BALTIMORE (WMAR) -
It appears that police are making progress in their investigation into the murder of a National Institutes of Health researcher.
Peter Marvit was killed on Sept. 17, after arriving at his home on Chesterfield Avenue in Northeast Baltimore.
Police have released a surveillance photo that appears to show two men running from the scene of that crime.
Marvit sang as a tenor with the Baltimore Choral Arts Society.
“He would have been an important part of the ensemble,” said Tom Hall, the society’s music director. “The vocal ability, the musical ability, the intellectual capacity and the inquisitiveness; the passion for it, the commitment to it and Peter had all of those things in spades.”
The image released by Baltimore City Police was taken by a surveillance camera not far from the scene.
It shows two men running away, one of them appears to be holding something under his left arm.
“This does appear to be a very hopeful break in the case and we certainly hope that if people have some information they'll step forward and help the police solve this,” Hall said.
If you recognize the men in that photo, you're asked to call the City Police Homicide Unit at (410) 396-2100.
The Choral Arts Society will dedicate its concert on December 4th to Peter Marvit. That concert will be shown on ABC-2 on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
