The incident that preceded Howe’s death unfolded in Sunday’s early morning hours, when the county’s SWAT team responded to the 4200 block of Mary Ridge Drive in Randallstown, after a man, Palmer White, 71, called 911 saying he had committed a murder.
“He indicated he had just killed his wife, Dianne,” Johnson said.
SWAT officers entered the house, where they discovered Palmer White dead as well.
Within hours of the apparent murder-suicide, Howe began to feel pains. He was rushed to Carroll County General Hospital, and later transferred to Johns Hopkins, where he died.
“Unlike a light switch, you just cannot turn these incidents off,” Johnson said. “It takes hours to calm down from these high stress situations.”
Greenspan's depravity knows no bounds. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family, friends, and colleagues of Lt. Howe.
