This Week in Crime: Police seek witnesses to Reston murder

Fairfax County Police are looking for two possible witnesses to Saturday night's murder of a 26-year-old Reston man on a bike path near Colt's Neck Road.

Fairfax police want to talk to a blonde woman and a man who may know something about a murder mystery.

Sources say 26-year-old Jose Aguilar was found dead along a Reston bike trail over the weekend and so far, the woman and man are the only known witnesses.

"Detectives are anxious to identify and talk to those folks to see what, if anything, they may have seen or know," said Officer Don Gotthardt of the Fairfax County Police Department.
According to police, here's the description of the potential witnesses:
One subject is described as a Hispanic male, 17 to 20 years old, about 5 feet 6 inches tall, with a slight mustache. He has black hair below his ears and big, dark eyes. He was wearing black, baggy pants and a white, baggy shirt. A second subject is described as a white female, 17 to 20 years old, with long, straight, blonde hair.
Police told Channel 7 that they do not believe the muder was gang-related, much to the disappointment of anonymous commenters everywhere. By the way, good luck with the embedded video below, the audio of which -- when it actually works -- sounds like it was broadcast from the dark side of the moon via CB radio.


  1. So my question is: If there were only two witnesses and the police don't know who they are, how do the police know there were two witnesses??!
