Anthony Cusimano, who worked for much of his life in a produce and food market on Lombard Street, died Nov. 21 of respiratory failure. He was 80. Mr. Cusimano, who was known as Tony, was born in Baltimore in 1928. He left school after the eighth grade to work in his father's store on Corned Beef Row on Lombard Street. Known as Tony's Market, the place sold retail and wholesale produce. During Mr. Cusimano's younger years, Lombard Street was a thriving commercial strip. The market sold goods to many of Baltimore's well-known restaurants, including Sabatino's and Caesar's Den. "Sundays used to be the busiest day of the week," said his son, Fred Cusimano of Bel Air. "It was a huge day."

BY A bizarre quirk in Maryland statutes -- one the legislature needs to rectify -- individuals don't have to report deaths to the state health department.This anomaly came to light recently when the Anne Arundel County state's attorney could not press charges against Richard "Prince" Marshall, 25, for failing to report the death of his 4-year-old daughter eight months ago or his burial of her in county woods.The father might only be liable for a misdemeanor for dumping on public property, as he would be if he left behind mere garbage.

The caller told police that an elderly woman living in his Essex home had died in her bed. What he didn't say was she had died almost a year ago -- and was still there.Baltimore County police believe the mummified body discovered under a blanket is that of 66-year-old Marian V. Cusimano, and yesterday they began investigating why the couple who shared Cusimano's home left her corpse in an upstairs bedroom.Police are investigating the reclusive woman's financial situation."They have been looking into the finances of the dead woman -- income from pension checks, disability checks," Baltimore County Police spokesman Bill Toohey said yesterday.

Cusimano. Thomas could receive 45 years in prison when she is sentenced in April.In grim, often macabre testimony, witnesses described Thomas' abuse of Cusimano, a strong-willed woman victimized by advanced multiple sclerosis and her own refusal to accept help.
