Woman in park was strangled


August 19, 2008|By RICHARD IRWIN

An autopsy by the state medical examiner's office has ruled the death of a 19-year-old woman, whose body was found under a bridge in Herring Run Park on Friday, a homicide by strangulation, a city police spokesman said. The victim's name was being withheld pending notification of family, said Agent Donny Moses, the spokesman.

About 7 a.m., a jogger found the woman lying on rocks between a paved trail and a stream that runs under a bridge on Harford Road.

Moses said no arrest had been made in the woman's death and that there was no evidence linking her slaying to those of several other women, some of them prostitutes, who were either beaten to death or strangled over the past several months around the city.

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