Police searching for suspect in murder of Baltimore woman

March 18, 2013|By Alison Matas, The Baltimore Sun

Police have identified a suspect in the Thursday stabbing murder of a Baltimore woman who was found dead in her home.

Police are searching for Michael Wesley in connection with the homicide, which they have called "domestic-related." Online court records show Wesley has previously been charged with assault but not convicted. A lawyer who represented him in one of those cases did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

On Thursday, police found Rachel Curtis, 31, unresponsive with multiple stab wounds in her Lakeland neighborhood home in the 2600 block of Wegworth Lane. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Her brother told The Baltimore Sun she had five children and was studying to become a mortician.

Wesley is thought to have a cut on his right hand from the attack and frequents the Edmondson Village area in southwest Baltimore, according to police.

Anyone with information regarding the case is asked to call 410-396-2100.
