BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Continued manhunt. The search is on for the man police say is behind the murder of a Fells Point woman inside her home earlier this month.
Marcus Washington reports.
As the investigation continues, many people who knew Claudia Parodi search for peace while remembering her life.
Her body was found lifeless, stabbed to death inside her own apartment. Police believe the person behind it is the victim’s boyfriend — 29-year-old Juan Morales.
Weeks after the incident, people in the Fells Point neighborhood are still in shock.
“Because you don’t expect nothing like that to happen down here. I’ve been working down here for years and we’ve never had a problem like that down here. It’s a big surprise to anybody.”
Since Claudia Parodi’s death, police say Morales has not been found. On the run, they believe he has left the country, hiding out in Mexico.
As the search continues for Morales, many who knew Parodi try to find peace in knowing what happened.
“She was a student of ours for three and a half years. We get to know our students and we’re like a family, so it was a big loss to us,” said Eddie Garner, Bikram Yoga.
Bikram Yoga, where Parodi attended, held a donation-based class Saturday morning in honor of Parodi’s life. Proceeds will benefit organizations that deal with domestic violence situations.
“There’s an organization locally, My Sister’s House, that half of the money will go to and the other half will go to an organization in Chile, which was brought to my attention by Claudia’s father,” said Garner.
For now, police continue to try to put an end to the unknown questions of what happened to Claudia Parodi and why.
Yoga classes normally raise $1,000. Federal documents suggest Morales is in Mexico because that was his ultimate destination.
