This is an update to prior story.

On Thursday, February 14, 2019, at 2:59 p.m., officers responded to the 5200 block of Wasena Avenue, Brooklyn, Maryland for a burglary. 
The 911 caller told police dispatchers that his mother had been murdered and a suspect had ran out of the residence. 
Upon arrival officers made contact with the 911 caller outside of the residence who was identified as Brent Ryan Faulkner, a 25-year-old male from the 5200 block of Wasena Avenue. 
Officers entered the residence to locate any victims and possible suspects. Officers discovered an adult female with apparent trauma. Fire department personnel arrived on scene and pronounced the female deceased. The deceased female was identified as Dona Lee Faulkner, a 52-year-old female of the same address and the mother of Brent Faulkner.
Brent Faulkner was transported to the Criminal Investigation Division to be interviewed. Several detectives converged on the area in order to conduct a canvass and interview witnesses. Homicide detectives assisted by the Evidence Collection Unit executed a search warrant on the residence and collected multiple pieces of evidence.
