Port Deposit Man, 29, Charged with Rape and Murder of 10-Yr-Old Cecil County Girl

From Maryland State Police:

Investigators from the Maryland State Police Homicide Unit arrested the suspect today, responsible for the murder of a ten year old Cecil County girl.

The accused is identified as Richard Madden, 29, of the 100 block of Waibel Road in Port Deposit. Madden was arrested for the murder of Kami Ring in Cecil County.

Madden is charged with first and second degree murder, first degree assault and first degree rape. He is currently being processed at the North East Barrack. He will be transported to the District Court Commissioner for an initial appearance.

After consultation with the Cecil County State’s Attorney, Madden was arrested today at 5:30 p.m. without incident. He was being held at the Cecil County Detention Center for violating his probation stemming from drug charges.

The body of Kami Ring, 10, of Charlestown, Maryland was found in a field across the street from the home she was visiting on Waibel Road. Madden was one of three residents living at the home.

Crime scene analysts, working closely with homicide investigators, gathered evidence from the field, in which Kami was found, and from the Waibel Road residence, where she was believed to be staying.

Biological evidence linked Madden to the murder of Kami. Autopsy results reveal the cause of death as blunt force trauma and asphyxia.

Investigators have determined there is no biological connection between Madden and Ring. The grandparents, who also reside at the Waibel Road residence and are not biologically related to Ring, and are the parents of Madden.

A motive for the murder remains unclear at this time. The investigation continues.

      Sorry, Your glorious democratic Governor made it a priority issue to abolish the death penalty in Maryland. You will now be paying for him to live a life of luxury in the MD penal system. Where he will get free food, a cell phone and plenty of sex.

    I don’t know why folks keep saying kill him, they should cover the walls of his cell with pictures of this sweet girl so he could be reminded every day and then leave him in the general population of the prison. His kind is the bottom rung of prison hierarchy, they will show him the error of his ways every day for years.

        First, this is a Cecil County case and he will never grace the glorious “R” dorm of the Harford Hilton. Second, if he were to get prosecuted in Harford County, he would be held in the “R” dorm with the rest of the baby touchers. In the “R” dorm, you get special treatment for being a molester, don’t want to violate those rights you know. If you are housed in the “R” dorm because of medical or low risk aspect of your charges, you aren’t allowed to harass or do anything offensive to the POS because the Correctional Officers at the jail will either throw you in isolation or the block if you offend them. Leave it to Harford County to “pamper” these sick miscreants. If he is found guilty, may he never see daylight or enjoy his life again. I particularly despise Child Molesters as I feel that their crime is indecent to the max and the victim impact is such that it may never be overcome, especially in this situation, where the victim lost her young life. In DOC, his life will be fitting to his crime, believe it. This is the type of crime that is despised by other inmates and DOC knows how to “let the chips fall where they may”. My sympathies go out to the family that has been bestowed this tragedy and the young girl who will be missed…….

          After doing some quick research, it seems that the Harford County Detention Center hold some sentenced, but mostly pre-trial inmates. Soul Crusher is it possible that similar offence inmates are lumped together to protect them from being victimized by “DOC Minded” people such as yourself? Soul Crusher, not specifically this case……but suppose the person is pretrial and found innocent. Do they deserve to be victimized by you “DOC” Minded Inmates?

          Not making any connections to the POS and his case, just asking. Prayers to the family of Cami

            Obviously, you didn’t read what I said. All you have to do is offend them. I was threatened with segregation, because I cut a picture out of the newspaper of a child and gave it to a baby toucher while saying, “Here, dream about this one tonight, sicko.” I suppose you didn’t read where I said,”If he is found guilty, may he never see daylight or enjoy his life again.” Once again another ignorant fool, that can not interpret the English Language or only reads what they want to see.

