A medical examiner has ruled Walter Reed Hospital patient Walter Reedy’s death was a homicide, the latest in a string of mysterious deaths in the hospital.
According to the medical examiner’s office, Reedy, 57, died at 8:45 p.m.
Monday after suffering an undisclosed type of cancer.
Reedy, a former member of the Navy, had been treated for multiple types of cancer, the office said.
He was not a patient of the Walter Reed Medical Center.
The death was ruled a homicide by the Washington County Coroner’s Office, the coroner’s office said in a statement.
He had been hospitalized since December 8, when he was admitted to the hospital for a respiratory infection.
In a separate incident, a police officer was found dead in his car in the parking lot of the Walnut Grove Hospital in the District.
It was not immediately clear whether the officer had been in the vehicle.
No arrests have been made in either case.
