PRINCESS ANNE, MD) – Maryland State Police and University of Maryland Eastern Shore Police are searching for those responsible for the murder of a studentof injuries sustained when he was assaulted during an apparent altercation on the Somerset County campus.
The victim is identified as Edmond A. St. Clair, 21, of Severn, Md., who was a student at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. He was pronounced dead at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury
Three unidentified suspects are being sought by police at this time. They are described only as African American males in their late teens or early twenties.
The Maryland State Police Homicide Unit was contacted by University of Maryland Eastern Shore Police Department Interim Chief Kenny Collins, who requested State Police respond and conduct the investigation. In addition to campus police officers, State Police homicide investigators are being assisted by troopers and criminal investigators from the Princess Anne Barrack and crime scene technicians from the Maryland State Police Forensic Sciences Division.
The preliminary investigation indicates that a campus police officer was parked in her patrol car in the parking lot of the “Pavilion” on College Backbone Road, when a male, later identified as the victim’s brother, came running to her police car and reported his brother had been stabbed. The officer responded to the nearby scene and found the victim lying on the roadside next to his girlfriend’s car.
The officer saw the victim had sustained injuries to his upper torso. EMS personnel were summoned to the scene and the victim was transported to the Peninsula Regional Medical Center.
Investigators have learned the victim was apparently a passenger in his girlfriend’s Honda that was being driven by his brother. Another male passenger was in the rear of the vehicle. Neither the victim’s brother nor the other male are students at the university, but both were visiting for the weekend.
According to witnesses interviewed so far, the three were driving through campus when they encountered three or four people walking in the street. Some type of altercation ensued and the victim was stabbed with an as yet unidentified weapon.
Police have no reason at this time to believe this was a random assault. The motive appears to be the result of an argument or ongoing dispute. State Police are continuing to conduct interviews and serve search warrants as the investigation progresses. Anyone who witnessed this crime or has information is urged to contact Maryland State Police at the Princess Anne Barrack at 443-260-3700. Callers may remain anonymous.
University students were warned of the crime through their campus security alert system. Students have been provided a number to call, 410-651-8484, if they have questions or concerns.
The investigation is continuing.

Almost a month to the day, the family of Winfield C. Fisher III, 32, of the 6100 block of Westbrooke Dr. in Salisbury, who was killed in a police involved shooting on the evening of Tuesday March 18, 2014, is filing a wrongful death civil lawsuit against the Maryland State Police.
Fisher allegedly struck and/or dragged a MSP Trooper with his car while attempting to elude police after Fisher had stopped off at the MSP barrack on Dagsboro Rd. to have a vehicle repair order signed off. While there troopers were seeking to investigate Fisher for an unspecified reason.
The state police news release described what happened:"The preliminary information indicates a man entered the Salisbury Barrack shortly before 8:30 p.m. tonight and asked the duty officer to check a vehicle repair he had made after receiving a safety equipment repair order. The duty officer went outside to the parking spaces in front of the barrack with the man.
"Moments later, the duty officer called for assistance outside the barrack. Another trooper who had just left the barrack returned immediately to assist. At this time, it is believed both troopers fired their department-issued pistols."The duty officer was found lying along the edge of the parking lot near the entrance to Route 13. He had sustained injuries consistent with being struck and/or dragged by a vehicle.
"The man (Fisher) shot by state police was found inside a vehicle on Route 13 about 150 yards north of the barrack. The vehicle had struck the center median guardrail.
Due to the mystery surrounding the incident, the unanswered questions and the need for closure the mother of Fisher, the Reverend Mildred Fisher filed the wrongful death lawsuit so she could get to the "truth." She wants to know what led to the police involved shooting that ended her sons life.
During there initial investigation it appeared that Fisher was trying to avoid a search of his car and a search warrant after the incident turned up marijuana. A prior record indicated that Fisher had been arrested and convicted before for possession and distribution of marijuana.
Lawyers for the family believe the past is the past "and what occurred in the past is irrelevant, you should not get shot for a tag light. Fisher's mother commented that Fisher was on probation but was doing well, taking care of his family and being responsible.
The Maryland State Police do not comment on pending legal matters and a final report on the incident is yet to be completed.

Update on our CCR's Operation Secret Santa Easter family...we have been able to get to the bottom of the problem with the propane bill. When our single mother & children moved into their house (they rent), the propane bill remained in the name of the previous residents. She paid to have a delivery several months ago and they delivered with no problem. Meanwhile, there was apparently a past due balance on the account and the disconnect notices were being sent to the name on the account and forwarded to another address, so she never received them. When her propane ran out this time, she thought they were coming to fill it and instead they disconnected it. So, she called them and this is what she found out...$372.29 is the past due balance, then it is $150 for the reconnect fee and to have it switched to her name, and $349.39 for 100 gallons of propane, which all totals $871.68. So far we have $130.00, which leaves $741.68 still needed. However, this will not only get them some propane, it will also solve the problem of the bill not being in her name, pay the previous tenant's debt and get her caught up, and get her on the right track to not need help again. Please help this local (Crisfield) family, any amount donated will add up. All donations collected will be paid directly to the bill by me. Please send donations to me at 26268 Peach Street, Crisfield, MD 21817 or PayPal email@example.com ORcrisfieldcatrescue@hotmail.com (both are mine) - Please be sure to note that your donation is for our Easter family. Also, please share if you know anyone that may want to help! Thank you so much!!!
