Crum Road Murder Suspect Arrested

Baltimore Man Successfully Detained without Incident

At approximately 6 a.m. today, Frederick County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) deputies along with representatives from the U.S. Marshals Capital Area Regional Task Force successfully executed a search and seizure warrant in Baltimore and arrested Keon Wilson-Hawkins, age 20, of Baltimore, for the Jan. 10, 2024, murder of Brice Wendell Boots, age 65, from Pikesville, Maryland.

“This very disturbing murder has been a non-stop priority for our agency since it occurred in early January. This crime is another example of individuals from outside of this county committing violent crimes locally and somehow believing their crimes won’t be solved,” said FCSO Sheriff Chuck Jenkins. “Our detectives have gone above and beyond to pull the facts and evidence together and build the case for indictment and prosecution, and successfully and without incident arrested Wilson-Hawkins this morning.”

At approximately 1:32 p.m., on Jan. 10, 2024, Frederick County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) deputies responded to the 8200 block of Crum Road, Walkersville, Maryland, for the report of a suspicious vehicle in a field. The caller reported that the vehicle had its flashers on and had been there since 7 a.m.

Upon responding, deputies found Boots inside the vehicle and immediately established a crime scene at the location. Deputies identified Boots and made all appropriate next of kin notifications.

Based on evidence located on the scene, the FCSO investigated Boots death as a homicide.

Deputies closed Crum Road at Liberty Road to Crum Road at Stauffer Road to the public for two days as this investigation at the crime scene continued.

This incident is still an ongoing investigation and if anyone has information, contact the FCSO at 301-600-2071 and reference case # 24-003713.
