Man's body found in Leesburg park
Leesburg police discovered the body of a Leesburg man in Ball's Bluff Park in Leesburg around 1 a.m. Wednesday, according to the Leesburg Police Department.
Authorities said that the individual, whose identity has not yet been released, appears to have committed suicide.
The body was discovered after police came upon an abandoned vehicle in the Potomac Crossing neighborhood of Leesburg during a routine patrol, said Leesburg Police spokesman Chris Jones. Police found the body "deep within the woods, close to the river area," Jones said.
On Monday, a woman's body was found in a shed near the park. On Tuesday, she was identified as Cornelia Marie Arnold, 52, of the 400 block of Ball's Bluff Road NE in Leesburg.
But at this time there appears to be no indication of a connection between the man's body and the investigation of Arnold's death, police said.
Detectives with the Leesburg Police Department continue to investigate the matter in conjunction with the Medical Examiner's Office to determine the exact cause of death, police said.
