Baltimore County police said Tuesday they were searching for a man whose elderly grandparents were found dead this week in the Pikesville home that the three shared. Vaughn George Pepper, 87 and Marjorie Marie Pepper, 85, were discovered in their home Monday afternoon. Police are investigating their deaths as homicides and said they do not believe the killings were random. Detectives continue to search for the couple's grandson, Matthew Long, 31, who lived with his grandparents in the 800 block of Olmstead Road, to question him. Police spokeswoman Elise Armacost said they are not calling him a suspect.

Police are searching for three men who put on masks and robbed a convenience store in Edgewood at gunpoint this month, the Harford County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday. Police don't know the identities of the suspects. They also said they believe there were witnesses to the event who have yet to be identified. About 2:55 a.m. on Aug. 13, the three men entered the 7-Eleven store in the 1000 block of Gateway Road in Edgewood and pointed at least two guns - a black handgun and a dark colored "long gun" - at the clerk, demanding money, police said.

What happened to Chavis Carter? It is a pregnant question, potentially even an explosive one. Carter died of a gunshot wound to the temple on the last Saturday in July, but the question about his death has only grown louder and more urgent since then. It is beginning to gather national attention. So we need an answer soon, either so that suspicions can be put to rest and some imperfect peace achieved, or so that suspicions can be validated and some equally imperfect justice sought.

A bomb threat at the Lowe's store at Westview Shopping Center in Catonsville caused the store to be evacuated Wednesday afternoon, Baltimore County police said. An unidentified person called the store in the 5900 block of Baltimore National Pike just after 4 p.m. and said there was a bomb in the store, and store management immediately evacuated the building, police said. Police responded shortly after with bomb-sniffing dogs, said Louise Rogers-Feher, a Baltimore County police spokeswoman.

Two weeks after Violet Ripken was abducted at gunpoint, she said it was "too soon to share any thoughts" about the ordeal as she took in a game Wednesday night at the Aberdeen stadium named for her famous baseball family. Ripken, the 74-year-old mother of Orioles "Ironman" Cal Ripken Jr. and widow of former Orioles manager Cal Ripken Sr., came out of Conrad's Crabs restaurant at Ripken Stadium shortly after the start of the Aberdeen IronBirds game and smiled as she chatted with an usher, her hand on his arm. Approached by a reporter, she spoke briefly before being escorted away by the usher.

Authorities investigating the strange circumstances of Violet R. Ripken's abduction hope that tips made in response to grainy images of the suspect will lead to an arrest. "We are attempting to look at other sources of video, photos" to release publicly, FBI spokesman Special Agent Richard Wolf said Monday. He would not say where authorities might be looking for surveillance footage, or where the suspect might have stopped during his daylong ride with Ripken in Ripken's 1998 Lincoln Town Car. Last week, Aberdeen police released two images of a man wearing an orange baseball cap and light-colored shirt standing in front of what appears to be a business.

Bound and abducted in her own vehicle, Violet Ripken was gone for 12 hours before her disappearance was reported to authorities. And amid an intensive search, she was quietly dropped off by her kidnapper on her secluded Harford County street. A neighbor, Erik Snyder, 28, was arriving home from an overnight shift at a local warehouse when he saw a woman waving a white sweater out of a car window. "There's a woman who's tied up in a car down the street," he told nearby officers, who "zoomed over" to free the 74-year-old mother of Baseball Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr. Police are trying to piece together why she was taken - and whether her kidnapper even realized who he had been ferrying around Central Maryland for nearly a day. According to Gus Kowalewski, 72, a longtime neighbor who spoke to Vi Ripken about the ordeal, the man confronted her in her garage between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. Tuesday, blindfolded her and forced her into her 1998 Lincoln Town Car at gunpoint.

Once again our elected leaders in Baltimore have shown that you don't have to be the brightest bulb in the room to have enough common sense to appoint a search committee to find a new city police chief. Two or three of the panel members now lead their own police forces, so they know what best practices are and what it takes to lead the fight against crime. Joe Heming
