Baltimore police said a 44-year-old man who was beaten last month at a light rail stop has died of his injuries, while the agency also released the identities of several recent homicide victims.

Police said that on Oct. 22, Winslow Thomas walked to a home in the 2200 block of Sidney Ave. and said he had been assaulted at the Westport light rail station in the 2200 block of Kloman St. He was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he was treated for cuts and blunt-force injuries. He was pronounced dead Wednesday night.

Three recent victims of killings this week were also identified.

Police said Jerry Harden, 21, was the man found inside a burning home in the 7000 block of McClean Blvd. in Northeast Baltimore. Harden had been stabbed in the chest before the fire was set, an autopsy determined. Harden is the second person killed this year at the Dutch Village apartment complex, which is near Parkville. Darius Ray, a 20-year-old Marine, was stabbed at a party there in January. A 30-year-old man was also fatally shot nearby in July.

Kevin Anderson, 30, was the man found dead on a sidewalk in the 200 block of S. Woodyear St. just before 3 a.m. Thursday. He was shot in the back and died at Shock Trauma.

Police also identified Malcolm Hill, 53, as the man found shot to death Tuesday night on the front porch of a home in the 2500 block of Robb St., where he lived. Police did not provide motives or descriptions of suspects for any of the killings.
