CAPE GAZEqTFE. Tuesday, August 21 - Thursday, August 23, 2007 5 Millsboro murder suspect arrested in Washington, D.C. By Eddie Phillipps Cape Gazette staff A Millsboro man accused of killing his fiancee was apprehend- ed by U.S. marshals Friday, Aug. 17, in Washington, D.C. Emmett Taylor III, 44, was wanted for the murder of bride-to- be Stephanie V. Mumford, just days before their wedding. Homicide detectives from the Delaware State Police traveled to Washington Friday to interview Taylor. Information from the interview was not released, as it is an ongoing investigation. U.S Marshal for the District of Delaware David W. Thomas said that after looking at Taylor's his- tory and interviews, authorities were informed that Taylor had contacts in Washington, D.C., and they contacted marshals there. Authorities set up surveillance and they saw Taylor's vehicle in the district's Northeast section, near Bladensburg, Md. Taylor was spotted entering 1905 M St. NE, where he was arrested inside the house at approximately 1:30 p.m. Friday. Taylor is being held in Washington pending extradi- tion to Delaware. A warrant was issued for Taylor's arrest Wednesday, Aug. 15, for the murder of the 44-year- old Mumford. He also has a war- rant for his arrest in Mississippi, where he was on probation for aggravated assault. AucqTION. State police identify body found on beach Delaware State Police identified the body that washed up on Conquest Beach, just south of Dewey Beach, June 19. Cpl. Wes Barnett, state police spokesman, said the victim was 62-year-old Robert Lawrence Michels, also known as Robert Lawrence Michaels. Although he was born in Minneapolis, Minn., he had no address on file. Barnett said Michels had a criminal history in New Hampshire, California and Idaho, and he was listed as a transient in his arrest records. Police identified him by fingerprint comparisons at the New Hampshire State Police, after copies of the postmortem prints were .sent to all U.S. states and territories. Investigators were able to match Michels' prints with prints on file with the San Jose Police Department in California and the California Department of Justice. State police contacted the Social Security Administration and learned Michels applied for services in California. Michels' body was found lying face down in the sand on Conquest Beach. He was unclothed, and there were no identification papers near his body. The state Medical Examiner's Office ruled Michels died from drowning. Lewes leaves GMB liability insurance at $2M Lewes Mayor and Council decided not to require city engineering firm George, Miles & Buhr to increase its professional liability cover- age for design of the City Hall expansion and renovation project. George, Miles & Buhr (GMB) engineer Charlie O'Donnell, at the mayor and council's Monday, Aug. 13 meeting, said professional liabil- ity for a project such as City Hall is typically set at $2 million, not the $3 million which was considered. O'Donnell said the insurance covers design errors attributable to GMB. He said the insurance protects GMB and the city. O'Donnell said the $2 million City Hall project would not take more than two -years to complete: The City of Lewes and the Lewes Board of Public Works administra- tive offices would share the expanded building. Construction could begin this fall.
