ABC2: Police Develop ‘Person of Interest’ in Last Year’s Davidsonville Homicide
It’s been one year since Nicole Burgess was found murdered inside her Davidsonville home. Police determined that the death was homicide from multiple stab wounds. Burgess’ dog was also killed. For many months, police have not been able to put together the pieces, but a break may have come in the case, according to an ABC2 news story.
Burgess, 37, lived in the 3300 block of Royal Glen Court in Davidsonville. This is off Mt. Airy Road.
According to the ABC2 story, police have a “person of interest.” Anne Arundel County Police do not consider this a cold case, since they are still actively following up on leads.
ABC2 reporter Katrina Bush wrote:
“That means there is evidence right now that points towards a particular person as being highly suspicious in regards to this murder. That doesn’t close the door, that doesn’t make it a slam dunk case but what we do, as far as the prosecution goes, is we want to have a lock tight case because we don’t want to only want to arrest somebody, we want to take them to court. We want to prosecute them and we want to put them in jail where they belong,” Lt. TJ Smith said.
“Right now detectives believe this person obviously knew Nicole, they believe this was a targeted incident where they specifically went there for a purpose,” Lt. Smith told ABC2.
“This is a pretty upscale neighborhood in Davidsonville. Again, as part of our investigation we look to see if there are any trends of burglaries and there wasn’t anything, which helped lead us to the fact that somebody targeted her and again, since then, we’ve been trying to put together and piece together evidence pointing it toward somebody,” Lt. Smith added.
Anybody with information is urged to call Metro Crime stoppers or Anne Arundel County detectives at 410-222-3566.
