Man found in frozen pond identified

By Ruben Castaneda

Anne Arundel County police on Monday identified a man whose body was found in an Edgewater pond Sunday as Justin P. Raddie, 28.

Raddie lived in the 900 block of Echo Bay Court, police said.
His body was discovered Sunday afternoon when a woman who was walking her dog around the pond near Riverton Place and Stepneys Lane noticed holes in the ice which she had not seen the previous day, officials said.

She called authorities, and Raddie's body was found in the pond. An autopsy is pending, police said.

Is the woman a person of interest?

No, she found the holes in the ice, thought they were suspicious and called the police. It's a good thing she did or else his body may not have been found until the spring thaw.

RIP Justin, you'll be missed.

In Cleveland......Little kid on walk bridge over community pond discovered Volkswagen apparently submerged for eighteen years with two teenagers in it. Apparently slid in in the wee hours in icy mud while they were euphoric from something or other.

Couldn't have been frozen very well if someone fell through. Must have been drinking.

It thawed that night. This wasn't a drinking issue. It was midnight and he was getting off from work. What does what he was doing have to do with it? He was a great person and will be missed.
