The 38-year-old manager of a Hyattsville fast-food restaurant was found slain in his office yesterday, according to Prince George's County police.
Police found Thomas Scott McQuade dead at 5 a.m. when they went to check a burglar alarm at a Hardee's restaurant in the 6500 block of New Hampshire Avenue, said police spokesman Cpl. James H. Shaffer. The officers found the restaurant's front door open and Mr. McQuade lying on the floor in a back office, Corporal Shaffer said.
Mr. McQuade, who lived in the 4800 block of Lauren Court in Ellicott City, had been stabbed several times in the upper torso.
Though no money appeared to have been taken, Corporal Shaffer said investigators are checking into robbery as a motive in the crime. Police said they have no suspects.
