Identity released for body found in Woodstock

Howard County police have released the name of an unemployed man whose body was found Saturday in the parking lot of the Woodstock Post Office.

Kevin Paul Holland, 27, of the 2500 block of Edgecombe Circle in Baltimore City, was shot several times in the head, county police said.

Robbery apparently was not a motive since some valuables Mr. Holland was carrying were not taken by the killer, said Sgt. L. P. D'Antuono, of the county police department's homicide unit. He declined to describe the objects, however.

Sergeant D'Antuono said it is believed Mr. Holland was not a victim of random violence. But police have identified no motives or suspects in the homicide, the county's seventh this year.

Police would not say whether Mr. Holland was shot on the post office grounds or killed somewhere else and his body taken there.

Autopsy results have not been released.

A delivery person found Mr. Holland's body about 5:35 a.m. Saturday on the grounds of the post office, police said.

Mr. Holland was last seen Wednesday at a relative's homeSergeant D'Antuono said.

But because Mr. Holland, also known as Kevin Evans, was distant from his family, police were unable to gather much information from relatives.
