City police have identified the woman found dead in East Baltimore this week, not far from where police have been searching for suspects in a string of rapes. The body of Lykeisha Freeman, 35, was found Tuesday in the rear of the 900 block of E. Eager St., in a grassy area behind a convenience store. The cause of death was listed as blunt-force trauma. Freeman had a history of prostitution charges, and her death came amid a string of attacks that took place at bus stops and inside homes in East Baltimore, police said.
