1 charged with murder in death of missing Maryland man

August 5, 2019

GLEN BURNIE, Md. (AP) — A man has been charged with offenses including first- and second-degree murder in the death of a missing Maryland man whose body was found in an abandoned car last month.

News outlets report 24-year-old Inari Ramiar Molina was charged Saturday in the death of 56-year-old Brian Gary Gifford. Molina was already in custody on unrelated charges.

Anne Arundel County police say Gifford’s body was found in Glen Burnie late last month, about 10 days after he was killed. Gifford was last seen on July 16. He was reported missing about a week later.

Police say witness testimony and DNA and digital evidence tied Molina to the crime, which police have said was a random act of violence.
