Baltimore Police homicide detectives are investigating the discovery of a body that had been set on fire in West Baltimore Monday morning.
Police said in a statement that officers were called to the 2700 block of Presstman St., at the address of Rosemont Elementary/Middle School, where they found the body of a man, which had been burned.
School officials confirmed that they were notified of the discovery of a body on school property, but referred questions to police. Edie House-Foster, a school spokeswoman, said there were no students at the school Monday because of a professional development day.
No additional information was provided by police, who asked anyone with information to call detectives at 410-396-2100.
Police also identified the woman found dead last week inside a Northeast Baltimore home that had been set on fire. Police say Patricia Lea Tracey, 52, had been killed before the home, in the 4400 block of Furley Ave., was set on fire.
The department has not released a possible motive and has not announced any arrests in that case.
