He was an elderly Peruvian immigrant beaten to death with his own cane while on a leisurely stroll along Reisterstown Road. Baltimore police had the bloodied cane and a witness who said he saw that attack last May. Detectives quickly arrested Hector Jose Posada and charged the 35-year-old with murder. On Thursday, Assistant State's Attorney Charles Blomquist had to stand before a city judge and explain how the case fell apart, and why prosecutors had to drop the charge and give up virtually any chance of bringing a killer to justice.

He wore beat-to-hell pink-and-yellow Adidas high-tops, black sweatpants that scrunch at the bottom and a vintage Cosby sweater that peaked through a buttoned-up oversize camouflage jacket. It's a messy, couldn't-care-less-what-anyone-thinks collage that defies categorization, yet somehow works in the 23-year-old's hands.
