Unidentified body of man found in rural Pindell area Police launch homicide probe


The body of an unidentified man believed to have been murdered was found yesterday afternoon by a farmer in the rural Pindell area of southern Anne Arundel County, authorities reported.

The fully clothed, decomposing body was found shortly after 3 p.m. in a wooded area off Upper Pindell Road, near the borders with both Calvert and Prince George's coun

ties, according to Officer Terry M. Crowe, a county police spokesman.

No identification was found at the site.

Police were awaiting a report from the state medical examiner's office on a full description of the man -- including his height, weight, race and approximate age, as well as the precise cause of death.

"We are investigating this as a homicide. There were signs of foul play," Officer Crowe said, adding that it appeared the body had been dumped there.
