The investigation started Feb. 14, 2009, when a maintenance worker discovered Daniel Coverston unresponsive in his Towson apartment in the 7000 block of Lachlan Circle. The initial emergency call came in as a cardiac arrest, but police said he died from a brutal violent act.

"They shot him in the back of the head while he was lying face-down on his bed," Williams said.

Detectives know Daniel Coverston left his apartment door unlocked while recovering from eye surgery so that friends could check on him.

A life taken too soon and the Coverstons want answers.

"Someone came in, shot him and left, and they have no evidence in that way," Linda said. Dan didn't always follow the straight and narrow, but even if you don't, it doesn't mean that you need to die," said Paul.

Some people came forward saying Daniel had stood up to a friend's ex-boyfriend and that he had agreed to testify in someone's case. The Coverstons wonder if either lead to his untimely death.

Poor guy, recovering from eye surgery in his own home where he is shot multiple times and robbed on Valentine's day no less, that killer has no heart! imo.

''Detectives still need your help solving 2009 cold case''




''BALTIMORE COUNTY — Baltimore County Detectives are still working to solve the 2009 homicide of Daniel Ho Coverston.

These detectives are interested in hearing from people who frequently visited the area near the Alameda Shopping Center where a payphone was located.

They think the person who made the call from that phone may have been the same person that entered his apartment and killed him as he was resting from his surgery.''

''After investigation, officers determined that he was suffering from a gunshot wound to the head and was declared dead at the scene.

The only clue investigators found was that the last phone call he received came from a phone booth that was located on Loch Raven Boulevard at Belvedere Avenue.''
