Teens Admit to Murder & MedStar’s New Local Home (Demo)

Two teenagers arrested in Bladensburg man’s death.
MedStar to acquire Southern Maryland Hospital Center in Clinton.

I’m looking at the pictures of 17-year-old James Murray (left) and 16-year-old Andre Attaway (right), wondering what is wrong with them.  Were they born monsters? Where are their parents? What kind of mind says pick up a shovel and beat a man to death, then leave his lifeless body off to the side as you drink liquor and chase one another with that same shovel.  They gave statements indicating they killed 54-year old David Krupski of Bladensburg.  On July 28th, at around 11:00 p.m., Bladensburg Police officers responded to the 5200 block of Newton Street, Bladensburg, for disorderly individuals drinking and chasing each other with a shovel.  Upon their arrival, officers discovered the lifeless body of Krupski,  of the 5200 block of Newton Street, Bladensburg on the side of the road suffering from trauma to the upper body.  Mr. Krupski’s body was found a few hundred yards away from his home. The investigation revealed the suspects robbed, chased and beat Krupski.  The medical examiner in Baltimore is conducting an autopsy.
MedStar announced that it will acquire Southern Maryland Hospital Center (SMHC), making it MedStar’s 7th hospital in the state of Maryland and its tenth overall.  The Washington Post reports that MedStar’s acquisition of SMHC will provide the hospital with the capital needed for new construction as well as with access to clinical services, technology, clinical trials and other services.  Hopefully, this will mean the beginning of better care and progressive health care offerings for Prince George’s County.  Coupled with the new University of Maryland Medical System’s revamping of Prince George’s Community Hospital, MedStar’s acquisition is a move in the right direction for a county where most of us look to hospitals in DC for our major surgeries and physicians.
