Prince George’s County police said on Wednesday they want to talk to a family member in connection with the killing of a Fort Washington woman and her son who were found dead in their home.

Officials described Quindell Mercer, 34, as a “person of interest” in their investigation into the Aug. 4 killings of Frank Lamar Harris, 20, and his mother, Patricia Harris, 56.

Mr. Mercer is described by police as “a family member of both victims.” His whereabouts are unknown, said police, adding that Mercer is currently wanted on unrelated outstanding assault warrants in North Carolina.

Police said Frank Harris called police to his home in the 11800 block of Hickory Drive around 4:30 a.m. after he said he came home from work to find his wife and son suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. There was no sign of forced entry into the home.

Police questioned the elder Mr. Harris and cleared him as a suspect in the case.
