NBC-4 has the story: Nori Amaya was found dead in her apartment in the 3600-block of 16th Street NW. Police have apparently ruled her death a murder by strangulation. Amaya was the co-owner of Coppi’s Organic Restaurant at 1414 U Street NW. Commenters at the Prince of Petworth and at Mount Pleasant DC Forum are saying that Amaya lived at The Woodner.

According to NBC-4: “Nori Amaya’s death has been ruled a homicide. The cause of death was determined to be strangulation.”

    Why would anybody financially solvent enough to own a business live in that dump?

    Nori was one of the most generous and gracious people I have ever known. I have been enjoying Coppi’s for over 13 years, and Nori’s constant smile, laugh (which she did often) and sincere interest in the many who love her was both unique and wonderful. I am profoundly saddened that we have lost such a beautiful and loving soul. I pray law enforcement brings to justice the person responsible for this horrible crime. My deepest condolences to Carlos and the entire Coppi’s family.
