Unidentified man found dead in Gwynns Falls


The body of an unidentified male in his late teens was found yesterday in several feet of water in the Gwynns Falls in Southwest Baltimore. Police have ruled the death questionable pending an autopsy.

Detective Lynette Nevins of the homicide unit said two boys walking on the CSX Railroad bridge off the 1200 block of Bernard Drive near Carroll Park spotted the body about 6: 50 p.m. and told railroad police, who notified city police.

Nevins said the victim was a white male wearing gray sweat pants cut off at the knees. A pair of tennis shoes, thought to be the victim's, were found on the bank, she said.

Nevins said it appeared that the victim had stepped from shallow water into a deep pool and gone under. The body showed no obvious signs of injury, she said.
