Tip directs police to woman's body


An anonymous call from a pay phone yesterday morning led city police to the body of an unidentified woman lying face down in a stream in Herring Run Park in Northeast Baltimore.

Agent Angelique Cook-Hayes, a police spokeswoman, said police found no sign of trauma on the body and no apparent cause of death. An autopsy was scheduled for today.

Police said the woman appeared to be in her 20s.

A police officer found the fully clothed body about 500 yards west of Mannasota Avenue, near Belair Road and Parkside Drive, about 11:30 a.m., shortly after the call was made to 911 from a pay phone in Southwest Baltimore.

Investigators said calls to police between 9:30 p.m. and 11 p.m. Thursday reported shots fired in the area. But Cook-Hayes said police found no evidence that the woman, who was partly submerged, had been shot.
