Leonardtown, Maryland - On May 9th at 3:00 AM, Corporal J. Somerville was conducting a premise check at the Exxon when a citizen informed him of an overturned vehicle on Newtowne Neck Road in the area of Rosebank Road.
Deputies searched the area and located a Ford F-150 overturned resting in a ditch on its roof. The driver, and sole occupant, identified as Barry Dale Whittington, Jr., age 32, of Leonardtown, was pronounced dead on the scene.
Members of the Sheriff's Office Collision Reconstruction Unit responded to the scene and assumed the investigation. The preliminary investigation indicated the truck was traveling northbound on Newtowne Neck Road. For unknown reasons, the truck left the roadway as it approached Rosebank Road. The truck then traveled along a ditch before striking a culvert and overturning. Speed is believed to be a factor in the crash.
Anyone with information regarding this crash is asked to call Deputy C. Beyer at 301.475.4040. The investigation is ongoing and additional information will be released as it is developed.

Leonardtown, Maryland - On April 24, 2015, educators, from the Maryland Network Against Domestic Violence in collaboration with MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital (MSMH) and the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office, presented Lethality Assessment Program (LAP) training. The LAP is a multi-pronged intervention that consists of a standardized, evidence-based lethality assessment questionnaire and accompanying referral protocol used to help first responders make a differential response - tailored to the unique circumstances of high-danger victims. Hospital professionals, Sheriff’s Office detectives, and Walden Behavioral Health staff, all members of the St. Mary’s County Family Violence Coordinating Council (SMCFVCC), learned to identify victims of domestic violence, especially those who are at the highest risk of being seriously injured or killed, and provide them with immediate domestic violence support services. Members also learned how to accurately assess and document physical injury as a result of a domestic violence incident for potential use as evidence.
