in the murder rate, at least seven people were killed last week-not including a man killed by police, multiple traffic deaths, and two other deaths that remain undetermined. Police found a body floating in the water near Lancaster Street on Monday, Oct. 14. It was the second body found in the water in two weeks, a 58-year-old Caucasian man named Douglas Paige having been pulled from the water on Oct. 8. The Medical Examiner had not yet determined a cause of death in either case, though, and police said there was "no obvious signs of foul play." Also last week a Baltimore cop killed a man who was reportedly dragging him in a car on Mannasota Avenue. On Oct. 16 a Baltimore patrolman tried to do a traffic stop on Sean Dewayne Dean, a 40 year-old African-American man. As the police tell it, Dean drove away with the officer hanging on to the car door for two blocks. "He was determined not to cooperate," Police Commissioner Anthony Batts told the media later, allegedly because he had cocaine in the car, along with his 19-year-old daughter, who was not hit by any bullets. The cop shot Dean, who died. It was the sixth time police had shot a suspect to death this year.
