TOWSON — Freedom proved short-lived for accused killer Emmanuel Clark, who staged a rare escape Friday from the maximum-security Baltimore City Detention Center, authorities said.

Clark, 21, who had been jailed since June 1997 and was awaiting trial in the fatal stabbing of a bakery employee in East Baltimore, was captured late Saturday by city police and U.S. marshals in the 8000 block of Wallace Road in Baltimore County's North Point area after authorities received a tip by telephone.

Clark had escaped by crawling through a vent from his second-floor cell and making his way to a wall where he used a bedsheet rope to lower himself to the ground. "The investigation into how he managed to escape is still under way," jail spokeswoman Barbara Cooper said yesterday.

Woman's body found near tracks in Mount Winans

The body of a woman in her 30s was found yesterday near railroad tracks in the Mount Winans section of Southwest Baltimore, police said.

An officer responding to a call of a sick or injured person found the body about 8: 15 a.m. near the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad tracks off the 2200 block of Hollins Ferry Road.

The body was taken to the state medical examiner's office for an autopsy. Police said the woman's description would be matched with missing-person reports in an effort to identify her.

TOWSON -- School board member and defeated state Senate hopeful Robert Fulton Dashiell is behind in filing required state campaign finance reports again.

State election officials said Dashiell, a Democrat who lost a 10th District primary election bid to unseat state Sen. Delores G. Kelley from her West Baltimore/Baltimore County seat, hasn't filed his October or November reports. He was late filing two earlier reports.

State Prosecutor Stephen Montanarelli is investigating $125 election night payments to poll workers by Dashiell's campaign to determine if Maryland election laws that prohibit so-called walking around money were violated. If the October report doesn't arrive by Saturday, Montanarelli's office will be notified, officials said.
