Body found in SUV in Gaithersburg: Police
Major crimes detectives in Montgomery County are investigating the death of a man whose body was discovered Monday night in an SUV in the Gaithersburg area, authorities said.
Just before 10 p.m., officers were called to a parking lot in the 800 block of Clopper Road for the report of someone dead in a Ford Explorer parked there, authorities said.
