MURDER of Herman “Dolly” Callahan

Case Number: 92 H 0464
Type of case: Homicide
Date entered: 07/21/2008


Narrative:  Early on Monday morning August 24, 1992, Herman “Dolly” Callahan was located in his home on Route 404 near Route 309 in Queen Anne, MD. A motorist passing by at about 7:15 AM noticed something suspicious, believed that he had fallen and reported it. Callahan was found just inside the doorway of the residence with a single shotgun wound and was pronounced dead at the scene. The fatal wound appeared to have been fired at close range, which leads investigators to believe that the killer was known by the victim. Callahan, aged 75, was the owner of two cattle farms and a landlord of more than dozen tenants.

Dolly was said to be a hard worker and could “turn a dollar” but also had his share of enemies. He was known to start his day about at 4 AM every day. Callahan’s 1985 GMC livestock truck taken from the residence and was located nearby at the National Guard Armory. Investigators still have no reason why it was moved there or by who.

The murder weapon has never been located. Investigators are looking to locate possible witnesses from that morning who may have seen someone at or leaving the residence, clues as to why the truck was taken and then left just a short distance away, location of the possible murder weapon or additional information.
