Police identify woman found dead at Reisterstown townhomes

Baltimore County police have identified the woman found dead in the rental office of a Reisterstown development as 29-year-old Melinda Schaefer.

It appeared as though she had stab wounds, department spokesman Ofc. Shawn Vinson said Saturday. A full autopsy was still being carried out, he added.

Officers responded to the office of the Townes at Harvest View on Augusta Ridge Road on Friday morning, after Schaefer was found by a cleaner on the first floor of the building.

The development is made up of tidy two- and three-bedroom townhomes laid out around a central square; the homes rent for between $1,500 and $1,900, according to the management company's website.

Police have made no arrests in the case.
