The Herndon Police Department is investigating a homicide that occurred last Friday in the 600 block of Clearwater Court.
Police were called to a victim with a stab wound to the chest. The victim was later identified as 45-year-old David Puryear of Clinton, Maryland. Puryear was taken to the Reston Hospital where he died of his injuries.
On Tuesday, 29-year-old Stephanie Fyfe of Herndon was charged and arrested for his murder. Detectives determined Fyfe was Puryear’s girlfriend.
“We’re just looking at their relationship and seeing if we can put things together from here, some more witness interviews and interview with the suspect as well. Hopefully, we’ll be able to develop a reason behind the instance,” said Public Information Specialist Lisa Herndon of the Herndon Police Department.
Fyfe is being held without bond at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center.
