Tracey's Landing, MD (Arundel.News & AAFA)- A man charged with murdering his mother inside their Tracey's Landing home, in the 6300 block of Genoa Road, is in custody in Northern Virginia awaiting extradition back to Maryland. 23 year old Andrew Weylin Beavers, is accused of killing his mother, 58 year old cyber security expert, Juanita Koilpillai. According to Anne Arundel County Police, Koilpillai's body was discovered outside of her home on July 25, 2021 when officers responded to search her property following a call from her concerned boyfriend. He hadn't been able to reach Koilpillai, and her car was also missing from the residence. Koilpillai and her son reportedly lived together at the home. An initial release from police, described a gruesome crime scene with the victim's blood discovered inside the residence.
The following day on 7/26, police in Leesburg Virginia, located Koilpillai's vehicle and Beaver who had been developed as a person of interest in the case. A noticeably recent wound on the suspect's hand led investigators to suspect foul play. When asked about the injury, Beaver refused to explain how the injury occurred.
Police say Koilpillai suffered injuries consistent with sharp force trauma, but haven't identified the exact manner in which she died. The most recent update from Anne Arundel County Police this weekend, says the Chief Medical Examiner determined that her death was a homicide. Investigators also reportedly found the "edged" weapon used to kill Koilpillai during the execution of several search warrants. That object allegedly held the DNA of both the suspect and his mother.
