    Where is Douglas Court in Great Mills? I found a Skipjack Court in Bay Ridge but there is no Douglas Court or Terrace Court nearby.

      It is Taras Court it is the next street down. Sadly this happened on our street. We are a quiet neighborhood of professionals and families. This is so sad we did not know to look out for him as she never let any of us that live on the street to look out for him. We are always questioning people who wonder into our neighborhood and always keep an eye out for each other. So sad!!!

    This is very tragic and I am sorry for the innocents whose lives have been forever changed but I can’t believe the guy left her to fend for herself. You can’t tell me that there wasn’t a phone around to call for help. Now a woman is dead and you have to wonder if he could have prevented it instead of running away.

    If your in the middle of visiting a woman, your naked and vulnerable, it’s the witching hour, and some dude walks up on you, you would probably run too. Where would you keep your cellphone while naked and happy? You gotta put it down sometimes! That poor girl probably ran too, her ex caught her, and she died. Poor girl, she was just getting on with life.

      The guy must of felt she was safe prior to taking off. That is all I can think of. Roxy you may be right – the ex must of gotten a hold of her. We will never know.

    My God I grew up with Kim. I know her brother and family well. I’m so sorry for the loss and my heart is heavy. I wish that I could be there to give my condolences in person but I am not able to at this time. My prayers go out to the kids who lost both of their parents to this tragic set of events. Now they have to deal with the heavy heart for the rest of their lives. God bless you kids. I love you all Richards family, and you are in my prayers….. I am truly sorry….

    I am so sorry to hear about Kim. My children grew up wth her and all attended the same church. Kim was a delightful young girl as I am sure she was as a young woman. I only hope that good ole ST’Marys County can get a conviction and not play around and be more professional than they were in the murder of my father and his murderes were let go and no one was ever convicted, I look at the 2nd degree murder charge and I shake my head. lesser charge so tey won have to work so hard.I just believe it should be more of a first degree, no doubt thisbumb was stalking her in some way. I pray that the St’Mary’s county law enforcementbys can stay out of a donut shop and do her rigt. My heart and prayers go out to her children parents and brother. I love you guys
