BALTIMORE — A man's body was discovered Wednesday night inside the trunk of a burning car in Northwest Baltimore.

The car had been located in the 4300 block of Windsor Mill Road.

Inside, 39-year-old Steven Gillus appeared to have suffered from gunshot or stab wounds.

By Thursday afternoon, Baltimore Police detectives found out the whole thing started in Anne Arundel County.

Police there got a call around 9pm for a possible abduction in the parking garage at the Arundel Preserve in Hanover.

A witness told officers they saw a man stabbing someone and forcing them into a car at gunpoint.

The car then took off in an unknown direction.

Arriving Anne Arundel County officers located a potential crime scene on the second floor of the garage, but found no signs of a victim.

About two-hours later is when Baltimore Police were notified of the car on fire.

Investigators found Gillus inside, and determined that he was the same person the witness mentioned earlier.

Police have revealed no information on a potential motive or suspect.

Anyone with information is asked to call detectives at 410-222-4731.
