Police Investigating Murder Of 97-Year-Old Man

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baltimore tallies yet another murder overnight Saturday. This time, a 97-year-old man was left for dead in his east Baltimore home.

Devin Bartolotta has more on how it happened, and what his family is saying in the aftermath.

Police are calling on neighbors to help catch a killer.

The 1700 block of Darley Avenue was always home for 97-year-old Waddell Tate.

“He lived in this neighborhood, everybody knew him. Quiet, mild tempered, he lost his wife several years ago. But he decided to just live here,” says Deborah Broom.

But his home became a horrific crime scene Friday evening, when family found him dead — beaten to death, police say, by an unknown attacker — who appears to have broken in.

Police aren’t sure if this was a robbery or if anything was taken from the home, but did not mince words when talking about the attacker.

DNA links second man to Coral Springs murder case, police say

After a six-year investigation, DNA recovered from spit and a juice bottle linked two men to the murder of a Coral Springs man, court documents say.

Jason David Martinez, 28, of New York, was arrested there in October and extradited to Broward County in February on suspicion of committing the 2011 stabbing murder of Michael Hamilton, 31, of Coral Springs.

Kadian Andre Garfield Roper, 37, of Coral Springs, was taken into custody Wednesday for the same offense. Both men are being held without bond in a Broward County jail.

Hamilton was last seen alive at 8: 30 p.m. July 9, 2011, at the apartment he shared with a roommate in the 9800 block of Northwest 33rd Street.

Saint John deputy police chief faces arbitration hearing in Dennis Oland case

A high-ranking officer of the Saint John Police Force will face an arbitration hearing in connection with the murder trial of Dennis Oland.

No details of alleged misconduct by Deputy Chief Glen McCloskey are listed in the hearing notice posted Monday on the New Brunswick Police Commission website.

But Steve Roberge, the executive director and CEO of the commission, confirmed the allegations against McCloskey “are related to the Oland investigation and proceedings.”

Police Chief John Bates has previously described the accusations as “for lack of a better choice of words, sort of a witness tampering.”

Arbitration hearings are scheduled “when the subject officer and their chief of police, or civic authority or commission are unable to come to an agreement on corrective measures resulting from the disciplinary process,” Roberge told CBC
