Suspect in fatal attack of reporter turns self in

January 13, 2006


— A suspect in the beating death of New York Times reporter David Rosenbaum turned himself in to police Thursday night after TV stations broadcast surveillance images showing his face.

Michael Hamlin, 23, of Washington, D.C., saw one of the broadcasts and went to the 7th District police station "inquiring why his face was on TV," said Metropolitan Police Detective Anthony Paci.

Hamlin arrived at the police station about 5 p.m. CDT. Police then took him to another police station, where he confessed, Paci said.

Earlier, investigators released surveillance videos showing a man who may have used a credit card stolen from Rosenbaum.

Police said the credit card had been used seven times since Rosenbaum's death.

Rosenbaum, 63, died Sunday night, two days after he was found on a sidewalk near his home in Northwest Washington.
