Pamela Prowant was shot multiple times in her apartment in Laurel in 1985, lived with paralysis and used a wheelchair for another 27 years, and died in January of what appeared to be natural causes. In April, the office of the chief medical examiner ruled her death a homicide, essentially declaring that the injuries she sustained almost three decades ago caused her death this year while Prowant, in her early 50s, was still relatively young. Prowant's death is the 28th homicide of 2012 in Prince George's, a negative mark on the county's crime books that won't - and legally can't - be erased with a murder conviction.

Angela Holland seems to know just about everyone in her North Baltimore neighborhood. She jokes with a guy hanging out of the window of an apartment high-rise. She consoles the deli counter man at the East 25th Street corner store, who's distraught about losing his mother two years ago. Without saying a word, she slips a few quarters to a man sitting on a stoop, who in turn hands her a cigarette. These folks know her. And some of the people in this neighborhood, she suspects, also know who killed her son, 22-year-old Jerry Isaac.

A Baltimore police detective who was thrust into the national spotlight while leading the investigation into a teenager who disappeared has been suspended after authorities said he allegedly went on a rogue hunt for his own missing daughter. Law enforcement sources — one within the city police department, another affiliated with police who has information on the case — said Tuesday that investigators are probing allegations that detective Daniel Thomas Nicholson IV used his badge while off duty to gain entry to homes in an unauthorized search.

The recent changes in the Baltimore City Police Department's homicide unit have left me shaking my head in wonderment ("Baltimore Police name new homicide commander," Oct. 14). Police Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III told The Sun last summer that he had removed Major Terrence McLarney from his post as commander of the homicide unit because of a drop in the number of convictions. Major McLarney was a seasoned expert who also possessed a law degree. Most of us understand that conviction is a complex process between investigation and prosecution.

After conducting a nationwide search for a new leader for his vaunted but scuffling homicide unit, Baltimore Police Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III instead looked inward to a trusted commander who hadn't even applied for the job. Bealefeld chose Lt. Col. Garnell Green, and in an interview the commissioner said Green would have his support to make changes he deems necessary. "I want progress," Bealefeld said. "At the end of the day, I don't have time for excuses. The mayor and the people of the city should expect that the homicide clearance rate improves.
