Orioles stadium usher

Police in Baltimore have identified human remains found in a container nearby a vacant church earlier this month as Baltimore Orioles employee Versey Spell, who was reported missing last year.

The 75-year-old Oriole Park at Camden Yards usher was first reported missing on October 19, according to a press statement from the Baltimore Police Department at the time. Her residence in Northwest Baltimore’s 3900 block of Berrington Road was her final known whereabouts.

Just a few blocks from Spell’s apartment, on March 7, police were summoned to the 3900 block of Liberty Heights Avenue where they found a “black canister containing possibly human remains.”

The cause of death was determined to be a homicide when the remains were taken to the medical examiner’s office the next day.

Police verified on Tuesday that the remains found belonged to Spell.

The statement added, “Homicide detectives are aggressively investigating this homicide.”

In a statement, the Orioles expressed their “heartfelt sympathies” to Spell’s friends and family.

According to The Baltimore Sun, the statement said, “We are heartbroken to hear of the demise of long-time Orioles usher, Versey Spell. “We at the Orioles express our deepest sympathies to her loved ones. Her friendly greetings at the ballgame will be missed.”

CBS Baltimore reported earlier this month that Spell’s family said the doors to her home were forced open and an unknown woman was found in her bed. They also said that Spell was not in the house, but that some of her things, like her cane and walker, were still there.

But her glasses and a few other personal items were found outside the house.
