On October 29, 2016 at approximately 2030hrs CCSO units responded to Flag Harbor in reference to a missing person that had possible fallen into the Harbor, St. Leonard MD. Cpl. Smith arrived at the Flag Harbor pier and located the body of a deceased female under the pier. Det. Jernigan responded to the scene to assume the investigation.
The victim, identified as Pamela Fell date of birth 9/15/71, lived on a large boat parked in the first boat slip on the left on the pier. A friend of Ms. Fell, had been attempting to contact the victim since Thursday afternoon with negative results. The friend contacted the harbormaster at Flag Harbor and asked him to check on Ms. Fell. The harbormaster went to Ms. Fell’s boat and observed a purse on the floor of the rear boat deck, the lights were on inside the cabin, the television was on, and only the screen door was closed. He attempted to call out for Ms. Fell and received no response. The harbormaster told the friend she should probably come to the boat to check further as he did not want to enter the boat. The friend responded to the boat and made the same observations as the harbormaster. Ms. Fell’s cellular telephone was retrieved from the purse on the rear deck of the boat. The friend then responded to the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office to report Ms. Fell missing. The harbormaster checked the surveillance camera footage from the camera on the pier where Ms. Fell’s boat is located. The camera showed Ms. Fell falling off of the dock and no further activity.
A Forensic Investigator was called to the scene and the body of the deceased was transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore where an autopsy will be performed.
The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact Det. Jernigan of the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office at 410-535-2800 ext.-2772 or email – firstname.lastname@example.org.
