Suspect In Handy Murder Has Been Arrested

I have been out of town for the past few days on a family matter and am so glad to see that this possible murderer has been arrested! Hopefully the Handy family will be working towards some closure. Great job police department!

POCOMOKE CITY — A suspect in a Pocomoke murder case was arrested without trouble outside the Walmart store Friday night, police said. They arrested Skylor Dupree Harmon, 19, who days ago was charged with murdering Reginald Handy Jr., 22, in May.

A state police fugitive apprehension team, assisted by a special team of Worcester sheriff's deputies, caught Harmon Friday at about 6 p.m., police said, and he is being held without bond.

At a news conference last week, prosecutors and police said they believe Harmon killed Handy. A different man, Alexander Crippen, 36, was the first person charged with murder in Handy's death, but those murder charges were dropped before Crippen's trial; he was later convicted of attempting to kill a different man, based on testimony about what he did at the same scene where Handy died.

Harmon is currently the sole suspect in Handy's death, and police had said he was at large in southern Worcester or Somerset counties, and possibly armed and dangerous.

Suspect Still Wanted In Pocomoke Murder

POCOMOKE CITY, Md. - A Virginia man was gunned down in Pocomoke City and now police are looking for the alleged shooter.

Police say gunfire rang out around 10 PM Wednesday night on the corner of Laurel and Fifth Streets. Investigators say Reginald Handy Junior later died at the hospital.

One resident who spoke with us off camera says the shooting happened near her home and has left her restless, "you got groups of kids walking around shooting each other, I'm not used to that, I used to live in Baltimore for a couple years, I heard and saw things, but nothing ever this close."

No word yet on a possible motive. Police say they have a first degree murder warrant out for a suspect but, say they will not release his name until he is in custody.