            Oh I forgot, The State’s Attorney Office in Harford County loves child molesters! They are frequently offered lighter sentences to inform on other inmates in jail by Joseph Cassilly’s wonderful assistants, that feel sorry for those poor guys that just can’t keep themselves from raping children. What a great policy! Can you say BO PEEP! Joe knows all about Bo Peep! Who’s family members ran that establishment?!? I think the citizens of Harford County need a new State’s Attorney that realizes that baby touchers need jail and the Institutional BENEFITS that are provided inside, HAHA. And that’s the bottom line, cuz the SOUL CRUSHER says so…..

      Wont see the death penalty because of pathetic bleeding heart fools like owe malley and miller and bleeding heart libtard judges. Fools like owe malley and miller aid and abet this shit. Anyone who voted for these two is without question a traitor an idiot and a fool.

      With the death penalty this scum could be dispatched in a clean and efficient manner. A society that lets this scum live has no right to call itself civilized.

    According to the Md judiciary search


    This POS has been in and out of court for the last 10+ years.

    He should be sent to the most horrific of a life one could ever imagine in the penile system along with every judge that has let him go over the years and every public defender that bargained a deal for him.

    This dirt bag should not have been walking the streets and I can only hope that little girl haunts everyone that enabled him to remain free for the rest of their lives.

      Amen JR, every judge and public defender that helped this miscreant walk free time after time should have their names published for everyone to dish onto them the contempt and disgust they deserve… they are nearly as much to blame for this little girl’s death as this POS that did the deed. If they’d done their jobs instead of longing for the back nine this little girl would be alive today. And as for O’Malley, why don’t you snuggle on up to this POS and give him a big French kiss since he’s just your kind of guy you pink panty wearing girly governor… There are billions of people on this Earth and you can either live as a peaceful law abiding productive member of society or screw you.

        Regardless of whether the death penalty is on or off the table… this is exactly the type of vile criminal our girly governor and his ilk want to protect. It soon won’t matter if he killed one or a hundred in whatever way he could imagine… he has a protector in O’Malley and his wussy little friends. They must think Marylanders won’t mind feeding and clothing this waste of human flesh for the next 40 or 50 years while he files lawsuits about the food, the decor of his cell or what shows he can watch… after all, lawsuits keep Marty’s pals in business.

    The death penalty is going away. Please pay attention to what is happening to the politics in this state.
    Bill H
    By the time he goes to actual trial the death penalty will be gone. There will be no retroactive enforcement of it. Especially in this state.

    Those of you who continue to support the status quo one party system in this state, shame on you. You are throwing away your rights at an every increasing rate.

    This guy is a walking, breathing example of why we need the death penalty. There is no rehabbing a monster like this. He just needs to be put down. Have the trial, find him guilty, and I will provide the ammunition to the state free of charge. Shoot, I will even dispose of the body too for free. Waste of oxygen.

      Ok, as I said in my previous message! Per the Cecil Whig, It was quoted that Rollins III would be checking in to see how the death penalty of MD would play into this case! I was not politically correct! Sorry I was just stating a quote! My point is this guy should have just stood up and admitted he did this for all the damn evidence that was so freakin obvious! I am not the type of person to wish ill will towards someone, however being so damn close to this (I mean right around the damn corner) I hope the most biggest burly badass MFer gets him cornered in prison & gives this piece of shit what he deserves! I as a tax payer do not feel I need to take care of his ass at all! Like someone else said hanging in Port Deposit & we all get a chance to take a hit at this jerk until he is gone forever!

Before you open your mouth-Read the papers across the river & get your shit right!
      Rollins III is desperately looking into seek the Death Penalty! That is not supposed to go in effect until October! Apparently there is a “very gray area” between this case & what O’F****Tard signed! so yes, there is a possibility this could happen & I hope they find a window where they can impose the Death Penalty! Yes, it would cost taxpayers, how ever it would also cost us to keep the SOB alive & feed his ass in prison; so I would rather pay the money & fry the bastard then pay for his room & board for the rest of his life. BTW-They are most likely gonna push for trial before October! so SALT!!!!!! you don’t know everything!
