SEABROOK, MD. Dec. 29, 2015 ––
The Prince George’s County Police Department made a quick arrest in Monday’s homicide in Seabrook. The suspect is 31-year-old Alex James Jones of the 6000 block of Carter Avenue in Lanham. The victim is 24-year-old Douglas Napoleon Reyes of 100th Avenue in Seabrook.
On December 28, 2015, at about 3:45 pm, patrol officers were called to a school in the 6700 block of 97th Avenue for a stabbing. When they arrived, they found Reyes outside near the basketball court suffering from stab wounds. He was pronounced dead on the scene.
An officer responding to the scene spotted Jones a short distance away and took him into custody. The preliminary investigation reveals the victim and suspect had gone separately to the basketball court. The victim was sitting on a bench near the court when he was approached by the suspect. The suspect confronted the victim before stabbing him several times in what appears to be an unprovoked attack. The suspect then ran from the area. The victim and suspect did not know each other.
Jones is charged with first and second-degree murder. He’s in custody of the Department of Corrections on a no bond status.

SEABROOK, MD. Dec. 28, 2015 — Murder paid another visit to Pretty Gory County. Just a Christmas-break murder in broad daylight in PG County where killers don’t worry about lurking in the dark as the criminal class of this bustling drug-filled paradise of crime attempt to keep up with their killing cousins in Baltimore and DC.
PG Police reports that once officers arrived on scene, they located a male suffering from trauma to the body. He was pronounced dead on the scene.
A man was found stabbed to death Monday afternoon on a school playground in Seabrook, Maryland, police said.
The body of an adult man was found near a basketball court at Gaywood Elementary School, on the 6700 block of 97th Avenue, Prince George’s County police said. Police received a relevant call about four p.m., Officer Michael Owen said.
The victim, whose name and age were not released, had been in the area with others before the stabbing, Owen said.
“We have strong suspect leads,” he said. “We’re talking to witnesses.”
Resident Douglas Reyes visited the scene Monday night and said he was worried after his disabled adult son went missing.
“Some people might want to steal something from him — think that he has money or cellphone or something,” Reyes said. “He has his cell phone — he’s not answering.”
The Good News: Students were not in classes Monday due to the Christmas holiday break. Otherwise, the students would have been an upfront and personal lesson in the crime that sweeps their county every day.
