Anne Arundel County police today were searching for a silver 1989 Dodge Daytona in connection with the stabbing-death of a its owner, 19-year-old Churchton man whose body was found in a closet at his home on Rodgers Road.

Police said the body of Marcus William Maddox, of the 1000 block of Rodgers Road, was found shortly before 6:30 p.m. yesterday by his brother after several attempts to reach him by phone failed.
