Baltimore State's Attorney Gregg L. Bernstein got to work on his re-election campaign in a low-key way Saturday, knocking on the doors of likely voters in Northwest Baltimore and asking for their support. It was one of the first campaign activities Bernstein has organized this year and while he confirmed last summer that he intended to run again, he has been reluctant to talk about the political side of his job. On each doorstep he made no big promises about the future but pointed to his record in office.

Police fanned out Friday afternoon to search for clues in the killing of teenager Michael Mayfield in Northwest Baltimore, handing out fliers with the victim's image as they moved door to door along Lyndhurst Avenue. Two days after the fatal shooting of the 17-year-old, investigators say they are still at a loss for a motive. As a homicide detective ordered 16 police cadets to hit the streets in the case, he reminded them of the gravity of the case. "The most important thing you're going to handle is a murder," said Lt. Michael Newton.

Among the many Baltimore long-timers who had an old, sad anger awakened by the recent mention of Esther Lebowitz in the news was Nick Giangrasso, the detective in charge of the crime scene the day her body was found. "Some cases never leave you," he said, "and that's one of them. The years go by, and something flashes here and there in your memory. " It was 1969, and Giangrasso was a 26-year-old detective. A call came in the middle of a late-September day for a detective to respond to a tree-lined place in Northwest Baltimore that Giangrasso knew as a lover's lane on the edge of Mount Washington, across from Pimlico Race Course . Two police officers had stopped in the shady spot to have lunch in their car; one of them discovered the girl's body in tall grass.

About 200 members of Baltimore's Jewish community packed courtroom benches Thursday, lined walls and stood single-file in aisles - some reading religious texts - amid growing concern over the potential release of the man who killed an 11-year-old girl in 1969. Emotions remain high in Northwest Baltimore more than 40 years after the murder of Esther Lebowitz. The latest appeal by Wayne Stephen Young, found guilty in her death and sentenced to life in prison, drew wide protest because a recent appellate court ruling has led prosecutors to release dozens of people convicted decades ago. The state is fighting to keep Young, now 68, locked up. In court Thursday, Assistant State's Attorney Antonio Gioia cited the disturbing nature of the crime - Lebowitz, missing for two days, was found beaten to death with a hammer.
