A Birthday Party, Lots of Drinking, Then a Murder With a Knife

WASHINGTON, DC: Twenty-four year-old Rahul Gupta, a student at George Washington University, has been accused of murdering his friend, Mark Edward Waugh, who was a student at Georgetown University Law School, early Sunday morning.

Gupta, Waugh, and Gupta’s girlfriend — who has not been identified by police — were partying on Saturday in celebration of Gupta’s birthday. They drank at various locations around Silver Spring, MD, before going back to Waugh’s apartment, also in Silver Spring.


At Waugh’s apartment, they drank some more. Gupta’s girlfriend told police she blacked out from the alcohol, and that the next thing she remembers is being woken up by Gupta and frantically told to call 911 immediately. Police were called to the scene at 3:30 a.m., where there was blood all over the floors and walls. Waugh’s body was on the floor, unresponsive, with multiple cut wounds on his body and forearms, indicating “defensive-type” wounds.
