The death of a 24-year-old Frederick man near his Baltimore hotel had homicide investigators stumped Wednesday. Police reported initially that the man had been the victim of a homicide, but within hours said only that the death was being treated as "suspicious." Few answers emerged as the day progressed, and an autopsy by the state medical examiner's office provided little insight. The victim was visiting Baltimore to celebrate a birthday with two other men from Frederick, according to Anthony Guglielmi, the department's chief spokesman.

Within moments, two more deputies would grab him, the four men would fall in a heap on the floor, and Saylor, who had been shouting and resisting their attempts to restrain him, would grow quiet and still.
