Man found dead at homeless encampment in Montgomery

Montgomery County detectives are investigating the suspicious death of a man whose body was found Monday near an encampment of homeless men off the Capital beltway, officials said.

Detectives hadn't determined the victim's name as of late afternoon Monday. He appeared to have been homeless, according to authorities.

Police were called shortly before 2 p.m. to a wooded area near the New Hampshire Avenue exit of the beltway. The body was discovered by a homeless man who stayed at the encampment, police said.

A police spokeswoman said an injury to the victim's body doesn't appear to be an accident.

These homeless illegals encamped in the woods are a health and safety threat to Montgomery County residents. Remove the encampments and deport the illegals.

Why are these encampments allowed? I don't know what neighborhood would want camps of homeless men getting drunk and high behind their homes

What do you suggest doing to these Hoovervilles of homeless? Torch them like they did in Anacostia on July 28, 1932?
