PRINCESS ANNE, Md.- It has been nearly three months now since the murder of a University of Maryland Eastern Shore student. According to police, 21-year-old Edmond St. Clair was stabbed to death on homecoming weekend, right on campus. His murder remains unsolved. Some worry momentum may be lost with summer break, but officials say they will not let that happen.
On campus, St. Clair's murder is still on the minds of many. Some students say they do not want his death, or the search for those responsible, to be forgotten.
"Before the crime just slips away from everybody, I think we should figure out at least something for the family," said junior Ebenezer Kassa. "The longer it goes on, the criminals could possibly be seniors that are graduating."
"It's kind of going to be kind of left unsolved, because, you know, everyone's gone, so like who knows," added freshman Christopher Adams. "I definitely think there should be some justice served to whoever committed that crime."
Maryland State Police assure the investigation is ongoing, and won't take a break or be hindered over the summer months.
Campus officials say they are not worried either. In fact, interim Public Safety Chief, Kenneth Collins, thinks the campus lull might provide a boost for investigators.
"State police are focusing off-campus during this particular time," Collins noted. "And with the students leaving, we're actually hoping that it will prompt a witness to come forward, since they're not going to be here on campus."
Police and students agree: they are eager for answers, and justice for a life taken too soon.
Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact police. There is a $10,000 reward being offered for any information leading to an arrest and conviction in St. Clair's murder.
