(SALISBURY, MD) – Maryland State Police homicide investigators are hoping to add to the leads they already have by seeking help from citizens who may have information about the murder last week of a Wicomico County man who was found shot to death in his car.

Elmer C. Duffy Jr., 54, of the 1100-block of Kiowa Avenue, Salisbury, Md., was found dead at about 6:30 p.m. on February 20, 2012. Duffy was in a white 1991 Oldsmobile convertible parked in the 700-block of Olivia Street in Salisbury, minutes after troopers had been dispatched there in response to a report of shots fired.

A $2,500 cash reward is being offered by Crime Solvers of the Eastern Shore for information regarding the person or persons responsible for this murder. Callers may remain anonymous. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Solvers at 410-548-1776, or the Maryland State Police Salisbury Barrack at 410-749-3101.

Maryland State Police Homicide Unit investigators have received some leads and information from the public, but are hoping others with information step forward to help police bring the person or persons responsible for Duffy’s death to justice. Investigators believe there are citizens in the Salisbury area who have important information that would be of great assistance to their investigation.

Viewing and funeral arrangements for Duffy have been announced. A viewing will be held on February 29, 2012, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Holloway Funeral Home, 501 Snow Hill Road, Salisbury, Md. His funeral will be held on March 1, 2012, at 1:00 p.m. at the St. Paul United Methodist Church, 405 Flower Street, Berlin, Md.
