2 Found Dead In Oakland, Md., Woods

OAKLAND, Md. (AP) — Court records indicate a stormy relationship between two young people found dead in Oakland.

The Garrett County Sheriff’s Office says deputies found the bodies of Timothy Lax, 24, and Jessica Baker, 18, on Wednesday in a wooded area of the western Maryland town. The agency is calling it a double homicide.

Online court records show that Lax had obtained a temporary peace order against Baker but then had it rescinded on Friday.

On Tuesday, the state dropped a charge of telephone misuse against him involving Baker as the alleged victim.

Each had also recently accused the other of assault and harassment. The assault charge against Baker was dropped on Tuesday but Lax faced a June 15 trial date for allegedly stalking, harassing and assaulting her.

      It was the young man that had the peace order! “Online court records show that Lax had obtained a temporary peace order against Baker but then had it rescinded on Friday.”

    I live in Oakland and I knew Jessica she will be missed

    I live in Oakland and this is a crime that is not typically seen here. I did not know Jessica personally, but I have been friends with her Aunt since elementary school. It is so sad to see two young lives wasted. They are still investigating to see who actually killed both Jessica and Timothy. They did have a rocky relationship and I am unsure as to why they were together that night, but I guess no one will ever really know for sure. Keep their families in your prayers, especially the parents.

    Domestic abuse happens everywhere. People just hide it better in “nice” neighborhoods.

    ITS so funny when it happens outside the city of Baltimore they are to great people and that is such a great neighborhood .Well i guess you can say it now there goes the neighborhood .

  9. Bullfrog says:

    Was this a double homicide or was this a murder suicide? If indeed it was a double homicide then that would mean that a killer is on the loose. More details should have been released to the public if their safety is in jeopardy. My heart felt sympathy goes out to both of these families. Two beautiful young people who had the world to live for have left us years too soon, they shall forever be missed. May the family and friends of these two young people feel comfort in remembering their smile, remembering their laughter, remember their kindness. Our love shall libe on for ever. Heaven has two more angels tonight.
