D.C. Policeman Accused of Child Porn Found Dead

Marc Washington, D.C. Cop Accused of Child Porn, Found Dead

The body of a D.C. police officer accused of child porn was recovered from the water at Hains Point in Southwest D.C. Tuesday night, police confirm. Officer Marc Washington was pulled from the water just before 9 p.m. Tuesday after U.S. Park Police received a call about a person in the water. Sources say court documents belonging to Washington were found inside a rental car near the scene. Clothing was also found nearby.

Washington, 32, was arrested last week on child porn charges after he visited the home of a teenage girl who had previously been reported missing, ordered her to remove her clothing and took photos of her, all while he was on duty.
