“Based on the investigation and what was found at the scene, again, I can’t go too much into it, there is reason to believe that this is a homicide,” said Officer DJ Moore with Baltimore County Police.

Albert Sr. lived on the 9200 block of Hines Rd. for years and his son lived just two doors up. Family members said when they didn’t hear from the 91-year-old last Thursday, they called police and when first responders arrived, they found the 91-year-old dead inside his home.
