Maryland State Police say the summer break at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore will not slow down their investigation of the stabbing death of 21-year-old Edmond St. Clair during homecoming weekend.

His killing remains unsolved with some worried that the break will impede the momentum of the probe.

Some UMES students say they worried that his death and the search for those responsible could be forgotten.

It’s been three months after his murder.

Freshman Christopher Adams told WBOC he was worried it will be left unresolved with everyone gone from campus.

Campus official tried to reassure students with Public Safety Chief Kenneth Collins saying that he believes the campus lull could give a boost to the investigation.
