Baltimore City Police are trying to confirm whether a man found dead inside a residence at the Perkins Homes housing project in Southeast Baltimore Wednesday night is the same man wanted for a murder in Parkville Tuesday morning .
On Wednesday, Baltimore County Police Detectives obtained an arrest warrant for 38-year-old Cory Shirell Bowman charging him with the first degree murder of his estranged wife, 28-year-old Victoria Vernetta Glover. Glover was shot to death in front of her 3-year-old son .

Late Wednesday evening, the Baltimore City Police Department Tactical Unit made entry to the location in the 1500 Block of May Ct in reference to the search warrant.
A male was found inside the location, in a bathroom, deceased from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The gun used in the incident, police say, is believed to be the same gun used to shoot Glover.
The identity of the deceased male has not been confirmed at this time but a relative tells ABC2 News the deceased man is the suspect, Cory Bowman . Police say an acquaintance of Bowman's exited the apartment before officers gained entry.
Bowman was identified as a suspect in the Parkville murder, police say, after they were able to link him to the shotgun used to shoot Glover. Investigators say he also made statements after the murder, confessing to the crime.
