Charles Turgot Jones was 19 years old when he was murdered in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, more than four decades ago, and the person responsible for his death has yet to be brought to justice.
At around 11:30 p.m. on Nov. 7, 1978, Jones left his girlfriend’s house on Magothy Bridge Road in Pasadena and was expected to arrive home the next morning, according to the Baltimore Sun.
When he failed to make it to his destination on Nov. 8, his parents contacted the Baltimore City Police Department and reported him missing.
Two days later, on Nov. 10, police officials received a call about an abandoned vehicle, a 1971 red Dodge Colt, in a wooded area on Maryland Route 648 near Mountain Road in Glen Burnie.
The vehicle belonged to Jones.
When they arrived on the scene, they searched the car and noticed blood stains on one of the seats and splattered blood on the door. And about 500 yards away, they found Jones’ body buried in a shallow grave.
There have been no arrests, and Jones’ case has gone cold.
