"We've looked at landscaping, lighting, patrol strategies and anything that may effect the safety on campus," said Ernest Leatherbury, the UMES Police Chief.

State police believe the stabbing occurred during an altercation because St. Clair and a small group of people.  Police were able to recover the weapon but still would like to interview potential witnesses who were in the area as well as drivers in close proximity to the crime scene.  Chief Leatherbury said he, like everyone else on campus is ready to see this case closed.

"As a police officer, we like to see every crime solved.  So if there is frustration, it's in just as a law enforcement officer that we like to see every crime solved," said Leatherbury.

Investigators will be on campus this Homecoming Weekend at UMES searching for any new information or any other potential witnesses to the crime. 

Police investigators continue to need the help of persons both on and off campus who may have information about this crime.
