Son suspected of fatally stabbing his mother in Cecil County

A 42-year-old man is now in custody after Maryland State Police allege he killed his mother.
 
Troopers tracked down Clarence McCall at a hotel two miles north of the trailer park.
 
He is now in police custody at an area hospital and will face charges of murder, assault and theft in the death of his 64-year-old mother, Jane Kyle.
 
The sound of a convoy of emergency vehicles shattered the quiet of a Saturday afternoon in an Elkton trailer park after a 911 call alerted police that someone may have been murdered in a home on Pinder Avenue.
 
"I opened up the front door and I just saw a whole bunch of cops, like 10 of them maybe, two ambulances, two paramedics just blocking the road, and we were trying to figure out where it was coming from," said Debra Hill, one of the victim's neighbors.
 
Troopers discovered the body of  Kyle in a bathroom.
 
An autopsy would determine she had died from multiple stab wounds to the upper torso.
 
"At this point, crime scene investigators feel that this was not a random incident," said Elena Russo of the Maryland State Police. "The victim may have had a relationship with the suspect involved."
 
While investigators have not discussed what evidence they may have discovered inside the home, it's what they did not find that has struck home with the victim's neighbors.
 
After Kyle lost her husband to cancer several months ago, McCall moved in with her, but he was nowhere to be found until earlier Monday.
 
"It's kind of funny how he disappeared, and wouldn't you think that you would come back and make sure if you would have known you heard that your mother passed away?" said Lisa Perez, who lives next door, prior to McCall's capture.
 
Also missing from the driveway was the victim's ford f-150 pickup truck and speculation was rampant there that if police find McCall, they may find the vehicle as well.
 
"He was out here like two weeks ago drinking with his mom and stuff and that was the last time I seen him and her truck's disappeared."
