City police have identified and arrested a murder suspect — but figuring out the identity of his alleged victim would prove to be a bigger challenge. Early Monday, police were called to the 3200 block of Leverton Ave. near Highlandtown after a witness said he had heard muffled screams and saw Jose Villatoro inside the home holding a knife, officials said. The witness fled and called police. When officers got there at about 5 a.m., they called out to Villtatoro and observed him trying to escape through a window, police said.

Baltimore County police made back-to-back announcements on Friday: detectives made arrests in a killing in Essex and in a fatal shooting of a man whose body was found along a highway on-ramp in Gaithersburg. It's news you'd expect to hear from your police department. But these announcements were "news" only because you might have been hearing about the shootings for the very first time. The shooting in Essex occurred Jan. 8, and police arrested a suspect Feb. 25. The shooting of the man found in Gaithersburg occurred on York Road Feb. 5, 2009, and police charged a suspect on Feb. 4 of this year.

He's known for leading the Trail of Tears walk — tours of recent killings — as part of his Garden Community ministry in Bolton Hill and part of a push by Southern Baptist congregations into Baltimore. Joel Kurz's work takes him to the city's most depressed, most dangerous, most drug-riddled neighborhoods. It also has drawn the attention of Baltimore police. Officers don't quite know what to do with a 29-year-old white guy who keeps appearing on street corners, and he says they sometimes confuse his ministering with something more sinister — they accuse him of looking to buy drugs.
