Police are investigating a homicide inside the Lululemon store in Bethesda.
Saturday morning, an employee opening the fitness clothing retailer discovered two of her co-workers inside the store. One woman, Jayna Murray, was declared dead at the scene, and the other victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment. Both had been beaten.
Police determined the two victims closed the store at nine o'clock Friday night, leaving a shortly after. One of the employees realized that she had left something in the store, but she did not have the keys to re-enter. She called her coworker, who had a set of keys, and they arranged to meet back at the store.
The two women went back into the Bethesda Row store, and some time shortly after, two men dressed in black and wearing masks followed in after them. What police think was initially a robbery turned violent, with one woman murdered and the other sexually assaulted. Both had been physically beaten.

Another horrific set of crimes. Good thing these ladies weren’t armed with guns to protect themselves though...
Let me guess, a couple of Obama voters getting their fair share of the redistributed wealth, and while doing it, get some reparation revenge over whitey. This just happened where I live and is at epidemic levels. The police simply show up to fill out paperwork.
Hey, come on, that might have led to violence. /s
Dumb kid in the back of the room has a question, how did these two scum bags know these two were going back in the store. They seem to know the location and were prepared with ski masks.
Bethesda MD is a liberal bastion and a suburb of WDC. Just how could anything bad happen there? Shocked, I tell you. Shocked.
The perps (aka - hope and change voters) probably took the Metro into that area and were just waiting for a victim to show. That part of Bethesda is very exclusive and high end so I’d be surprised if these guys are local.
Suspicious of the one that survived ..........
That store is in the middle of the densest collection of restaurants in Montgomery County. On a friday night after 9:30 you have throngs of affluent people walking back to their cars. My wild guess is that the two saw the women go into the darkened store and blitzed them, seeing a quick robbery off the street. Chances are that more than a few people passed the store while the crimes were in progress.
Get them out.
These animals don’t deserve medical treatment.
Good question and why kill one and not the other? This is a highly unusual crime - this part of Bethesda is a very high end neighborhood like others have said...I’m hoping cameras throughout the area tracked these pigs.
Sad and shocked - MoCo is really going downhill. Not the ‘leave it to beaver’ town it was 50 years ago
She lay in the store all night probably unconscious and left for dead. I don't think she is a suspect.
-——Just how could anything bad happen there——
Inside job. The rape was consequential to cover the entry
“MoCo is really going downhill...”
I am born and raised in this county. Yes, it is going downhill and fast. Liberalism has spread its cancerous tumorous in this county. The fact that it is a sanctuary county in a sanctuary state has harmed it significantly as well. A handful of years left before my husband can retire and we will be doing the “white flight” trip as well.
These will be hyphenated American offenders.
Strange if this was random. Fitness store not seen as a lot of money. If they had left then came back later, was this just incredibly bad timing?
Another report - funny it is not on the front page of WTOP - you really have to look for it. I guess they don’t want to scare off the clientele at all the restaurants and shops in Bethesda. Montgomery County really does suck.
Good point. I guess there is no shortage of dumb criminals.
New details - The 27 year old called the 30 year old (murder victim) to say that she (the 27 year old) left something in the store and could they please meet back up at the store?
That was revealed on a recent news broadcast. I smell set up.
Thanks for the update. It is strange that one girl was left alive while the other killed.
I was wrong and you were right.
They just announced it on the radio, it was a setup.
Wow! Any more details given? I’m going to google it now but didn’t see this info when I looked earlier today.
I really was kind of hoping I was wrong. I will search for the story and post. Thanks.
There is going to be a press conference in Rockville MD tonight at 7:00 pm.
I actually told several friends that the co-worker (or in my words “the b*tch” did it.) The more I thought about it, the more I was convinced.
Maybe I’m missing the obvious but the police said both were raped so how? Did the coworker just use something to cause damage? I wonder what the motive was...jealousy?
If the forensics were there, it was the boyfriend. Have sex with both and make it look like a robbery/rape.
That's what I was thinking. It will turn out that it was the woman's idea, but she'll be offered probation in order to jail the boyfriend.
Thanks for the picture. I spent some time looking for her picture but wasn’t successful and even now some news sites aren’t posting her mug shot. It will be interesting to find out the motive.
Then WTOP radio added their own scoop which was that perp was transferred from the Georgetown store to the Bethesda store after being accused of theft (info from a police report).
It appears Lululemon may have some liability in this case. Very badly handled. So sad.
