August 21, 2006|By RICHARD IRWIN | RICHARD IRWIN,SUN REPORTER

Three people, including a 63-year-old West Baltimore woman, were victims of homicides over the weekend, police said yesterday.

The latest homicide was reported shortly before 7:30 a.m. yesterday, when a man walking in the rear of the 3000 block of Spaulding Ave., near Pimlico Race Course, saw a body lying in the alley and called police.

Pronounced dead at the scene, with at least one bullet wound to the upper body, was William Tillman, 21, of the nearby 5000 block of Florence Ave.

About five hours earlier, Eastern District officers, responding to a 911 call that reported a man shot in the 1800 block of N. Montford Ave., found Pepe Bennett, 26, of the 2900 block of N. Montford Ave. lying dead in the street with at least one gunshot wound.

Saturday night, police responding to a call to check on the well-being of a woman whose employer hadn't heard from her for more than a day entered her rowhouse in the 200 block of N. Culver St. and found her dead.

Police declined to elaborate on the cause of death but said it is being investigated as a homicide.

Police said there was no sign of forced entry, and that the woman's identity was being withheld pending notification of family members.

Metro Crime Stoppers at 410- 276-8888 is offering a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to an arrest and indictment in any of the three slayings.
