SALISBURY, Md.– Maryland State Police are continuing to ask the public's help in finding those responsible for the murder of a Salisbury man 10 days ago.

Police said that in the morning hours of Sunday, May 17, officers responded to an emergency call on the 1000 block of Bryn Mawr Avenue in Salisbury where they found 20-year-old James L. H. Skinner lying in the doorway of his home.

During the ensuing investigation, police learned Skinner had been living at the home for the past two months with the homeowner and her three teenage children. Police said that Skinner and the homeowner were inside of the home when multiple people entered the home at 3:30 in the morning.

Evidence indicated that one or more of the suspects was armed. Investigators said that after a confrontation, Skinner was shot. The homeowner was uninjured and called police after finding the victim.

Police said that while a motive has not been determined, an autopsy showed that the cause of death was a gunshot and the manner of death was a homicide.

Authorities said MSP Homicide Unit investigators, assisted by investigators from the Salisbury Police Department, Wicomico County Sheriff's Office, and State Police Criminal Enforcement Division, continue to follow up on leads, examine forensic evidence, and conduct interviews. Investigators have interviewed and re-interviewed dozens of people so far in the investigation, police said. 

Police said investigators believe there are people who are close to or associate with the suspects who are aware of their involvement in this crime. Anyone with information about this murder is asked to call Crime Solvers of the Lower Eastern Shore immediately at (410) 548-1776. Crime Solvers is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information that will lead to an indictment of the person or persons responsible for this crime.
