Police Release Photo of Knife Used in UMES Murder
LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC/AP) — Police are hoping the uniqueness of the murder weapon used to kill a University of Maryland Eastern Shore student in February will lead to an arrest.
Maryland State Police released on Wednesday a photo of the knife believed to have been used to murder Edmond St. Clair, 21, of Severn, on Feb. 16 on the school’s campus.
The knife in the photo is a Remington Sportsman’s Series folding knife with a 3-1/2 inch blade, according to police. The knife’s handle is reddish-orange with a black camouflage print.
Police found the knife near where St. Clair, a junior at the school, was murdered at about 9 p.m. Feb. 16. According to police, St. Clair, his brother and another young man were driving through the campus that night when they came across three or four people walking in the street. The groups started fighting, and St. Clair was stabbed.
Investigators believe the orange and black camouflage handle might be enough to prompt the memory of someone who may have seen the knife before.
Police ask anyone with information about the knife to contact police.
