    Barnes, missing since late December, has been the subject of a multi-jurisdictional missing persons investigation since at least January, officials said.
    Preliminary autopsies failed to determine what caused the deaths of Barnes or the unidentified male, said Terrence Sheridan, superintendent of the Maryland State Police, and there was no evidence linking the two deaths other than the proximity of their bodies.

    "We're now at stage one of a new phase of the investigation," Baltimore Police Commissioner Frederick Bealefeld told reporters this evening. "There's a mountain of investigative work that needs to be done."​
    "There was no indication of any overt wounds or injuries to Phylicia Barnes' body," Sheridan said.​
    "Nothing was found on the bodies, attached to the bodies when we recovered them from the river," he added....​

    Phylicia Barnes’ Sister Wanted Restraining Order Against Ex-Boyfriend


    BALTIMORE --
    Eyewitness News has new details on the investigation into the death of a Monroe teen who was killed while visiting her family in Baltimore.

    "I had no clue that all of these guys -- she had two or three male roommates and Michael Johnson was still there with a key," Sallis-Mustafa said.
    Family members said Johnson and Deena were broken up at the time, but that he was still in and out of her apartment. He was one of several people questioned by police after Phylicia disappeared.

    Less than two months later, in February, Deena Barnes filed a petition for a restraining order against Johnson. In it, she said she felt fearful because Johnson contacted her during the investigation into her sister's disappearance, even though the two were instructed not to have contact with each other during that time. The judge denied the request, but it's not clear why....
