Dundalk man sought in killing

The Baltimore Sun

Police are seeking a Dundalk man in connection with the death of a man whose badly decomposed body was found last week in Rosedale.

Baltimore County police have obtained an arrest warrant for Kenneth James Beauchamp, 57, in the shooting of Patrick Carroll Pearce III, 41, of Rosedale.

A passer-by discovered Pearce's body about 7 p.m. Thursday night under piles of trash in the 600 block of Todds Lane in Rosedale. An autopsy determined he died of a gunshot wound to the upper body.

Beauchamp was last known to live in the 1900 block of Dundalk Ave. in Dundalk. He is described as white, 6 feet tall, 165 pounds, with gray shoulder-length hair and blue eyes.

Police do not believe Pearce's death was connected to that of a woman whose body was found Friday behind the El-Rich Motel in the 1100 block of Batavia Farm Road in Rosedale.

Police ask anyone with information on Beauchamp's whereabouts to call 911, Baltimore County police at 410-307-2020, or Metro Crime Stoppers at 866-756-2587. Callers to Metro Crime Stoppers may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000.
