Authorities have issued an arrest warrant for a suspect in the killing last year of an American University professor, according to a spokeswoman for the Montgomery County police department.
Sue Ann Marcum was found dead last October in her Bethesda home. Police said the cause of death was asphyxia and blunt force trauma.
Officer Amy Daum, a spokeswoman for the police department, said Friday an arrest warrant had been issued charging Jorge Rueda Landeros with murder. She did not have any more information, but Interpol has posted information regarding Landeros on its website.
The Washington Post, which first reported the arrest warrant, reports that police believe Landeros is in Mexico and that he had worked as a yoga instructor in the Washington area and other locations.
The Post reports Landeros has been proclaiming his innocence in Internet writings.
A District man who was arrested for driving Marcum's Jeep pleaded guilty last month to unauthorized use of a vehicle.
Court records obtained by the Washington Examiner showed that Deandrew Hamlin, 18, pleaded guilty in D.C. Superior Court.
