Though it would be unusual to have a will that doesn't appoint any Personal Representative (often called an Executor in other tates), the law allows interested persons to petition for appointment. Maryland law has an order of priority for people to serve in the role of Personal Representative but if there is no one named and no living relatives a non-relative can certainly petition for this role.
