A 28-year-old man died Sunday when an early morning fire heavily damaged his Parkville area home.

Daniel James Hutchins, of the 8700 block of Lackawanna Ave., 21234 was found by Baltimore County fire crews, deceased in the second floor master bedroom after a one-alarm fire. The cause of the fire remains undetermined. Baltimore County fire investigators determined the fire was not intentionally set.

A dog also died in the fire.

Two other people, as well as another dog, were on the first floor at the time of the fire and managed to escape just as the stairway collapsed. Hutchins, tragically, was trapped upstairs and could not escape.

Fire crews responded at 3:44 a.m. The first arriving unit, Parkville's Engine 10, found the home fully involved with fire, with fire venting through the roof. For about an hour, the fire was too intense to permit firefighters to enter the building.

When fire crews did enter the building, they found that the fire had burned multiple holes through the floor, as well as a 20' by 10' hole in the roof; at one point commanders ordered all personnel to evacuate for safety.

The Baltimore County Police Department would like to thank the Baltimore City Police Department and the County and City citizens who became involved and aided us in the search and capture of this felon.

Original Release (February 27, 2017 1:40 p.m.):

Baltimore County Police have obtained a warrant for the arrest of a suspect who needlessly killed a pet turtle during a burglary.

The resident returned to find her home ransacked, and her pet turtle, Donatella, dead on the floor.

The investigation determined that during the overnight hours from January 20-21, while the victim was away, two suspects entered the residence in the unit block of Barnwell Court in Parkville through an unsecured ground floor window. They stole numerous electronic devices and accessories, two television sets, gift-cards, checks, and jewelry. Before leaving, one of the suspects removed Donatella from her aquarium home, and impaled her with a knife-sharpener.

On February 17 police arrested one of the suspects, identified as Calvin Krasheen Fogg (24) of the 4400 block of Marble Hall Road, 21218.

The second suspect, believed to be the person responsible for killing Donatella, is still outstanding. He is identified as Michael Kennard Jones (23), previously known to reside in the 3200 block of McElderry Street, 21205. He is wanted on charges of 1st degree burglary, aggravated cruelty to kill an animal, and is also wanted in connection with a previous home invasion robbery with a gun.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Michael Jones is asked to contact police at 410-307-2020. Do not approach Michael Jones, as he is considered a dangerous subject.
