American University professor Sue Marcum’s murder is still more mystery than anything else, but the police are one step closer, having recovered her stolen car as part of a chase ending at New Jersey and M St NW, and ending with the vehicle crashed into a utility pole. The driver is not currently thought to be the killer, and faces charges of unauthorized use of a vehicle, according to the AP.
Marcum’s body was discovered in her home in Bethesda yesterday, when her boyfriend went to check on her after not hearing from her. Marcum taught Taxation at the Kogod School of Business at AU after a career working for the Ringling Bros., Barnum & Bailey circus in their taxation division. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family.
