The July death of a 10-year-old disabled foster child has been ruled a homicide — six years after the Baltimore city boy's mother was accused of shaking him into a coma-like state, Baltimore police announced Monday. Damaud Martin died July 2 at an Anne Arundel County group home that state regulators were in the process of closing down for multiple problems. State health officials are investigating whether Damaud received adequate care while living at the home, which was run by a company called LifeLine, but have cautioned against drawing any premature conclusions.

Andy Joyce drove his tow truck just after midnight to a West Baltimore service call, where he met a mother and small child waiting with their disabled vehicle. It was Nov. 1, 2010, and the 23-year-old had only worked a few weeks for Gordon Kelly's Quick Response towing company. It was the end of his shift. The mother and child got a ride from someone as Joyce lowered his truck's bed to tow the Dodge Durango near Mosher Street and Druid Hill Avenue. About two hours later, a passerby noticed the truck's door open, engine running, and Joyce slumped inside.
