Skeleton found in Calvert woods
A juvenile running through the woods behind the Fox Run Shopping Plaza in Prince Frederick found a gruesome discovery Thursday around 4:45 p.m. -- a partially clothed, mummified skeleton, said Lt. Steve Jones of the Calvert County Sheriff's Office.
"There was no sign of foul play," said Jones, commander of the Criminal Investigations Bureau, which responded to the scene. "It appears that he was potentially living at this location."
The skeletal remains of what police think is a male were about 50 yards from Prince Frederick Boulevard surrounded by items and clothing, including a wallet with identification. Police are withholding the deceased's identity pending a positive identification and notification of family.
The body was transported to Baltimore's Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for examination.
Anyone with information regarding the case are asked to contact Det. Nick DeFelice at 410-535-1600, ext. 2669.
