HUMAN REMAINS FOUND IN DORCHESTER CO. IDENTIFIED AS MISSING DELAWARE MAN - REWARD OFFERED FOR INFORMATION




(EAST NEW MARKET, MD) – Maryland State Police homicide investigators have received positive confirmation of the identity of human remains found last weekend in a rural area of Dorchester County.

The body has been identified as Radames Guzman, 40, of Magnolia Delaware. He was positively identified through fingerprints obtained by Maryland State Police crime scene technicians.

The autopsy at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore is ongoing. The cause and manner of death have not been ruled on by the medical examiner’s office at this time. Additional forensic tests and examinations are being conducted. Although an official ruling has not been made, investigators continue to consider this a suspicious death.

The Maryland State Police Homicide Unit continues to lead this investigation and is being assisted by Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office detectives and investigators from the State Police Criminal Enforcement Division. As the investigation has continued, assistance is also being provided by the Delaware State Police.

The investigation began just before noon on August 24, 2014, when Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office deputies were called to a wooded area on Red Hill Road, about one-quarter mile west of Linkwood Road, in East New Market, Md., for the report of human remains found by someone walking through the area. The remains were found in what appeared to be a shallow grave. The Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office requested the investigation be assumed by the Maryland State Police Homicide Unit.

After the initial news release was issued about the recovered human remains, Dorchester County deputies informed State Police homicide investigators that they had been contacted by a relative of an individual who had been reported missing from his home in Magnolia, Delaware. Investigators learned the man, identified as Guzman, had been reported missing to Delaware State Police on August 5, 2014. Family members had not had contact with Guzman since August 2, 2014.

State Police investigators are interviewing family members, friends, and associates of Guzman and attempting to determine what happened to him after he was last seen by his family on August 2nd. Anyone with information about Radames Guzman is urged to contact the Maryland State Police Homicide Unit at the Easton Barrack at 410-822-3101. Callers may remain anonymous. A reward of up to $2,000 is being offered for information about this death by the Crimes Solvers of the Lower Eastern Shore. Crime Solvers may be contacted at 410-548-1776.


City Council Chooses Jack Heath

In a very disappointing move the City Council picked Jack Heath as Terry Cohen's replacement.

Jack is a nice guy but has not been involved with City meetings and got very few votes when he got trounced in election . Not sure what this choice was about, other than Jack being older which is not a reason to choose him.

Council got this one wrong as there were several others that have been more actively involved In what the City is doing

NAACP To Hold Open Forum On Police Misconduct And Treatment Of Minorities

On August 28th the local chapter of the NAACP is planning to hold a public forum discussing Police Misconduct and Treatment of Minorities by local Law Enforcement agencies.  I am just not a fan of this as I feel it only serves to stir up claims of racism against out local law enforcement. I'm not saying there may not be a few bad seeds, but in this day and age there is no way Police are going to be out of line with in car camera systems and civilians with cell phones to record videos.
