D.C. Police have released surveillance video from the night a transgender person was murdered in Northeast.

The video was taken at about 8:30 p.m. Thursday night. It shows a man walking calmly across East Capitol Street away from the bus stop at East Capitol Street and Sycamore Road where 23-year-old JaParker Jones had just been stabbed to death.

Police say a motive has not been established, but they want to talk to the man in the video. They would also like to speak to anyone else who may have walked or driven by the scene that night. Witnesses who have information that leads to an arrest could be eligible for a $25,000 dollar reward.
