Forced Entry to the Home
Sue Ann Marcum’s body had signs of trauma when it was found on the first floor of her home. There was a forced entry at her home and signs that a struggle had taken place, notes the Washington Post. She lived in the Glen Echo neighborhood in Bethesda, Maryland at the 6200 block of Massachusetts Avenue.
A visitor at a neighbor’s house saw a Jeep that looked like the one driven by Marcum drive by on Monday morning. The exact time of Marcum’s death is still under investigation.
Was this crime a home burglary turned into a murder or was it a premeditated crime by someone who had known Sue Ann Marcum? Murders in what had previously seemed a safe suburban neighborhood are alarming indeed. And any time a professor is killed it impacts so many lives. Her students must be feeling immense horror over her death.
RIP Sue Ann Marcum. And condolences to her friends, family and the staff and students at American University.
