BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Detectives are investigating after a 70-year-old woman’s body was found inside her Dundalk home on Thursday. Police have found the woman’s son, who was missing for several days.
Baltimore County Police were called to the home in the 200 block of Walnut Avenue on Wednesday for two missing persons. Officers were told that Gwendolyn Blondell McCullers had not been in contact with her family for several days. McCullers lived at the home with her son, who also could not be located by family members.
Police were called back to the house the next day, when Gwendolyn McCullers’ body was found hidden in the house. She was pronounced dead by Baltimore County Fire Department personnel on Thursday just before 5 p.m. She is believed to have suffered from blunt force trauma to the upper body, according to police. The medical examiner has ruled her death a homicide.
“Apparently, they had constant contact with her. When they hadn’t heard from her, it raised concern to the point where they went to the house initially on the 24th, they continued to check-up, trying to locate her,” Baltimore City Police Corporal Shawn Vinson said.
Police found Gwendolyn’s son, Darrin Michael McCullers, Friday evening in Dundalk. Authorities were concerned for his well-being and were looking to question him regarding the incident, according to Baltimore County Police spokesperson Cpl. Shawn Vinson.
Police say Darrin is not a suspect at this time.
