Police ID woman found slain in apartment

Police have identified the woman found slain in a vacant Temple Hills apartment Wednesday as 30-year-old Latoya D. Hall, authorities said.

A worker at the apartment complex in the 4000 block of 28th Avenue found Hall’s body in a vacant unit about 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, said Cpl. Mike Rodriguez, a Prince George’s County police spokesman.

Rodriguez said homicide detectives were called to the scene and determined that Hall had been slain, though he said they had no suspects or motive in the case.

Rodriguez declined to say how Hall died, and he said investigators are still probing how she got to the Temple Hills apartment.

Police said Hall’s last listed address was in the 2400 block of Fort Drive in Suitland.
