Sad news for U street today. NBC Washington is reporting that Coppi’s co-owner, Nori Amaya, was found dead in her apartment at 3636 16th street (MPD’s 3rd district listerv has information as well). Amaya was just 38, and while MPD does not have this information, NBC Washington claims that the police are investigating the death as a homicide. My thoughts go out to her family and friends.

UPDATE: NBC Washington’s article (link above) is now reporting that “Amaya’s death has been ruled a homicide. The cause of death was determined to be strangulation.” This seems to be unconfirmed by police as far as I can tell. So sad.
