The details: The Anne Arundel Police really screwed this one up, They let the only person who witnessed Clarence Eddie Woods III death go without extensive questioning or testing her for gunshot residue.
Also the fact that she even delayed calling 911 and somehow failed to arouse suspicion. It’s great that Anne Arundel County Police finally reopened the case, but it’s what they should have done in the first place.
