A man died over the weekend in a Logan Circle apartment known for holding late-night “Men’s Parties,” Borderstan reports. The death was reported to have occurred inside 1618A 14th Street NW (shown in map above).
Details of the man’s death—-including the cause of death and the name of the deceased—-remain unclear, but Acting Sgt. Kenny Bryson of the Metropolitan Police Department’s public information office confirms that the death occurred sometime “Saturday night or Sunday morning” and that it did not appear to be a homicide.
“At this point there doesn’t appear to be any foul play, nothing of criminal intent,” says Bryson. And as long as the death doesn’t spark a criminal investigation, it’s likely that the man’s name will not be released by D.C. police. “We generally don’t list an outside death that doesn’t have any criminal intent,” he says. “With criminal investigations, we’ll do that, but the name is never released publicly until next of kin is notified.”
A 2005 Metro Weekly story on a fire at the same address reported the apartment regularly hosted late-night “Men’s Parties” and meetings of the “Jack Off Enthusiasts of Washington and Baltimore” (The number listed with the Jack Off club is now invalid; a call to a number listed with the apartment building has not been returned). Also unclear is whether this man was attending a party at the residence, or was in the building for a separate reason.
