A 43-year-old Northwest Baltimore man has been charged in the June 18 double slaying of a mother and daughter. But the suspect remained a fugitive last night, and city police said he may have fled the state.
Darryl Edmund Green is charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of Vanessa Price, 36, and her daughter, Bianca Price,16. Both were shot several times in the head at their Northwest Baltimore home, where they lived with Mr. Green.
Police said that Mr. Green was the boyfriend of Vanessa Price, but that the two had split up a number of times and had argued recently.
Mr. Green at first was being sought only for questioning, but homicide detectives charged him in a warrant this week after obtaining information from witnesses, police said.
Investigators said Mr. Green may have gone to North Carolina.
The shootings occurred inside a house in the 3700 block of Crestfield Court. Neighbors told police they had heard screaming from the house the previous day.
A 2-year-old girl who was being cared for by the victims was in the house at the time and may have witnessed the killings, police said. She was not physically hurt.
Both victims had been dead about 24 hours before they were discoveredby a friend who had stopped by to pick up the toddler.
Police found the victims in a second-floor rear bedroom of the house.
Bianca Price was last seen alive about 9 a.m. Wednesday when she left her 3-year-old brother at a local day care center.
When she did not show up at the end of the day to get the boy, an employee of the center took him home with her for the night. He has since been placed with the Department of Social Services.
