Dorchester County Man Charged in Cold Case Murder

Posted: Updated:

VIENNA, Md.- A Dorchester County man has been charged in the cold case murder of a correctional officer.

John Ingersoll, Jr., 46, of East New Market, is accused in the June 2001 death of 31-year-old Gregory Collins.

Maryland State Police said Collins was shot and killed while traveling to his home after working his shift at the Eastern Correctional Institution in Princess Anne.

Collins was reported missing when he failed to return home. He had reportedly finished his shift around midnight and was driving a gray Toyota pickup truck when the incident occurred, authorities said.

A state trooper noticed a wooded area along Indiantown Road in Vienna, where it appeared a vehicle had left the roadway. The trooper checked the area further and found Collins unresponsive inside his truck, authorities said.

Dorchester County State's Attorney William H. Jones told WBOC he could not provide additional details on how police determined Ingersoll as a suspect.
