Killing of UMES student last year still unsolved, police offer reward

Maryland State Police reiterated their call Wednesday for witnesses to come forward in the unsolved slaying of a University of Maryland, Eastern Shore student a year ago.

Edmond St. Clair, a 21-year-old junior biology major from Severn, was fatally stabbed on the UMES campus Feb. 16 last year. St. Clair, his brother and a friend were driving through campus to get food when they encountered several people, one of whom stabbed St. Clair when he stepped out of the car, police and his brother have said.

State police said their list of suspects had expanded well beyond the campus, as there were hundreds of people there from the Baltimore and Washington areas for homecoming week.

There is still a $10,000 reward for information on St. Clair's murder, state police said Wednesday. They are looking for several potential witnesses who were in the area at the time, and believe there may have been witnesses in a light-colored vehicle, possibly a Ford Taurus or Mercury Sable, and another gold-colored car.

Police also asked for people to come forward with any knowledge about the murder weapon, a 3 1/2-inch Remington Sportsman's Series folding knife with burnt orange and black camouflage handles.

Those with information are encouraged to contact Maryland State Police at 410-651-3101, or Crime Solvers at 410-548-1776.
