An Arbutus man was killed in his home this week by three people who later dumped his body in the stairwell of a vacant home in Baltimore, Baltimore County police said Saturday.
Three men were charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death on Saturday – Kevin Brooks Pendergraph, 31, of Baltimore; Roy Bernard Munson, 18, of Pikesville; and Eric Patrick Henry, 37, who is homeless. The men were all held without bail and did not have attorneys listed in court records.
On Thursday, someone notified police that Brian Michael Reiser, 49, of the 5600 block of Southwestern Blvd., had not been heard from in a couple of days and that this was out of the ordinary, police said. Detectives began investigating and were led to a vacant home in the 200 block of Collins Ave., in southwest Baltimore's Irvington neighborhood, where Reiser's body was found with traumatic injuries in a stairwell Friday morning. Police did not elaborate on the nature of his injuries.
Police believe Reiser got into an argument with the three men charged in his murder at his home before they killed him and dumped his body in Baltimore.
