Metropolitan Police said Monday they are investigating the killing of a Northwest woman found fatally stabbed in the parking lot of the Anacostia Park Skating Pavilion.

U.S. Park Police responded to the 1800 block of Anacostia Drive in Southeast at about 9:50 p.m. Sunday for reports of a woman down. Moments later, D.C. police officers responded to the same location for a call about a woman possibly struck.

The woman, identified as Sonya Lynch, 46, was unresponsive, and when officers examined her they discovered what appeared to be stab wounds. Fire and emergency medical services personnel responded but found no signs of life. The woman was later pronounced dead by a member of the Office of Chief Medical Examiner.
