Mid October Baltimore Crime Blog Update
Around the Horn:
Police have identified a suspect in the Fells Point murder of popular waitress Claudia Parodi, unfortunately, the suspect is no where to be found and is presumed to have absconded into Mexico.
Two men are given Life plus some change for the quasi-gang related yet simultaneous cold blooded and random murder of 12-year-old Sean Johnson.
Cradle robbing accused murderer Michael McCarthy, age 52 has been charged with homicide in regards to the death of his 28-year-old "Girlfried" Tieisha Wilson.
The Federal Courts have had there hands full of Baltimore criminals, announcing a sentence of 11 years for 43-year-old Antonio Rennard Gilliam after he robbed some Towson businesses, a 10 year bid for 27-year-old coke dealer Kevin Gerard Wyche, and a hefty 30 year visit to the pen for Dundalk armed robber John Joseph Wilson, age 54.
The murder of MTA driver Craig Ray made headlines earlier this year, but it would seem that yet again, the public pressure had caused the BPD to charge a man without sufficient evidence to convict. Thus, former murder suspect Kevin Carroll has had all of his charges dropped in regards to the "loud noise" shooting death of Craig Ray.
A fella got popped in the knee Saturday morning.
A big time cross cross country drug conspiracy bust occurred this week, with area crime lord Kedrick Arnold Jenifer and eight of his associates indicted federally on a bevy of drug related crimes. Mr. Jenifer has becoming notorious as of late due to his ownership of a fells point Rita's Italian Ice Shop which was used to launder money. And to a lesser degree, he's received attention thanks to his criminal group participating in a 2012 murder.
Since this is a very change of pace post, I thought I would offer up something not seen before in the Baltimore crime blog; that is, a brief summary of all major or noteworthy arrests during a certain period. All cases can be searched in the Maryland Judiciary Case Search, and if readers are interested in the continuation, please make your voices heard.
