The Baltimore County Police Department's final,official crime statistics for 2013 show reductions in overall crime and in almost every category of serious crime.

Chief Jim Johnson said these statistics -- which continue a years-long reduction in crime in Baltimore County -- are a testament to the quality of police personnel and the soundness of law enforcement strategies that involve identifying trends, understanding why trends occur and directing resources to the problem.

The Baltimore County Police Department (BCoPD) compiles crime statistics in accordance with the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program. The final data presented here has been certified as accurate under the UCR system.

Here are the highlights of the 2013 crime statistics:

  • Total crime fell by 5.2 percent against previous five-year average.
  • Part I violent crime, the most serious violent crime, fell by 5.5 percent against the previous five-year average.
  • The number of homicides in 2013 dropped by seven cases – a nearly 26 percent drop – when compared to the previous five-year average.
  • Rapes fell by 19 cases and aggravated assaults by 258 cases.

Baltimore County Police have cleared two homicide cases that had gone cold off of DNA matches.

Karen Delores Brown

On October 5, 1994 at 2:25 p.m., a maintenance worker discovered the body of an adult female victim under plastic bags in the area of the Liberty Dam. The victim was later identified as 32-year-old Karen Delores Brown

An autopsy concluded that the cause of death was blunt force trauma and strangulation and the manner of death was homicide.

Detectives conducted a thorough investigation into the incident, but were not able to develop any information that led to the positive identification of a suspect.

In October of 2013, the case detective learned that DNA evidence from the scene of the murder matched a profile in the FBI’s Combined DNA Index System (CODIS). That profile identified the suspect, who at the time was incarcerated. Detectives interviewed the suspect, who denied involvement in the homicide.

Before the suspect could be officially charged, he was found deceased in his cell of natural causes.

Annelise Hyang Suk Lee

On December 13, 1999 at 9:31 a.m., the body of 27-year-old Annelise Hyang Suk Lee was found in her apartment located in the unit-block of Hartley Circle 21117. Her employer called advising that she had not been at work and could not be reached by phone. Police found her body in her bedroom.

An autopsy conducted the next day concluded that the cause of death was blunt force trauma and strangulation and the manner of death was homicide.

Detectives conducted a thorough investigation into the incident, but were not able to develop any information that led to the positive identification of a suspect.

In March of 2013, several items of evidence were re-examined and a DNA profile was developed from one of the items. That profile was later found to match a profile on file with the FBI’s Combined DNA Index System (CODIS).

The CODIS match indicated the identity of the suspect who had a criminal record.

The suspect was incarcerated after the murder on other charges. When he was released, he fled the state. He committed suicide after being arrested on charges unrelated to this incident.

Cases reviewed by the Baltimore County State’s Attorney’s Office

Both cases were reviewed by the Baltimore County State’s Attorney’s Office. That review concluded that the persons identified by DNA evidence were the persons responsible for the homicides.
