3 Charged in Halethorpe Homicide: Police
Three men have been charged with first-degree murder in connection with a homicide off Southwestern Boulevard, police said.

Brian Michael Reiser, 49, of the 5600 block of Southwestern Boulevard, had been out of touch for a couple of days, causing an individual to file a missing person's report on Thursday, June 19, according to a statement from the  Baltimore County Police Department.

Investigation led detectives to a vacant home in Baltimore City, where they found his body, according to the report.

Police said the three men were arguing with Reiser at his home in Halethorpe and during the dispute, they killed him.

Then they took Reiser's body to a vacant home in Baltimore City, where they dumped it in a stairwell, according to the report.

Detectives think Reiser was killed Tuesday but say the death could have occurred anytime until he was found on Friday, according to Cpl. John Wachter of the Baltimore County Police Department. Police said the victim suffered from traumatic injuries.

Three people have been charged with first-degree murder in connection with Reiser's death, police said: Kevin Brooks Pendergraph, 31, of the 6600 block of Eberle Drive in Reisterstown; Roy Bernard Munson, 18, of the 4100 block of Colby Road in Pikesville; and Eric Patrick Henry, 37, of no fixed address.

Pendergraph, Munson and Henry were being held without bond at the Baltimore County Detention Center, according to police, who said the incident remains under investigation.
