The weapon used to kill a University of Maryland Eastern Shore student in February has a "unique orange and black camouflage handle" that investigators hope will "prompt the memory of someone who may have seen the knife before," Maryland State Police said Wednesday. Investigators released an image of the weapon, which has a three-and-a-half-inch serrated silver blade, for the first time at a news conference on the university campus Wednesday, and urged the public to contact them if they recognize it. They hope tips about the knife will help them identify three suspects they believe were involved in the killing of Edmond St. Clair, a 21-year-old junior biology major from Severn who graduated from Laurel High School in 2010.
