia Medical Examiner’s Office. On the scene: Det. Smith (homicide), homicide squad #3, Commander McCoy (CR.28), Watch Commander Lt. J. Monk (CR.300), Officer R. Nitz (Mobile Crime)
I have a call out to the 3rd District to account for the three-hour difference between the time the report was taken (5:26 a.m.) and the time the man was pronounced dead (8:35 a.m.).
Yesterday, Lieutenant Vanessa Moore said that the victim may have broken his neck following a fall down the stairs. Today, Beverly Fields, spokesperson for the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, said that the victim’s cause of death is listed as “blunt impact injury to the head.” The exact “manner of death” and a toxicology report on the victim are still pending.
