Baltimore's 1992 murder toll rose to 68 yesterday when police found the bodies of two young women in a vacant rowhouse and that of an elderly woman in a public housing project.
Lt. Robert Stanton of the homicide unit said last night the bodies of the young women, apparently strangled, were in a vacant house in the 2500 block of Salem Ave. Neither had been identified last night.
In another section of West Baltimore, police found the elderly woman's body in the Gilmor Homes housing project in the 1600 block of Delano Court.
Police said Louise Griffin, 70, of the address where her body was found, apparently had been stabbed by someone who broke into the low-rise public housing building. An autopsy was scheduled, police said.
They said they had no suspects or motives in any of the three slayings.
