Relatives of an 84-year-old West Baltimore woman found her dead in bed yesterday morning with a cut throat, and city homicide detectives scheduled an autopsy.
Detective Thomas Pellegrini said the body of Nancy Goodwin was discovered about 11 a.m. in in her second-floor apartment in the 500 block of Cumberland Street, near the intersection of Pennsylvania and North avenues. Relatives had come to check on her, police said.
Lt. James Rainey of the Western District said investigating officers found cuts on Ms. Goodwin's throat and blood on some of the bedding. The police report did not make clear what caused the injury, Lieutenant Rainey said, but the case was being investigated as a homicide.
