The U.S. Park Police hope someone will come forward to help investigators identify the man whose body was found earlier this month in a wooded area in Temple Hills, authorities said.

The man, who police believe died from natural causes, was found Feb. 6 in a wooded area south of the Suitland Parkway and east of Branch Avenue, authorities said.

Park Police described him as a black man over the age of 45 who had a light complexion. He was wearing four rings on his left hand and multiple necklaces around his neck, authorities said.

Photographs of some of his accessories are available on the Park Police web site.

He might have been homeless and walked with a limp, authorities said.

Those with information are asked to contact Detective Freeman of the Park Police's Criminal Investigations Branch at (202) 610-8760.

I think this person might have been the guy that use to hang around the Naylor Road Metro Station. I have not seen him for a while. I'm hoping it's not him because he was a very nice man - always asking us to pray for him. I will continue to pray for him.
