Man discovered fatally shot in Harlem Park


City police identified two recent homicide victims yesterday as detectives took on yet another case - that of a man found fatally shot in the Harlem Park neighborhood.

Terry Cheeks, 21, of the 1300 block of N. Calhoun St. was shot by an unknown assailant shortly before 1 a.m. in the 1800 block of W. Lanvale St., police said.

In an unrelated killing, police identified James Leroy Burgess, 27, of the 2700 block of Pennsylvania Ave., as the man fatally shot about 3 a.m. Monday in the 2700 block of E. Madison St.

A woman found partially nude and beaten to death early Monday was identified as Daniel D. Fell, 18, of the 2800 block of Fleetwood Ave. in Northeast Baltimore.

Her body was found in the 1400 block of Baylis St., and police were seeking evidence on whether the death might be linked to those of two women whose bodies were found earlier in the industrial Southeast Baltimore area.

The other women were Melody Brock, 34, found beaten and suffocated April 9 on Newkirk Street, and Tabitha Bruce, 22, found beaten and strangled Sept. 6 on Seaforth Street.

Police asked that anyone with information call homicide detectives at 410-396-2100.
