Alexandria police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the man shown in this photograph. He is considered to be a potential witness in the murder of Nancy Dunning.

Dunning, a real estate agent in Alexandria and the wife of Alexandria Sheriff, James Dunning, was found murdered in her Del Ray home on W. Mt. Ida on Dec. 5, 2003. The autopsy revealed that she was killed by a gunshot to the upper body.

The evidence indicates that Dunning was specifically targeted by her killer and that the murder was motivated by an event or relationship in her recent past.

Detectives are seeking the help of Dunning’s personal friends, associates, business owners, acquaintances or neighbors in an attempt to reconstruct as many details as possible regarding her activities and relationships during the past several years.

Detectives are seeking help in identifying the man in the photograph because he may be able to provide valuable information. Anyone who recognizes this man should contact the Criminal Investigation Section at 703-838-4711.

A reward has been established.

“We can say that the reward fund has reached $100,000,” said Lonnie Rich, who is administering the fund. This reward will be given to the person or persons who provides information that leads to an arrest and indictment in this case.
