Annapolis Homicide Victim Expected To Be Funeralized in Chester, Laid To Rest in Stevensville

Plans have been made to lay the victim of a recent Annapolis homicide to rest.  

Erica Jeanette Bonora will be buried in a Stevensville cemetary following a funeral service in Chester Maryland on June 29, 2021, according to an online obituary. Bonora, 38, had reportedly been working at a Bowie area pre-school prior to her tragic death. 

Annapolis Police officials have not provided any information regarding the investigation in the days since Bonora was found fatally wounded inside her apartment on Spa Road.

On June 19th at 2:48 p.m., officers responded to an apartment in the 1000 block of Spa Road for a welfare check.  Upon arrival, officers located Bonora inside the residence with signs of trauma to her upper body.  She was pronounced dead on the scene.  

Officers learned that the victim's vehicle, a 2011 Nissan SUV, was missing. Hours later officers located the vehicle occupied in the area of Spa Road and Forest Drive. Officers attempted to stop the vehicle and the occupant fled from police. Officers pursued the vehicle until the occupant crashed into a tractor trailer in Prince George's County while trying to evade the police.  The occupant was transported to an area hospital and is considered a person of interest.
Detectives are investigating this incident which does not appear to be a random act. This is an active and fluid investigation. Anyone with information about this incident should contact detectives at 410-260-3439.
