Harry R. Hughes, who lives in Denton. After talking for a while in the den of his home, Hughes suggested a tour of some of the county's historic sites.

DENTON -- Perched on a bluff overlooking the Choptank River, this town of fewer than 3,000 residents seems quintessential rural America. Children and old folks gather for afternoon concerts on the courthouse green. Farmers sell sweet corn from their pickups. Neighbors swap gossip at the corner lunch counter.On the surface, life appears as peaceful as a box turtle walking through a flower patch.But there's an undercurrent of unrest, a snake in the garden that has upset the notion that little towns have only little problems.

The state medical examiner's office has determined that a 71-year old Denton man whose body was found floating in the Choptank River Sunday was the victim of a homicide. An autopsy was conducted Monday. Police said that Louis R. Nichols, of the 300 block of South Fourth St., sustained multiple injuries. But the cause of Nichols' death has not been made public because police fear that the information might compromise their investigation. Nichols' body was found not far from the former Route 404 bridge near Denton around 11 a.m. Sunday.
