Man found in shopping cart might have died of overdose
A man found in a shopping cart in West Baltimore yesterday might have died of a drug overdose, police said.
Detective Kenneth Welsh speculated the man, who weighed about 285 pounds, died about 6 a.m. yesterday in a house near where the body was found in an alley in the 800 block of N. Carey St. He said others were apparently unable to carry the body so they put it in the shopping cart and covered it with a blanket.
Welsh said a resident called police about 8 a.m. after he saw the man's feet sticking out from under the blanket. Police found needle marks on the body and the death was ruled suspicious, pending an autopsy, Welsh said.
