Photo of Brian Wallen, found deceased in a wooded area of Loch Raven Reservoir. The body of a Lutherville man missing since last April was found Sunday by hikers in a heavily wooded area of the Loch Raven Reservoir.

Brian Keith Wallen, 52, is a presumed suicide, though the Office of the State Medical Examiner has not yet ruled on the cause and manner of death. Investigators do not suspect foul play.

Wallen, of the 500 block of Wyngate Road, was reported missing on April 28, 2016. Police at the time found a suicide note at his home, and they found his silver Jeep near the intersection of Old Bosley and Dulaney Valley roads. An extensive search by BCoPD revealed no trace of Wallen, however.

Wallen was wanted on a Federal Criminal Complaint filed by the U.S. Attorney for Maryland alleging his involvement in a mail fraud scheme.

His body was found at least a mile from where police had found his vehicle almost a year ago, in a heavily wooded area east of Dulaney Valley Road, about a half-mile from the Villa Maria School.

UPDATE (January 19, 2017  1:45 p.m.):

Baltimore County Police Homicide detectives have charged a suspect in connection with the fatal stabbing of a teenager on Twin Lakes Court last night.

Markel Justin Dates (17), of the unit block of Tentmill Lane in Pikesville, has been charged as an adult with first-degree murder and is being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

Just after 7:30 p.m. last night police were called to the area of Twin Lakes Court and Church Lane in Precinct 4 for an unconscious subject lying in the roadway. When police found the victim, 15-year-old Moses Ayele Lorenso of the 4100 block of Hanwell Road in Randallstown, they discovered at least one stab wound to the upper body and began administering first aid. He was transported to Sinai Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police say Lorenso and Dates had been involved in an ongoing dispute when they happened upon each other while walking on Twin Lakes Court. They became involved in a verbal argument that escalated into a physical encounter, ending when Dates pulled out a knife and stabbed Lorenso, then fled the scene.

The incident remains under investigation by the Baltimore County Police Homicide Unit.
