Maryland Police Arrest Man in Connection with 2001 Murder Case of Correctional Officer

Posted: Updated:

CAMBRIDGE, Md. - Maryland State Police homicide investigators have arrested a Dorchester County man in connection with a 2001 cold case involving the murder of a correctional officer.

John Michael Ingersoll, Jr., 46, of East New Market was arrested in the 9500 block of Black Dog Alley in Easton Friday morning, according to a release from Dorchester County States Attorney William H. Jones. Ingersoll is charged with first and second degree murder among other charges. 

According to the release, a grand jury indicted Ingersoll this morning, charging him for the 2001 murder of Gregory Guy Collins, 31, of Vienna.

Collins was a correctional officer at Eastern Correctional Institution in Somerset County. He was shot and killed while traveling back home after working an early morning shift in June 2001. Collins was discovered unresponsive inside his truck in a wooded area along Indiantown Road after he was reported missing. 

Jones says the indictment is an allegation and that Ingersoll is presumed innocent until proven guilty in court. Jones could not provide more details on how police determined Ingersoll's connection to Collins' death.

Ingersoll is being held in the Dorchester County Detention Center pending trial.

Several law enforcement assisted in the investigation and arrest, including the Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services, the Eastern Correctional Institution in Princess Anne, the Office of the State's Attorney for Dorchester County, the Federal Bureau of Investigation Baltimore Division, the Talbot County Task Force, Maryland State Police Easton Barrack, the Talbot County Sheriff's Office, Maryland State Apprehension Team and the Criminal Enforcement Division Upper Shore.
