In first town hall, Baltimore County police chief Melissa Hyatt says city department background will help her avoid 'pitfalls'

Hyatt, a longtime Baltimore City cop, said Wednesday at the troubled department she saw things done well and things she "would do differently."

Officer Jennifer Peach, a police spokeswoman, said Friday that the medical examiner determined the cause of death was homicide, but Peach did not provide more specifics.

She said there was no further information and that another update was not likely “any time soon.”

The body was originally discovered Sunday night, when a woman was walking her dog around 5 p.m., police said.
