America's Most Wanted & CCSO Join Forces to Solve Murder

Show will air this Saturday, 03-SEP, at 9 p.m. on FOX

This Saturday, the Charles County Sheriff's Office and America's Most Wanted will make a plea to the public for information about an unsolved homicide that occurred early last Thanksgiving morning.

Christopher Mader was murdered Nov. 25 as he was driving his car from his job as a bartender at Bennigan's in Waldorf about 3 a.m. Mader was traveling west on Smallwood Drive, just outside of his neighborhood, Hampshire. Despite the detectives' aggressive investigative efforts, the case remains unsolved. America's Most Wanted will air a segment on the murder Sat. Sept. 3.

"Detectives receive tips occasionally, but not as frequently as they used to," said Charles County Sheriff Frederick E. Davis. "We hope airing Chris' information on America's Most Wanted will generate good information. We are doing everything we can to solve this case and we appreciate the assistance we are receiving from America's Most Wanted. Chris and his family deserve justice."

Detectives received several leads following the murder, but the leads have not produced a suspect. Police received a phone call in connection with the incident, however, after a brief conversation, the call was disconnected. The call-taker was unable to obtain the caller's information. The Sheriff's Office released part of the recording to the public and the recording remains on the Sheriff's Office's website, but detectives did not obtain any leads.

The Sheriff's Office also released a sketch of a person who detectives believe may have information about the murder. Although detectives did receive some tips, they were not able to develop a suspect from the information.

Charles County Crime Solvers is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information about this investigation that leads to an arrest or indictment. Mader's family is also offering a reward of $36,000.

The recording, the sketch, and information about the murder is on the Sheriff's Office's website at Anyone with information about this investigation is asked to contact Det. K. Moody at 301-609-6514 or Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS.
