PRINCESS ANNE, Md. (AP) -- Maryland State Police are hoping that a knife apparently used in the fatal stabbing of a student at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore will help lead to the arrest of a suspect.

Authorities on Wednesday released information and a photograph of the distinctly colored knife, hoping to generate information from someone who may have seen it. The Remington Sportsman's Series folding knife has a reddish-orange handle that includes a black camouflage print.

Authorities say evidence on the knife connects it to the Feb. 16 stabbing of 21-year-old Edmond St. Clair.

Police say St. Clair, his brother and another man were driving through the campus on homecoming weekend when they became involved in an altercation with a group of people walking in the street.
