New Surveillance Video Could Contain Clues In Fed Hill Death, Police Say

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Police hope new video can lead them to a person of interest in the death of a man in Federal Hill last month.

Edralin Montebon’s death has not been ruled a homicide. Police are still waiting on a medical examiner’s report to determine what led to his death. However, homicide detectives are investigating the matter.

On July 22, around 1:10 a.m., officers were called to the area of East Cross Street, where they found the 34-year-old unconscious. They said it appeared he had been in a fight. He later died.

“We’re just trying to piece together all that occurred,” Baltimore Police spokesman T.J. Smith says. “The victim in this case was involved in some sort of dispute.”

Investigators tell WJZ it was a Friday canvass of the neighborhood that led to new information.

Take a look at the new surveillance video below to see if you can help them identify the person of interest.

“This is very upsetting to hear about,” says a woman who works as a Federal Hill bar.

Weeks after his death—a small memorial remains on this sign in honor of Montaban.

Investigators aren’t calling this a homicide just yet, they’re still waiting on a medical examiner’s report to determine what led to his death.

“We know that an assault took place, but is the assault the reason for the death,” says T.J. Smith.

Both people, and police hope the answers can come from viewing the video.

Metro Crime Stoppers is offering a $2,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest in this case.
