Johns Hopkins gynecologist Dr. Nikita A. Levy wrote an apology letter to his wife before wrapping a plastic bag around his head Monday and pumping it with helium, killing himself in the basement of his Towson-area home, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the investigation.

But most certainly, it was not "the county government as a whole" that directed the police officers to give "helpful tips" to the two Dundalk activists who were trying to present their perspective on the government's plans that would significantly impact their local community.
