PGPD Charges Tremayne Crawford in Connection with Forestville Homicide

Tremayne Antwan Crawford

The Prince George’s County Police Department has charged a suspect in connection with a homicide in Forestville. The victim was 28-year-old Theodore Van Weeks, III of the 3300 block of Walters Lane in Forestville. The suspect is identified as 27-year-old Tremayne Antwan Crawford of the 6900 block of Bost Lane in Clinton.

On June 2, 2015, at about 6:20 pm, patrol officers were called to the 3300 block of Walters Lane for the report of a stabbing. When they arrived, they located the crime scene, but not the victim. A few minutes later, officers learned a relative had driven Theodore Van Weeks, III, to the nearby Maryland State Police Barrack in Forestville for help. He was rushed to a hospital where he died a short time later.

Throughout the course of the investigation, Crawford was developed as a suspect. On June 7, an arrest warrant was obtained charging him with first and second degree murder. Last night, he was arrested in the 2800 block of 17th St. in Northeast Washington. He is awaiting extradition to Prince George’s County.
