I want to know why he was found at the scene at 5:47am and was pronunced dead at the scene at 10:05am. What happened here? Did I read that wrong? Oh my.....looks like there will be an investigation inside an investigation.....RIP Ronald Robinson.

police responded to the 2900 block of Knox Place, SE at about 5:47 am, where they found a male suffering from apparent blunt force trauma inside of a trash bin.

The victim, who was identified as 43-year-old Ronald Quintin Robinson, of the 3100 block of Buena Vista Terrace, SE, was officially pronounced dead on the scene at 10:05 a.m. by a member of the staff of the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner

it's just you; victims often remain on the scene for hours until they're pronounced due to all of the investigations conducted by various agencies including the Medical Examiner's Office. A crime scene must be protected, preserved, thoroughly investigated, documented and canvassed. Around 4 hours was actually fairly quick. So, yeah, it's just you.

This is the reason I moved myself and his daughter out of the District of Columbia when she was 1st born. This is the nations capitol and the only person that seems to be safe is the president of the United States. Please help me understand how the crime rate has not gone down since 1994 when I left the city?

I don't know who wrote the previous comment about my grand daughter but for your information, Paula does not live in Yorktown and my grand daughter was never born in the District so stop using such a sad event for your pleasure. This is upsetting and you shouldn't be so vindictive about this issue or her and her child.

VAMomma I agree with you...Ronald (as I call him "Uncle Quin") should have been taken to a hospital..Why was he suffering until the pronoucement of his death 4 hours later? Do you save the evidence before you save the person? I don't get it? If they would have gotten Uncle Quin to the hospital...maybe there wouldn't have been a homicide to investigate. RIP Uncle Quin. You'll be sorely missed.

He was probably already dead when they found him. How did I reach this conclusion?
a. If he was alive they would have called EMTs and rushed him to the hospital.
b. Criminals usually leave victims for dead in dumpsters.

She wasn't being nasty so I don't understand were the bitterness is coming from. Basically she is stating that no one is self in the District of Columbia

When you read the news article it clearly states that a man was found suffering inside of a trash bin. If Uncle Quinn was suffering why wasn’t he transported to the hospital right away? Why wasn’t he pronounced dead inside of the Hospital? What was the hold up? Normally when someone is suffering the paramedics are called to the scene right away. What happen here? My uncle was brutally beaten and put inside of a trash bin and it took them almost 5 hours to run an investigation after it was said that he suffered. So you mean to me that the police never contacted the paramedics to try to resuscitate him which means he laid inside of that nasty trash bin until he died. The hospital formally known as Greater Southeast Hospital was less than five minutes away. Yes it needs to be an investigation on top of an investigation unless the news reporters reported some information wrong.

What are you talking about?
A. They said he was suffering
B. Yes they leave them for dead but sometimes the victims can be saved

You almost never think that a person would stoop so low as to do anything of a depraved nature. Even Alfred Hitchcock's horror films didn't depict anything that would turn your stomach. Mr. Hitchcock just narrated the story. The person that did this must had a vendetta or he was just deranged.

Quintin, as I called him, was a good man...no one should have suffered as he did for any reason and from the "news" reports that I've read, they were all saying different things...they said the police was called to that location twice. Why were the called to that location twice? Why wasn't he found the first time? He could have been saved. But who do you believe? What do you believe? I am hurting and my heart is aching God only knows but I feel his day will come when these people are caught. Quintin, I WILL miss you, rest in peace baby. We love you.

I would expect that coming from you. You obviously have no criminal justice knowledge. "Suffering" in the criminal justice sense just means to be wounded or injured (usually at the time of death). In almost every story that somebody is shot,stabbed or beaten and then dies they are "suffering". Here is the perfect example in this recent story.

Again in the context of a crime "suffering" just means to be afflicted by a wound or injury that is more often than not fatal or at least serious.

Ron was a very kind person and a fun co-worker. My heart goes out to his daughter, wife, and family. I pray that you are able to make peace with your loss as a family. May God bless you and may Ron rest in peace.

"Leave it alone" Pessoa, don't take it so personally; let people grieve in peace without you getting upset with the fact that the word "suffering" is not used in the context that you are use to it being used or you want it to be used.
