At least one pieces it together as a suicide: A medical school professor, a 53-year-old woman, is found drowned in the Baltimore Harbor six months after her longtime partner – also a Hopkins med school professor, which whom she collaborated on research – dies of a heart attack.


From a Baltimore Sun article about her.

Dr. O’Hearn was an overachiever from the start, according to her sister. They grew up with four brothers in Wilton, Conn., where O’Hearn was president of her 1977 class, homecoming queen and co-captain of the field hockey team at Wilton High School.

She went on to Yale University, where she sang with “perfect pitch” for the Yale Slavic Chorus and earned dual degrees in biology and Russian and Eastern European Studies in 1981. Her sister said she also studied philosophy at the university. She went on to the Johns Hopkins medical school.
