Body found Sunday not a homicide victim

By Matt Zapotosky

The man whose body was found Sunday in Temple Hills near the Branch Avenue Metro station appears to have died from natural causes, a U.S. Park Police spokesman said Wednesday.

Sgt. David Schlosser, the spokesman, said investigators were still working to identify the man

He could not be more specific about the cause of death.

The body was found south of the Suitland Parkway along the tree line on National Park Service property, authorities had said.

Apparently near the Naylor Road Metro station, not the Branch Avenue station (3 miles away), as I commented on an earlier Post report.

Makes me wonder what else the Post gets wrong and if every story needs to be fact checked.
