Sterling Emmanuel Settle was 14 years old when he was murdered in Brandywine, Maryland, more than 25 years ago, and the person responsible for his death has yet to be brought to justice.
At around 4 p.m. on Oct. 13, 1995, officers with the Charles County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to a logging road off Covington Road after receiving a 911 call about a deceased person.
Upon arrival, police officials encountered Sterling’s body.
It is surmised that the state medical examiner’s office ruled Sterling’s death a homicide, as he had been shot multiple times in his upper body area.
Before his body was found, The Bay Net reported that Sterling, who was a ninth-grade student at Oxon Hill High School, hadn’t been seen in four days.
The last sighting of the teen was purportedly on the afternoon of Oct. 9, 1995, near his home in Oxon Hill, which is located in Prince George’s County.
According to the Washington Post, Sterling may have been killed on the day he went missing.
