(DC CRIME STORIES) The D.C. police officer who was charged with taking nude photos of a runaway teen girl was pulled from the chilly waters off Hains Point and has died, the department confirmed early Wednesday.

U.S. Park Police received a 911 call at about 8:15 p.m. from a male caller that man was in the water at Hains Point, between the East Potomac River and the Washington Channel.

Police found a some clothing and parked car that was connected to Marc Washington, the patrol officer who was released from jail Monday on child pornography charges.

Dozens of police officers, a helicopter and several high-ranking officials rushed to the scene. Metropolitan Police Department rescue boat crews rescued from the roughly 48-degree waters an adult male who was taken to a hospital for treatment.

During a press conference late Tuesday, D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier would not confirm that the body was that of Washington and said investigators she did not yet know the origin of the 911 call.

“There’s a lot of speculation,” Lanier said. “Whether this was a call from someone associated with the Metropolitan Police Department, we don’t know.”

Park Police and D.C. police are investigating. Read more...
