Son Suspected in Stabbing of Parents Dies; Father Dead
The tragic story about a Jan. 19 double stabbing in a Q Street home got worse.
Fifty-six-year-old Bradford Nelson Elliott suffered a heart attack and died at a hospital Jan. 20, according to the Metropolitan Police Department, before being formally charged with homicide.
Bradford Elliott was the only suspect in the stabbing death of his 88-year-old father, Le Roi Elliott, Jan. 19. The 81-year-old mother, Vaughn Elliott, was also injured during the same attack, which took place at the Elliotts’ home in the 3300 block of Q Street, NW, across from Volta Park. They had lived there since the mid-1980s.
Bradford Elliott was reportedly mentally ill and lived in the Q Street home with his parents. It was Vaughan Elliott, who called 9-1-1 around 6:30 a.m. on Jan. 19. Bradford Elliott answered the door with blood-soaked hands when police arrived and was arrested, MPD told the Washington Post. He was being treated at a hospital, while in custody, and a Jan. 22 court appearance had been scheduled.
