November 21, 1990

Police were awaiting autopsy results to determine the cause of death of a man who was found lying atop another bloodied man on the porch of a southwest Baltimore residence.

About 10:20 a.m. yesterday, city police responding to a call found two men lying on a porch in the first block of Benkert St., near Caton Avenue, said Agent Arlene Jenkins.

The dead man, Jeffrey Jackson, 29, of South Morley Street, had blood running from his nose, Jenkins said. His death was listed as "questionable" pending autopsy results.

The other man, Cornell Roseborough, 31, of the 3200 block of Leeds St., "had blood on his hands and around his mouth," Jenkins said.

Roseborough was treated at St. Agnes Hospital and released.

No weapon was recovered.
