Baltimore Police found a man dead of an apparent homicide on Friday morning in an industrial, half-vacant section of the Carrollton Ridge neighborhood.
The man was found at 6:07 a.m. in a field behind a string of abandoned railroad cars next to some tracks just off the 600 block of S. Fulton Ave.
Bits of crime scene tape remained attached to a rusted railroad car that had marked off the crime scene, where, at noon, blood could be seen still pooled on the ground. No description of the victim's age, injuries or manner of death was available. Homicide detectives are investigating the case.
No other information was available immediately as investigators continue to gather evidence, a police spokeswoman said.
