Karen Ann Norton
1985 Homicide Victim
On December 17, 1985, Karen Ann Norton was murdered in her home in the 100-block of Delrey Avenue, 21228. She had just arrived home from work at approximately 6:45 p.m., when she was attacked and killed.
Mrs. Norton, a newlywed at the time, worked at JCPenney in Security Square Mall. Although there was evidence of a breaking and entering, police believe this was staged to thwart the homicide investigation.
