Police radio transmissions indicated that a responding officer found an open door at the back of the house, but police would not say if the door had been forced open.
Neighbors told WRC that Glyer’s family moved into the home just a few months ago.
The victim’s family told WUSA that Glyer was the CEO of DonorSee, a humanitarian crowdfunding platform.
DonorSee posted on its Facebook page on Friday that its “team is in shock.”
Glyer tweeted at about 10 p.m. Thursday that “The day we end extreme poverty … will be one of the greatest days of humankind.”
