A Murder in D.C., Part II

More developments in the murder of a NYT reporter resulting from his assault last Friday. It appears that first responders mistook his disoriented condition for mental illness, and didn't realize he was suffering from massive head trauma. It also didn't look much like a robbery...

Police officers, who arrived quickly after the emergency call, thought Rosenbaum had suffered a medical problem, such as a seizure, officials said. They did not realize he was a crime victim, because he was wearing his watch and wedding band, and a portable radio was resting nearby. . .

. . . The problems also affected the police investigation. It was not until early Saturday that police returned to the neighborhood and searched for evidence and leads.

Something doesn't add up. Muggers take his wallet but not his wedding band, watch, or portable radio?

The fact that they would wait a day to collect evidence of a homocide is highly unusual - particularly where the victim was white and was killed in a good neighborhood. Something fishy indeed.

I know that he had done some recent reports on Alito and the Bush NSA/FISA thing but has there been any report on what he was working on when he died?

... UNLESS ... they were convinced early on (prematurely, perhaps, yes) that it was a death by natural causes. Come on...
