April 11, 2002|By Del Quentin Wilber | Del Quentin Wilber,SUN STAFF

The city's streak of deadly violence continued yesterday as police reported several more suspicious deaths and homicides, including the discovery of an unidentified woman dead behind a Northeast Baltimore elementary school.

Police said the partially clothed body was found just after 7 a.m. in the 1900 block of Broadway, outside Harford Heights Elementary, by a woman walking two children to school. Police said they had no other information.

The death had not been ruled a homicide as police awaited results of an autopsy.

Also yesterday, a 21-year-old man was fatally stabbed in East Baltimore in what police said may have been an argument over drug territory.

The victim was Anthony Anderson of the 2600 block of E. Monument St. Police said he was standing in the 500 block of N. Streeper St. about 4:30 p.m. when he became involved in an argument with another man who, according to witnesses, warned Anderson not to sell drugs in the area before stabbing him.

About 10 p.m. Tuesday, Lamont Logan, 25, was fatally stabbed in the 6600 block of Knottwood Court in Northeast Baltimore after an altercation with a woman, police said. Logan, of the 1700 block of Windemere Ave., died about an hour later at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, police said.

Schevon Hendrick, 20, was arrested in the killing and charged with first-degree murder.

Also Tuesday, Alcyone Butts, 68, was found beaten to death in her home in the 2300 block of Reisterstown Road about 3 p.m., police said. A nephew, Terrance Carter, 38, was charged with first-degree murder.

Police said they found Carter in the nearby 2500 block of Francis St. while investigating a nonfatal stabbing. Carter, who was charged with attempted murder in the stabbing, told police that his aunt was dead in her house, police said.

Police said they were investigating two other suspicious deaths of women whose bodies were found Tuesday.

Anyone with information about the recent deaths is urged to call homicide detectives at 410-396-2100.
