Early in the morning on Aug. 24, 1992, Herman Callahan was found shot just inside his home on Route 404 in Queen Anne's County.
 
Herman, known to everyone as "Dolly," was shot in the back, at close range, as he entered his home.  Police believe the killer used a 12 or 16 Gauge shotgun.
 
Callahan owned two cattle farms and was a landlord to more than a dozen tenants. He also owned a  liquor store and had racehorses.
