ESSEX, Md. (CBSDC/AP) — A warrant has been issued for Lennell Ellis who is wanted in the death of a man whose body was found in a burning work truck in Essex.
The warrant issued Wednesday charges the 32-year-old Ellis of Rosedale with first-degree murder in the death of 21-year-old Daryl Augustus II of Parkville.
Baltimore County police say Augustus was visiting a woman in Carney on Saturday morning when Ellis, who used to be romantically involved with the woman, arrived. Investigators believe Augustus was killed in the apartment and his body and his company work truck were taken to Essex, where the truck was found burning.
Augustus death was ruled a homicide, caused by femoral artery laceration. The cause of the fire is still under investigation. Anyone with information about Ellis whereabouts is asked to call 410-307-2020.
