Jerome A. Washington, R.I.P.

Shanon Murphy of The Flint Journal reports on an April 23 murder:

"Police found Jerome A. Washington, 40, of Flint, dead inside a home on Lapeer Road near Owen Street about 1:15 a.m. Wednesday.

"Police said Washington did not live at the home and would not say why he was there.

"Washington may have been dead for several hours before police were called.

"The suspect, whose name is not being released, turned himself in to police about 9 p.m. Wednesday, said Lt. Tim Johnson."

Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
