Man hit by train identified

A man who was found dead nine days ago on railroad tracks in Montgomery County was identified Monday after police released a sketch to the media, The Post's Marty Weil reports.

The man, who police said might have been jogging, was found on the CSX tracks in Kensington, clad in what appeared to be athletic apparel. He was identified as Joshua M. Brodsky, 44, of Silver Spring.

They said a conductor on a westbound CSX train spotted him between the rails of the eastbound tracks about 1:20 p.m. on July 25. The last eastbound train had gone by more than 3 1/2 hours earlier. Police said they believed he had been struck by a passing train.
