Baltimore Cop Arrested After Stepson Was Found Dead Inside Wall of Home

According to reports, a Baltimore police officer was arrested in connection with the death of his 15-year-old stepson.

Eric Banks Jr., 34, is in police custody after his stepson’s body was found in the wall of his home on Tuesday. Officers came to Banks’s home in response to a custody dispute between the teen’s mother and Banks. While searching the home, officers discovered a hole in the wall covered by a white sheet. When asked what it was, Banks told authorities it was a gun safe.

However, upon further investigation, officers found the body of Dasan Jones inside the hole. Banks was subsequently taken into custody but did so unwillingly. According to authorities, Banks tried taking an officer’s gun and repeatedly said, “You’re going to have to end this” to the arresting officers.

Banks was arrested and charged with first and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, disarming a law officer, resisting/interfering with arrest and failure to obey a lawful order
