Baltimore Police identified Versey Spell, a 75-year-old woman reported missing in October, as the person found inside a container in Northwest Baltimore this month.

Spell, who was a longtime gameday staff member for the Orioles, was reported missing Oct. 19 from her Northwest Baltimore home on the 3900 block of Barrington Road in the Dorchester neighborhood.


On March 7, police were called to the 3900 block of Liberty Heights Avenue and found a black container with human remains outside a house near the intersection of Garrison Boulevard and Liberty Heights Avenue, less than half a mile from Spell’s home.
