Baltimore man charged in killing of woman

A Baltimore man has been arrested and charged with murder in the death of a woman whose body was found in the basement of a house in the Gwynn Oak area, police said yesterday.

Teandre Lanathian Draper, 22, of the 1800 block of W. Mosher St. was charged in the death of Eula Uverde Osbourne, 49, whose body was found Sunday inside a home that she was renovating in the 5800 block of Royal Oak Drive, police said.

Her boyfriend said he had not heard from her in several days, and he reported her missing last week, police said.

Police said the killing stemmed from an argument.

Draper, who had been arrested on unrelated charges, gave a statement to police about the homicide, according to court documents. The woman was struck and strangled in the basement during a struggle, police said.

Investigators were trying to determine how the two knew each other, said Cpl. Michael Hill, a county police spokesman.

Draper was being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center, police said.

State registry

Police seek convicted sex offender

Baltimore County police are searching for a convicted child sex offender who they say failed to register with the state's sex offender registry.

Gary Lynn Edwards, 37, who has used an address in the 900 block of Lance Ave. in Essex but is not believed to be living there, was required to register after he was convicted of the 1996 sexual abuse of a child he knew in Baltimore, police said.

Edwards was described as a white male, about 6 feet 2 inches tall, weighing and 200 pounds with short brown hair and green eyes.

Anyone with information about Edwards is urged to call county police at 410-307-2020 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 866-7-LOCKUP. Those calling Metro Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous and might be eligible for a cash reward of up to $2,000.
