Baltimore police said they still haven't determined motives or suspects for the killings of two women and a man in separate incidents recently.

Police said Louis Lanteon, 40, of the 2200 block of N. Dukeland St., was fatally shot in the face and forehead at about 8:50 p.m. Monday.

Police said the shooting occurred a block from Lanteon's home. He was found lying face down between two parked cars. He was wearing fashionable clothing, a wristwatch and other jewelry. Police found no signs of robbery.

Police are also investigating the death of Cindy Green, 34, of the 4100 block of Boarman Ave.

Her body was found at 4 p.m. Monday wrapped in a blanket inside a vacant garage in the 4500 block of Garrison Blvd. in northwest Baltimore, police said.

She had cuts and bruises on her head, police said.

A medical examiner used fingerprints to identify Lanteon and Green yesterday.

In the third homicide, police said Barbara Halsy, 35, of the 2800 block of N. Calvert St., was discovered dead in her apartment Saturday by friends. Police said they are continuing to investigate her death.

Friends became concerned about Halsy when she failed to return to work at the Veterans Affairs Hospital on Loch Raven Boulevard after lunch Friday.

According to the Scranton Times in Scranton, Pa., Halsy was born in Berlin, Germany. She served several years in the military, including duty in Vietnam. Her parents live in Bandling, a small community in northeast Pennsylvania, the newspaper said.

Halsy will be buried this week at Union Dale Cemetery in Susquehanna County, Pa., the newspaper said. She is survived by two daughters and a brother in Baltimore, and a sister in Pennsylvania.

According to the newspaper, she had been married at least twice.
