Unattended Death - Perry Street
At approximately 10:30 PM last night MRPD units responded to the 3100 block of Perry Street for an alleged homicide. We discovered the body of a 41-year-old African American female who had died of as yet unknown causes. Preliminary investigation suggests no foul play was involved in the victim’s death. The Medical Examiner advised that she had died there at least 12 hours before her body was discovered. Relatives told us that the deceased suffered from seizures, diabetes, and was an acute alcoholic. The Medical Examiner had the body removed to the State toxicologist's office in Baltimore for post mortem examination, and we should have preliminary results by late Monday afternoon or early Tuesday morning. PGPD detectives are handling the follow-up investigation.
