Police investigate suspicious death in Franconia

Fairfax County police have made an arrest in a homicide that occurred Friday morning inside a Franconia town home Friday, a spokesman said.

Police identified the suspect as Eric C. Kewder, 34. He is a roommate of the man who was killed, police said. Police said he was charged with murder.

Officers responded to an emergency call in the 6000 block of Hydrangea Drive around 10:20 a.m., said Officer Bud Walker, a Fairfax County police spokesman.

Officers found the body of an adult male inside the home, Walker said.
Police did not immediately release the man's identity or the cause of his death.

Pablo Alvizuri, a neighbor, said three roommates -- all men -- live in the home. He said he had not seen signs of trouble at the house in recent weeks.

Police said they arrested Kweder around 2:30 p.m. within five miles of the town home. They said calls from the public helped lead them to Kweder.
