Nearly nine months after a 20-year-old Maryland man went missing in Prince George’s County, police have charged his friend with murder in the case, according to reports.

Damion Myers was last seen April 14 at the Silver Diner in Waldorf just before midnight. His father and grandfather made a painful plea and prayed for answers in the search to find him.

Prince George’s County announced Tuesday they arrested Damion’s friend, 23-year-old Parrish Goode last week. He confessed to shooting Myers and disposing of his body, police said.

In the arrest warrant, investigators said the men left the restaurant and went back to their Fort Washington neighborhood when “an altercation ensued between Goode and Myers. Parrish Goode shot Damion Myers inside his vehicle and disposed of his remains.”

Goode’s abandoned Nissan Maxima was found in the 2300 block of Rosecroft Boulevard in Fort Washington on April 16. According to court documents, detectives found a handgun, a bloody sweatshirt and two fired bullets in the car. They believe Goode tried to throw away evidence but abandoned the car when it became disabled.

Court documents do not mention a motive for the shooting. Myers’ body has not been found after months of searching.

He said the last few months have been agony for their family. While they are grateful for some answers and to the homicide detectives who have been working on the case, they are still far from closure.

Goode was charged with first and second-degree murder, assault and several gun charges on Dec. 21. He appeared in court Friday and was ordered held without bond. He’s due in court again Jan. 26.

Anyone with information that can help the investigation is asked to contact police.
