TRACYS LANDING, Md. — A 911 call led to the discovery of a woman's body Sunday afternoon in Tracys Landing.

The boyfriend of Juanita Naomi Koilpilai initially called police to the 6300 block of Genoa Road to report her missing.

Arriving Anne Arundel County officers searched and found Koilpilai, 58, dead outside.

Police also noticed that Koilpilai's car had been stolen. It later turned up in Leesburg, Virginia.

Officials say blood and other evidence found in and outside the home indicate she was the victim of a targeted murder.

An autopsy determined Koilpilai died of multiple sharp force injuries in ruling it a homicide.

On July 30, the DNA of Koilpilai and a potential suspect was discovered on a weapon.

The DNA was traced back to Andrew Weylin Beavers, the victim's 23-year-old son.

Police believe he murdered his mother, then hid her body outside before taking the car and fleeing to Leesburg, Virginia.

Beavers was arrested there the next day in the 39000 block of Thomas Mill Road, on charges of first and second degree murder. On August 3, he was extradited to Maryland where he is being held without bail.

It's unclear if police ever found a motive.
