The DC Police have released the name of the dead man who was found Saturday morning, July 14, in the alley between P and Church Streets NW, on the west side of 17th Street NW. He was 50-year-old Narciso Neria Sanluis of Northeast DC. Police were unable to provide a cause of death at this point.
However, foul play does not appear to be a cause. Neria Sanluis was found fully clothed and near the side of a building.
Around 6:30 pm on July 14, the DC Mayor’s Office of Community Engagement sent the the following tweet: “EOMONE@EOMONE1 @borderstan We hear man found this morning is considered a natural death. No foul play. Latino male. May or not been homeless.”
An online obituary for Neria Sanluis indicates his body was taken to Mexico for internment.
