Baltimore Police confirmed that the former head of the homicide unit is back in that role, at least temporarily.  Maj. Stanley Brandford, who in April was named the commander of the Eastern District after about 16 months in charge of homicide investigations, is "temporarily" overseeing the unit again, a police department spokesman confirmed after receiving inquiries from The Sun. It was not clear why a change was made. Maj. Dennis Smith had been overseeing both the homicide unit and district detective unit - an unusual arrangement - since Brandford was moved.

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, leader of the self-proclaimed Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, was himself an insurgent detainee released by the U.S. in 2009.
