The death of a Washington, D.C., police officer who was a Waldorf resident and was charged with production of child pornography whose body was found in the Washington Channel in December officially was ruled a suicide by the medical examiner, The Washington Post reported Friday.

Marc Washington, 32, of Waldorf was arrested after allegations that while on duty Dec. 1, he visited the District home of a girl whose mother had reported that she had run away but later called and said her daughter had returned. Washington went to the apartment without being summoned at 11:40 p.m. While questioning the girl, he asked her to disrobe so he could take pictures, under the guise of him needing to document any injuries, although the girl said she had not been injured, according to a police report.

After Washington left, the girl told her mother what had transpired, and she called the police.

Washington, who was assigned to the 7th District, was found in the river Dec. 10. He had been arrested Dec. 2, shortly after the incident had occurred. His death came shortly after he had been released from jail and placed on house arrest pending trial. Officers received a call about an abandoned vehicle and found the car, along with clothes scattered on the road, near Hains Point in the first block of Ohio Drive, SW.

Washington later died at a hospital.

He had served on the force for seven years.
