July 13, 1993|By Bill Talbott | Bill Talbott,Staff Writer

State police have asked the public a second time for information about the murder of William Charles Prodoehl, 34, of Westminster, whose body was found Feb. 18 near the Carroll-Frederick county border.

A video taped re-enactment of the crime, as police believe it to have happened, will be shown on Carroll County Cable TV Channel 3 this week, Det. Sgt. Donald Hoffman, criminal section supervisor at the Westminster barracks, said yesterday. No time has been set for the broadcast.

Sergeant Hoffman said police are seeking to "pick up the pace of the investigation" into the slaying of Mr. Prodoehl, whose body was discovered in the 4500 block of Baptist Road near Starners Dam.

State police put out a public call for information about the slaying six days after the body was found, but have no suspects, police said.

Mr. Prodoehl, a construction worker and father of two children, who lived in the 1100 block of Singer Drive, was found by his wife and a family friend lying on his back with a bullet wound in the back of his head.

He had gone fishing on Feb. 17, to a familiar area along the Monocacy River.

When he did not return, his wife, Gina Maria Catterson Prodoehl, and Roy Robertson, a friend who lived with the couple, went to look for him.

Investigators said they have executed search-and-seizure warrants, and interviewed neighbors and co-workers, but have not found a weapon.

Sergeant Hoffman asked that anyone who saw Mr. Prodoehl or is aware of his movements on Feb. 17 or 18 call the state police barracks, investigation division, at 799-0190.
