MSP: Human Remains Found in Dorchester County Identified

Posted:
 EAST NEW MARKET, Md. - Maryland State Police homicide investigators have identified the human remains found over the weekend in a rural area of Dorchester County.

Investigators say the body has been identified as 40-year-old Radames Guzman, of Magnolia, Delaware. They say he was positively identified through fingerprints obtained by Maryland State Police crime scene technicians.

Police say the remains were found in a wooded area on Red Hill Road on Sunday, about one-quarter mile west of Linkwood Road. They say the remains were found in what appeared to be a shallow grave by a person walking in the area. Investigators say the person came upon the remains in the woods not far from a soybean field.

After finding the remains, investigators say they began contacting police departments throughout the region to identify reports of missing persons from the area. After the initial report, Dorchester County deputies say they were contacted by a relative of a person who had been reported missing from his home in Magnolia, Delaware. Investigators say they learned the man, later identified as Guzman, had been reported missing to Delaware State Police on August 5, 2014. Investigators say family members had not had contact with Guzman since August 2, 2014.
 
Police say the autopsy at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore is ongoing. Investigators say the cause and manner of death have not been ruled on by the medical examiner's office at this time, but they say additional forensic tests and examinations are being conducted. Although an official ruling has not been made, investigators say they continue to consider this a suspicious death.

State Police investigators continue to interview family members, friends and associates of Guzman and say they are attempting to determine what happened to him after he was last seen on August 2nd. Anyone with information about Guzman is urged to contact the Maryland State Police Homicide Unit at the Easton Barrack at 410-822-3101. Police say callers may remain anonymous if they wish. A reward of up to $2,000 is being offered for information about this death by the Crimes Solvers of the Lower Eastern Shore. Crime Solvers may be contacted at 410-548-1776.

The Maryland State Police Homicide Unit continues to lead this investigation and is being assisted by Dorchester County Sheriff's Office detectives and investigators from the State Police Criminal Enforcement Division. As the investigation has continued, assistance is also being provided by the Delaware State Police.
