Police say an unidentified body found in a bloody cardboard box along Interstate 70 earlier this week was that of a man in a work uniform who appears to have been in his 30s.
A Maryland State Police spokeswoman said Thursday that the state medical examiner’s office has ruled the death a homicide, but she says the cause of death is undetermined.
Detective Sgt. Wayne Wachsmuth of the state police told The Frederick News-Post Wednesday that the man was wearing some kind of utility uniform.
The newspaper also reports that the Metropolitan Police Department of Washington is looking into the case.
State highway maintenance workers found the box on a wooded embankment near the Braddock Heights exit just west of Frederick on Tuesday morning.
