A University of Maryland, Eastern Shore student was stabbed to death this weekend during a fight as the campus celebrated homecoming — plunging another state school into grief after an apparent murder-suicide left two students dead in College Park less than a week ago.

Maryland State Police identified the UMES student as Edmond A. St. Clair, a 21-year-old junior biology major from Severn who graduated from Laurel High School in 2010. Friends, teachers and family members said he excelled in college, dreamed of becoming a doctor or surgeon and had a passion for producing reggae-style music.

Police say St. Clair was riding in a car about 9 p.m. Saturday with his brother and another man, who were visiting for homecoming weekend, through the Princess Anne campus when they came across a group of several people walking in the street and a fight broke out. St. Clair was stabbed with a weapon police have not yet identified.

  • My condolences. But, I’m a little confused by this article. How could he be stabbed if he was riding in a car and the fight broke out in the street? Logic would say that he exited the car…..Why?
