The ongoing search for Pedro Manuel Argote, the suspect in the murder of Washington County Circuit Court Judge Andrew “Drew” F. Wilkinson, took a significant turn with the discovery of the silver 2009 Mercedes GL450.
The vehicle, believed to have been used by Argote, was located in a wooded area off Bottom Road in Williamsport, Maryland. Despite this breakthrough, Argote remains at large, and authorities continue to urge the public to exercise caution as he is considered armed and dangerous.
Judge Wilkinson’s tragic death shook the community, coming shortly after he had issued a ruling in Argote’s divorce case, stipulating no contact between Argote and his family. Although Argote was absent during the court hearing, suspicions quickly fell on him following the shooting incident.
As investigations into this harrowing case continue, further updates are anticipated at an upcoming news conference, where authorities are expected to provide additional information.
As the search for the suspect intensifies, law enforcement agencies have emphasized the significance of public cooperation and vigilance in assisting with the apprehension of Argote. The discovery of the Mercedes SUV marks a critical development in the pursuit of justice for Judge Wilkinson, underscoring the collaborative efforts of law enforcement and the community in ensuring the safety and well-being of all residents in the area.
