Update (December 18, 2015, 12:50 p.m.)

Terrence L. Jenkins, 49, of the unit block of Skipjack Court, 21221, has been charged with first degree murder in the death of Shelly Fillion, his girlfriend, also of the unit block of Skipjack Court. Jenkins is also a suspect in last night's murder of a woman in the 3600 block of Pulaski Highway in Baltimore City.

Jenkins was arrested last night in Baltimore City at about 5:30 p.m. He is held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

Fillion's body was found Monday afternoon at the Skipjack Court address. Baltimore County homicide detectives quickly identified Jenkins as a possible suspect in the Skipjack Court murder. Yesterday afternoon, they received information that Jenkins made a phone call from an address in the 3600 block of Pulaski Highway. A team of detectives conducted a surveillance operation at and around that house. They saw a man they believed might be Jenkins enter the home after a woman let him in. The detectives maintained the surveillance. While the suspect was inside the house, detectives found a Ford Explorer belonging to Shelly Fillion parked nearby. 

Detectives approached Jenkins when he left the house, about 30 minutes after he entered, and followed him as he walked toward Fillion's vehicle. Jenkins fled on foot, with the foot chase continuing across Pulaski Highway. Jenkins was taken into custody without further incident.

Detectives entered the Pulaski Highway house, intending to glean information from whoever was in the house. Instead, they found the body of a woman, whose relationship with the suspect is unclear at this point. Baltimore City Police are investigating  the Pulaski Highway homicide.

Both homicide investigations are ongoing. BCoPD and BPD are cooperating fully on these cases.

Original release:

Police are investigating as a homicide the death of a woman whose body was found yesterday in her Essex home.

The victim is Shelly Lynn Fillion, 47, of the unit block of Skipjack Court in Precinct 11/Essex. A family member who checked on Fillion yesterday afternoon found the woman's body and notified police. Fillion had not contacted her family since Saturday.

Police were dispatched at about 5 p.m. Monday. They found Fillion's body located partially under a pull-out sofa in the living room. The woman had suffered traumatic injuries. The Office of the Medical Examiner will rule on the exact cause and manner of death, but police are treating this as a homicide.

The case remains under investigation, but detectives do not believe this was a random act.

Update (December 15, 11:30 a.m.):

The man and woman found dead yesterday inside a home in the 100 block Greenridge Rd. in Precinct 7/Cockeysville were a mother and son who died in an apparent murder-suicide.

The mother is Carryl Jean Calvert, 78. The son is Keith Michael Calvert, 42. Both lived at the Greenridge Road address.

Detectives learned that Keith Calvert was the sole caregiver for his mother. Neighbors interviewed by Homicide detectives said Keith Calvert had expressed frustration over the burdens of caring alone for his mother, and that he seemed depressed.

Both the mother and son died of gunshot wounds. Police believe Keith Calvert shot his mother before turning the gun on himself. The two had been dead for several days.

Original release (December 14, 2015  8:14 p.m.):

A man and a woman were found dead in a home in the 100 block of Greenridge Road, 21093, Monday afternoon.

Police were called by neighbors at approximately 4:23 p.m. after they noticed mail piling up at the residence.  When police made entry into the home, they found a deceased middle-aged man and a deceased elderly female, both with traumatic injuries.

The deaths preliminarily are being investigated as a possible murder and suicide. There is no danger to the community and police are not looking for any suspects at this time.

The Baltimore County Police Department Homicide Unit continues to investigate this incident.

Baltimore County Homicide Detectives are continuing to investigate a September 2014 shooting in Woodlawn that left a man deceased.

On September 26, 2014, at 11:45 p.m., Baltimore County Police and Fire personnel responded to the parking lot of BJ Mallard’s bar located in the 1100 block of Ingleside Avenue 21207. When they arrived at the location, officers found 22-year-old Donyue Faison of the 700 block of Edmondson Avenue 21228 lying in the parking lot suffering from at least one gunshot wound. He was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The initial investigation into this incident has indicated that Faison had been at the bar when he became involved in an altercation with another person. The altercation stopped in the parking lot but was about to start again when the victim was shot by an unknown person. Investigators believe that the person that the victim was arguing with was not responsible for the murder.

Homicide detectives conducted a thorough investigation into this incident; however, they have not been able to develop any information that positively identified any suspects. They are now looking to the public for help.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call police at 410-307-2020 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.
