Burned body found in West Baltimore

A 911 call early yesterday evening led uniformed police and homicide detectives to the rear of the 1900 block of Division St. in West Baltimore, where they found the severely burned body of an unidentified man.

The discovery, reported at 6 p.m., has been ruled suspicious pending an autopsy, police said.

Police investigating two Baltimore homicides that were reported Tuesday identified one victim, a man, but have not identified the second, a woman.

About 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, Fire Department medics responding to a report of an injured man in a house in the 1200 block of Glyndon Ave. found Charles Sparrow, 53, unconscious in a room.

Sparrow was taken to Bon Secours Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. An autopsy yesterday found that Sparrow died from at least one knife wound.

Several hours later, police responding to a 911 call entered a vacant house in the 2600 block of St. Benedict St. about 5 p.m. and found the body of an unidentified woman. An autopsy showed she died from head injuries.

Police were attempting to identify her through fingerprints or missing-person reports.

In earlier homicides, police yesterday identified Deangelo Hunter, 24, of the 400 block of N. Highland Ave. as the man stabbed in the 3300 block of Old Frederick Road late Monday night and who died early Tuesday at Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

In another slaying, Darnell Butler, 24, of the 3300 block of Dorithan Road was identified as one of two men shot Saturday night in the 3500 block of Lucille Ave. in Northwest Baltimore. Butler was taken to Sinai Hospital, where he died a short time later. The other man survived.

Police said yesterday that the death of a woman found in the 900 block of Druid Hill Ave. on Sunday night has been ruled suspicious pending an autopsy.

Detective Robert Dohony said Julia Kimberly Boussari, 34, of no fixed address died from a single stab wound to the chest. The weapon has not been found. Dohony said the woman had spoken to relatives about suicide.

A man fatally shot April 6 in a house in the 2000 block of N. Longwood St. has been identified as Curtis Mitchell, 19, of the 3000 block of Clifton Park Terrace.
