A Baltimore County woman returned to her home in Parkville, only to find her valuables missing and her pet turtle dead on the floor.

Police believe two suspects got into her house on Barnwell Court through an unsecured ground floor window at some point during the night between Jan. 20-21. They stole electronic devices, two TVs, gift cards, checks and jewelry.

Before they left, one of the suspects grabbed Donatella the turtle from her aquarium and stabbed her with a knife-sharpener.

24-year-old Calvin Fogg was arrested in connection to the burglary on Feb. 17. The second suspect, believed to be the person who killed Donatella, is still on the loose. 23-year-old Michael Jones is wanted on burglary charges and aggravated cruelty to kill an animal.

Jones is considered dangers -- do not approach him if you see him. Instead, call police at 410-307-2020. You can also submit a tip to Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.
