Anne Arundel County police on Wednesday identified the victim of a Severn homicide as Karlyn Serane Ramirez, 24.
Ramirez was found shot to death in a townhome in the 8000 block of Millstone Court at 7:57 a.m. Tuesday, officials said.
Ramirez's daughter, about 5 months old, was found unharmed next to her and appeared to be in good health, police said.
Fort George G. Meade officials confirmed Ramirez was an Army soldier stationed there, Wednesday night.
Officials for the installation and the army did not immediately respond to email questions about Ramirez' military service. Ramirez's Facebook page identifies her as an Army "SPC" or specialist.
Chuy Ramirez, from San Antonio, Texas, identifed himself as her brother and declined to comment on Facebook.
"(A)t this time we our selves (sic) are still wanting answers," he wrote in message.
Ramirez was married, said Lt. Ryan Frashure, a county police spokesman. Police have conducted several interviews with the husband, whom Frashure described "accessible" and "answering questions."
Ramirez was found after officers responded to a call for an open door at the residence, which is part of Lake Village Rental Townhomes.
A person in the area noticed a number of dogs running loose and, knowing where the dogs lived, returned them.
When the person returned the animals, they entered the home through the open door. The person called inside but did not receive any response and called police.
County homicide detectives assisted technicians from the Evidence Collection Unit in scouring the residence and surrounding areas.
Millstone Court was blocked off at New Disney Road with crime scene tape from 8 a.m. to about 3 p.m., according to neighbors. Many who left for work before 8 a.m. said they hadn't seen anything out of the ordinary.
Those leaving after 8 a.m. saw an influx of police officers.
The Lake Village town home community has a large military presence, according to neighbors and many keep to themselves. Property management declined comment.
County police are asking anyone with information on the murder to contact the Homicide Unit at 410-222-4756 or 410-222-4700 in regard to case number 2015-732055. Callers may remain anonymous.
Ramirez's death is at least the ninth homicide in the county this year.
