Towson man accused of killing Baltimore woman last month admitted the crime before fleeing the state, court records say

A Towson man accused of murdering a Baltimore woman last month and then fleeing to Georgia told a witness that he committed the crime, according to charging documents.

Timothy Callanan, 26, was arrested in Darien, Georgia, last month after a high-speed chase while facing a Maryland warrant for first-degree murder and other charges, police said. He is accused of killing Mason Moldoven, 28, on Sept. 2 and stuffing her body in a plastic container behind a home on the 1100 block of Gorsuch Ave., in the Better Waverly section of Baltimore.

Detectives found “possible blood evidence” located on Moldoven’s second-floor bedroom and inside of the back door into the home which led into the backyard, charging documents said.

Preliminary information from police said officers went to the home to do a condition check and were let into the home by a woman but found nothing inside.

During the investigation, a witness who was interviewed said that Callanan telephoned and confessed to killing Moldoven. The investigation concluded that Moldoven was killed between Aug. 28 and Sept. 1, according to charging documents.

He fled to Georgia, where police were alerted to the warrant. He was caught following a dangerous chase where speeds exceeded 100 mph, police said. Police said they found Callanan coughing up drugs and that he suffered a seizure.
