Dead man's body found in Rock Creek Park
D. C. police were called to Rock Creek Park near the Parkway and Pennsylvania Avenue around 7:20 a.m. after Pepco crews working on an electrical fire discovered a dead man's body near the creek.
Officials were unable to offer much detail, but said it did not look like the fire and body were related. The man, said to be in his 30s, was found about 100 yards from the site of the fire, police said.
The fire was about 100 yards from where the body was discovered. The body was taken to the D.C. Medical Examiner’s office for an autopsy, although officials said there were no obvious signs of trauma on the body.
The fire was located under the bridge at Pennsylvania Ave. and 26th Streets NW. Pepco officials said no Pepco customers were affected as the smoldering cables were replaced.
