The Metropolitan Police Department arrested a suspect July 23 that they believed is involved in the disappearance of a 24-year-old woman.

Darnell Sterling, 55, was arrested on second degree murder charges. The arrest stems from information the police gathered while investigating Olga Ooro’s disappearance on the  300 block of Massachusetts Avenue, NW..

She has been missing since July 18 when officers found a juvenile male who could not find his mother.

According to a press release, an investigation revealed that the disappearance is related to domestic violence. Because of the suspicious circumstances of the woman’s disappearance, the department’s homicide division is now investigating.

Ooro’s remains have not been located.

The case is still under investigation.

The department is offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information that leads to an arrest and conviction in this case or any other homicide case in Washington, DC. Anyone with information should call the police at 202-797-9099. Anonymous information can be sent to the department’s Tip Text Line — 50411.
