Maryland State Police reiterated their call Wednesday for witnesses to come forward in the unsolved slaying of a University of Maryland, Eastern Shore student a year ago. Edmond St. Clair, a 21-year-old junior biology major from Severn, was fatally stabbed on the UMES campus Feb. 16 last year. St. Clair, his brother and a friend were driving through campus to get food when they encountered several people, one of whom stabbed St. Clair when he stepped out of the car, police and his brother have said.

On Saturday, Jan. 25, Special Olympics Maryland, in consultation with the Maryland State Police, the Maryland Park Service and Natural Resources Police, canceled the MSP Polar Bear Plunge due to a combination of extreme conditions at Sandy Point State Park that were unprecedented in the 17-year history of the event. I want to thank the thousands of plungers for the overwhelming support in the face of disappointment. I understand the implications of canceling an event of this magnitude that people have planned months in advance to attend.

Law enforcement agencies across Maryland have launched a joint investigation to find the source of a deadly variant of heroin that has claimed dozens of lives in recent months and sent outreach workers scrambling to warn addicts. Authorities say the powerful mixture of heroin and the synthetic opiate fentanyl has also turned up in New England, New York and Pennsylvania. In Maryland, they say, they have been caught off guard by the scale of the problem. For months, health workers, drug users and police have caught glimpses of the cocktail and the damage it has caused.

A 31-year-old Rockville man was arrested Tuesday night and taken to a hospital for evaluation after threatening to kill employees at the Montgomery Mall in Bethesda, police said. According to Maryland State Police, employees at a luggage store at the mall said George Hong Sik Chin was complaining about prices and became aggressive, saying he was going to kill them. State troopers found Chin, who they said was wearing camouflage and "babbling incoherently," in another area of the mall, and he told officers he had not taken his prescribed medications.

The Polar Bear Plunge, which was canceled this past weekend because of safety concerns amid extreme conditions, has been rescheduled for March 8, organizers announced Tuesday. Winds as high as 35 mph and 3- to 4-foot waves that left snow and ice on the beach at Sandy Point State Park - where thousands romp into the freezing cold waters of the Chesapeake Bay each year - caused the event to be put on hold Saturday. "Keeping people safe is our first concern," said Jason Schriml, spokesman for Special Olympics Maryland, for which this year's event has already raised $1.6 million.

Curious to know exactly how it feels to jump into near-freezing water? Ask Josh Bronson - he's done it as a Polar Bear Plunge participant for the past two years and he's prepping for a third plunge this weekend. "It can feel like anything from taking ice and rubbing it all over your body [to] being stabbed repeatedly all over your body," said Bronson, 34, who lives in Westminster. The event benefits Special Olympics Maryland and features the majority of its plunges on Saturday at Sandy Point State Park in Annapolis (for more information, go to plungemd.com)

A road rage chase that ended in Pennsylvania with a fatal shooting this month began in Maryland, authorities said. Witnesses on Jan. 4 reported seeing a suspect pursue the victim, 28-year-old Timothy Davison of Poland, Maine, along Interstate 81 between the Interstate 70 exit in Maryland and Pennsylvania Route 19, Pennsylvania State police said. During the chase, Davison called police twice and informed them that he was being shot at. The victim's vehicle crossed a median and got stuck in snow and soft ground in Antrim Township in Franklin County at around 2 a.m. Police said the shooter pulled up next to Davison, walked to the driver's side of his vehicle and began firing multiple gunshots.

More than 200 guns were sold to people legally barred from owning them as a surge in firearms sales last year overwhelmed Maryland's background check system, according to state police. One gun was sold to a man later accused of using it in a carjacking in Prince George's County, police acknowledged in response to queries from The Baltimore Sun. The sales occurred last year as part of a flurry before Maryland's tough new gun law - enacted following the school massacre in Newtown, Conn.

Much has been made recently about proposed pay increases for some Maryland's politicians, but even the highest-earning elected officials don't come close to the top of the state-employee income scale. Gov. Martin O'Malley's 2012 income of $150,000 was just a fraction of more than $2 million that Terps football coach Randy Edsall and men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon each pulled in, according to an updated state salary database made available by Maryland officials under a Public Information Act request.
