PRINCESS ANNE, Md.- Authorities say the reward offered for information leading to the arrest of the person or persons responsible for the murder of a University of Maryland Eastern Shore student last month has been increased and now totals $10,000. 

Maryland State Police homicide investigators said they are continuing their investigation to identify who is responsible for the stabbing death of 21-year-old Edmond A. St. Clair, who was murdered at the university on the evening of Saturday, Feb. 16. Police said St. Clair was a passenger in a car on the Princess Anne campus at about 9 p.m., when they encountered several persons walking in the street. According to investigators, some type of altercation ensued and St. Clair was stabbed to death. Police said they continue to search for three suspects who are described only as black males in their late teens or early 20s. 

Police said UMES has increased its reward for information to $8,000. An additional reward of $2,000 is being offered by the Crime Solvers program.
