Man Confesses To 1969 Homicide In Park

Prince William Forest Park

National Park News

On March 5th, former Army sergeant Donald Brew, 62, was indicted by a Prince William County grand jury after confessing to a 1969 murder he committed in Prince William Forest Park. Brew contacted the FBI in New Jersey and confessed that he had kidnapped a federal witness who was to testify against him in a larceny and arson case that occurred at Ft. McNair in Washington, D.C. Brew drove the woman from Maryland to the park, where he says he shot and killed her. Without the witness to testify, the charges against Brew were dropped. The witness’s background was somewhat clouded – although suspicions of her disappearance raised many questions, no answers were forthcoming.  Until Brew came forward, there was no evidence of the crime, though he was always considered a prime suspect. Rangers and National Park Service archeologists are assisting Prince William County investigators and the FBI in the continuing investigation.  Brew is currently in custody in Prince William County.
