MURDER OR OVERDOSE? Body of serial domestic violence offender found at the side of the road has detectives seeking tips from the public
NANJEMOY, MD. – A body along the roadway in Nanjemoy is still a bit of an oddity in spite of the several recovered deceased humans found in the area in recent years – a new stiff found is no exception. Rather makes one wonder how many have not yet been found.
Charles County Sheriff Troy Berry reports the discovery of Guy Kevin Hayes, 31, (DOB 01/20/1988) of 8935 Riverside Road, Nanjemoy, Md., without any signs of trauma – though his record with deadly weapons in past criminal convictions could be a tipoff to detectives to examine his pals, contacts, and associates for connections to his demise.
An autopsy has yet to be performed, thus once the Maryland Medical Examiner offers an opinion, clues and gossip will have to suffice, though the epidemic of opioid and heroin overdoses in the past few years has become the principal cause of death for people of the age of Hayes.
Police say that on December 21 at 7:45 a.m., officers responded to the 8900 block of Jacksonstown Road in Nanjemoy for the report of a male lying on the side of the road and found Hayes.
Anyone who may have had recent contact with Hayes is asked to call Detective R. Johnson at (301) 609-6453.
Hayes was charged by St. Mary’s Sheriff Deputy Blaine Gaskill on Oct. 30, 2015, with two counts of second-degree assault, resisting and interfering with an arrest and carrying a concealed deadly weapon.
In a plea deal with St. Mary’s States Attorney Richard Fritz on Dec. 11, 2015, Hayes entered a guilty plea in St. Mary’s Circuit Court to the charges of possession of a concealed deadly weapon and resisting arrest. THE DEAL: the assault charges were dropped, and Hayes was sentenced to three years in prison with all but one year suspended.
A court order issued by a Charles County Circuit Court Judge on July 30, 2015, in a domestic violence case resulted in a protective order against Hayes on Aug. 13, 2015.
Arrested by St. Mary’s Sheriff Detective David Corcoran for first- and second-degree assault in 2015, Hayes was a participant in yet another plea deal with St. Mary’s States Attorney Fritz, who would rather make a deal than have to put on a trial. On Sept. 24, 2015, Hayes pleaded guilty to second- degree assault and was sentenced to three years in prison with all but one year suspended and the sentence was supposed to start on Jan. 31, 2019 – which apparently resulted in an early release despite his violation of the terms of his probation, since his corpse was found on the side of the road.
In 2014 and 2015, Hayes racked up six different times he was named as the defendant in domestic violence cases in Charles County and on Dec. 6, 2013, Hayes entered a guilty plea to DWI in Charles County in a plea deal with Charles County States Attorney Tony Covington. THE DEAL: Hayes received a verdict of Probation Before Judgement with 60 days in jail – all of which was suspended as once again Covington shows he is toothless and feckless in dealing with impaired drivers. This deal for Hayes didn’t even result in one penny of a fine. Charles County Sheriff Patrol Officer Robert Herbert arrested Hayes for DWI, in this case, as he operated a 2005 Nissan on Port Tobacco Road on July 5, 2013.
