Derrick Peterson, 23, had just pulled into a parking space in front of his home in the 9600 block of Barrel House Road in Laurel on Dec. 17, 2001 when he was shot and killed. The homicide occurred at approximately 9:00 p.m.
Witnesses at the time reported seeing a black male of average height and build fleeing the scene on foot, carrying what appeared to be a bag or bulky item. He got into a waiting vehicle driven by a large black male, described as in his mid- to late 20s, six feet to six feet three inches tall, approximately 275 pounds. The vehicle was described as a four-door boxy, white sedan, similar to a Crown Victoria.

Officers responding to the location for a report of shots fired found Cook deceased and Hughes suffering from a gunshot wound. Hughes told police they were waiting for someone to arrive so they could go to a club in Baltimore. For a while, they passed the time waiting at the basketball court in the rear of the buildings.
There was a group of unknown males hanging around the court, all wearing hoodies. Cook and Hughes returned to the parking lot area and shots were fired, striking both men. Hughes reported he did not see who fired or where the shots came from.

Ruth Naomi Thorp, 21, of Glen Burnie was found strangled at a hotel on U.S. 1 in Elkridge on April 14, 1982. She checked in with a man that investigators believe was a known acquaintance.
Thorp, whose maiden name was DiDomenico and grew up in Catonsville, lived in Glen Burnie at the time of her death. She was survived by her husband and their young daughter and still has family in the Catonsville area.
Police released a composite sketch of a suspect. He was described as a white male, 22-24 years old, five feet seven inches to five feet ten inches tall, with a slender build, light brown hair, last seen wearing blue jeans with a large, multicolored patch on the right leg and a waist-length, light blue jacket. He may have been driving a two-door American-made vehicle with white or gold pinstripes on the sides.
A reward of up to $10,000 is being offered for information in this case. Anyone with information is urged to contact police. Callers may remain anonymous.
Laney Lee (Linda) McGadney, was killed on March 29, 1982. Her body was found on a vacant lot in a yet-to-be developed subdivision in the area of Kings Contrivance in Columbia. She was 28-years-old and the mother of four children.
McGadney was last seen walking from her home on Oakland Mills Road with the intention of going shopping in the Owen Brown Village Center. Witnesses reported seeing her enter a vehicle in the area of Oakland Mills Road and Oak Hall Lane.
She was stabbed multiple times. Her body was found in a wooded area off Route 32 between Kindler Road and Hammond High School. An unknown male called police and provided detailed directions to the scene prior to the murder being reported to the public. Do you recognize this voice?
Police continue to seek information regarding the double homicide of Joseph Selby, 56, and his wife, Betty Selby, 51, on March 6, 1981. The couple died in their home at 12102 Frederick Road, Ellicott City, at approximately 9:40 p.m. They died from smoke inhalation as the result of an arson fire set inside their home while they slept.
Mr. Selby was the manager of The Enchanted Forest, the former fairytale-themed amusement park on Route 40 frequented by generations of families until its closure in 1995. Investigation would indicate that the perpetrator(s) had a grudge against them or someone in the family. It should have been obvious to the arsonist that the home was occupied at the time of the fire.
A reward of up to $10,000 for information is being offered in the case.
Anyone with information is urged to contact police; callers may remain anonymous.
