Children Lost and Found

Kenneth Warren Hager has been missing from Baltimore since April 9, 1947.

... and seriously? This very cute little boy was found "wondering the street" almost a year ago, but no one has come forward to claim him!


The Ink updates the murder toll, adding Curtis Pounds, who was killed last Sunday near Herring Run park, and names Zachary Thompson as the man stabbed to death on Watty Court. Oddly, the Sun names this victim as William Clayborne, 32. are there two victims?
Also ID'd is David Williams, shot to death in a car March 31.

Says our Facebook friend the BPD: "PADLOCK NOTICE: Club 410 (4500 blk BelAir Rd) deemed a public nuisance. Police Commissioner issues padlock order effective 5pm tomorrow"
or as WBAL puts it, "City To Padlock Trouble Club"

also apparently posted at 4 a.m.: "SHOOTING: Police investigating @ 23 Penn St. Adult male shot, walked into hospital."

It is a small world after all

IV: Prosecutors say Timothy Hebron, shot to death 4/4, was a key witness in the murder of Terrence Regan. Regan's murder in November 2007 happened to take place outside of the home of Charles Y. McGaney, on the 1600 block of Lochwood Road. Charles McGaney has been charged with first-degree murder in Councilman Ken Harris's death.
