A church sexton was found fatally stabbed inside a Baltimore house of worship and investigators are desperately trying to track down her killer, police said.
Evelyn Player, 69, was found dead early Tuesday inside a bathroom at Southern Baptist Church in East Baltimore, where police said she had arrived just after sunrise to let in construction workers, the Baltimore Sun reported.
Police Commissioner Michael Harrison told reporters the longtime church sexton was discovered in the bathroom by a maintenance worker about an hour after she arrived.
Player was identified as the victim by her daughter, Alethea Finch, who is struggling to process her mother’s violent death inside the church where she worshipped for decades.
“Who would want to hurt my mother?” Finch said
