According to a news release from the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office, on Sunday evening, deputies were called out to a house in Westminister, Maryland, for a missing person report. While they were at the house, other deputies were notified about a motorist of a “suspicious condition” at New Windsor Pike.

CBS News Baltimore reported that deputies arrived at New Windsor Pike and found a deceased man who had been stabbed multiple times and appeared to have been dismembered.

Ravi has been booked on recommended charges of first-degree murder and second-degree murder, according to CBS News Baltimore.
