Each week on Midday, it is our practice to read the names of the people who have lost their lives to violence in Baltimore City. We do so to stand in witness to their untimely deaths, and to remember their families and friends in their hour of grief.
Every week, as the Baltimore Police Department releases their identities, we will list the names of homicide victims on this page.
We compile their names from researcher Ellen Worthing's blog site, called chamspage; from the Baltimore Sun; and from the Baltimore Police Department's media listserve, and the BPD's public Facebook page.
So far in 2021 (as of January 19), 11 people have lost their lives to violence in Baltimore City.
Dereck Jackson, age 49.
Tiffany Wilson, age 33.
Leonard Heath, age 69.
Deyonte Davis, age 4.
Curtis Berry, age 20.
Marvin Dessaure, age 33.
Terrell Scott, age 30.
