Homicide detectives investigating body found near Pr. George's courthouse

Prince George's County homicide detectives are investigating the death of a man whose body was found near the county courthouse late Thursday night, authorities said.

The man, who police said appeared to be in his 40s, was found about 11:40 p.m. Thursday lying in the road in the 5400 block of Water Street, said Upper Marlboro Chief Michael Gonnella.

The man, who had no identification, was declared dead at the scene, police said.

He had suffered "upper body trauma," according to police.

Police found the body after receiving a call saying a man was down in the road near the county courthouse, the chief said.

No one wants to live in PG anymore. Sure some say Virginia is racist, probably, but I would rather deal with a tinge of racism than have my own people kill me.

Before you guys make inaccurate comments this happened in Upper Marlboro the upper class side of PG county....I live in Upper Marlboro for the last 10 years and believe it or not it's very safe.

I actually work in Upper co-workers and I were discussing what could have happened to the victim. What if someone was trying to send a message to someone inside the courthouse...i.e, attorneys, judges, witnesses, jurors, etc. It is very possible and if that proves to be the case...very scary!
