TOWSON, Md. — UPDATE (DECEMBER 29, 2021 8:55 P.M.):
38-year-old Gary W. Parrish has been charged with first-degree murder in the August 19, 2021 killing of 91-year-old Norman Albert. Parrish is currently being held without bond at the Baltimore County Detention Center.


Baltimore County Police are calling a 91-year-old man's death suspicious, and now they are in search of leads in the case.

Officers found Norman Albert dead inside a home in the 9200 block of Hines Road on August 19.

Police had been called there to check on Albert's well-being.

It's unclear what evidence led police to classify the incident as suspicious.

Norman Albert Jr. tells WMAR-2 News his father lived in the home for about 30 years. He described him as a great guy who was loved by all of his neighbors.

“He talked to everybody. He’s helped people around here. He’s offered to give people rides,” Albert Jr. said. “Today was the worst day of my life. I had to make funeral arrangements for my own dad who doesn’t deserved to be dead right now.”

Homicide detectives are however investigating and asking anyone with information to cal them at 410-307-2020.
