Homicide Victim, 1995

Baltimore County Police continue to seek information from the public regarding the murder of Olga Grigoryevna Sexton, 36 years old. On December 7, 1995 at approximately 1:30 a.m., police were dispatched to the unit block of Hamlet Drive, 21117 after her husband came home from work and found her deceased from trauma to the upper body. She was fully clothed and lying face down.

Olga Sexton was originally from Russia and had been in the United States for approximately four years at the time of her murder.

Description of Suspect

Homicide detectives released a sketch of a man wanted for questioning in her murder early in their investigation. The man, who is depicted in a composite sketch, is described as white, 28 to 33 years old, 5’9” to 6’ tall, 220 to 230 pounds, with a stocky build, blondish hair and no facial hair. The subject was seen near where the victim worked at a spa in the 2000 block of York Road in Timonium.

Locations of Found Belongings

Detectives determined that credit cards belonging to Olga Sexton were recovered near ATMs at two different banks in Baltimore County:

  • NationsBank, 700 block of Dulaney Valley Road—Her credit card was found at 12:57 a.m. on December 7, 1995, a half hour prior to the victim’s body being discovered. This card was given to police by a citizen later that day.
  • Patapsco Federal, 1200 block of Merritt Boulevard: Her credit card was found at noon on December 7, 1995.
