    Police are trying to track down a former coworker and another man in connection to the death of a dishwasher from a popular D.C.-area restaurant.

    The body of 49-year-old Matias Molina was found on the banks of Rock Creek near picnic grove six the evening of Sept. 2. He had been stabbed to death, police said.

    Police charged 40-year-old Angel Monge with second-degree murder and 36-year-old Jose Cantarero with accessory after the fact. Both men are still at large and should be considered armed and dangerous, police said.

    Molina worked for six years as the daytime dishwasher at Clyde's in Friendship Heights, where Monge also worked.

    “At this time we believe the motive was an argument,” Lt. Robert Alder said.

    Police believe Molina was not killed where his body was found.
