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. Along with the letter, he left behind multiple hard drives, computers and servers that police have seized and are scrutinizing, police said. More than 300 of Levy's current and former patients have contacted officers, fearing that they are pictured in images he is accused of secretly capturing, Baltimore police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said Wednesday.

I am a proud Baltimore native and have been a Ravens fan since the football team moved here in 1996. I am also a pastor and an advocate against domestic violence and rape culture. The behavior of running back Ray Rice, who was accused of knocking out his then fiancee (now wife) during an altercation in Atlantic City, has embarrassed me enough to question being a Ravens fan. The pathetic punishment from the NFL — a two game suspension — has made me question my continued support for the league.

Composed and seemingly contrite, Ravens running back Ray Rice apologized to his wife, Janay, and insisted that their physical altercation in February was a one-time incident from which he has grown. He also vowed to become a vocal advocate against domestic violence when the time is right. Taking questions from reporters Thursday for the first time since he was arrested and accused of striking his then-fiancee unconscious at an Atlantic City, N.J., casino in February, Rice said many of the things that people hoped to hear when he broke his silence in May. “My actions that night were totally inexcusable,” Rice said in Thursday's news conference, held after the team's training camp practice.

Shame on The Sun for its recent article on a victim, Tyrone Brown, the ex-Marine who served his country and received a honorable discharge ("Haunted by violence," March 23). The reporter twisted the story to make him seem like the shooter. He was unarmed when he was assassinated by off-duty Baltimore Police Officer Gahiji Tshamba. Mr. Brown's story didn't need to be placed on the front page. The question remains how many more loose cannons are there in the city's police department?

The mother of a 22-year-old woman who was raped outside a house in North Baltimore early Saturday called with additional details of the horrific attack. Some information was incomplete in the initial police report. The woman had left Mad River Bar on South Charles Street in Federal Hill but told police she had blacked out and couldn't recall anything until she was attacked in the Lake Evesham neighborhood nearly seven miles away. The victim's mother, whom we are not identifying to shield the name of the young woman, said her daughter worked at Mad River, and had not been out drinking with friends, as the first report seemed to suggest.

Baltimore County State Del. Jon S. Cardin, who lost the primary campaign for attorney general, says he was the victim of the "most negative smear campaign in a Democratic Party primary in Maryland's modern history. "  In a Facebook post this week, Cardin, who runs his own law practice, also said he plans to return to private life, after losing last month to Montgomery County State Sen. Brian Frosh. Frosh, whom Cardin calls a "good Democrat" in the post, will face Republican lawyer Jeffrey Pritzker in the general election.  Cardin received criticism during the primary campaign over his misuse of Baltimore police resources during a stunt wedding proposal; missing nearly 75 percent of his committee votes during the 2014 General Assembly session; and touting the endorsement of a Baltimore rapper facing human trafficking charges.  Some of these charges were made in negative mailers funded by labor unions that supported Frosh.  In a Facebook post shortly after the primary, Cardin called the campaign "disgustingly negative.

Both were found during the early morning, and police have no suspects in either case.
