Hunters Find Body in Germantown Park
Hunters discovered a body in the parklands on the unofficial border of Germantown near Watkins Mill High School, over the weekend, according to police.
Montgomery County Police say that two bow hunters participating in the Montgomery County Parks Department’s Managed Deer Hunting Program came upon the body in Great Seneca Stream Valley Park on Saturday night.
Capt. Paul Starks, a spokesman for Montgomery County Police said the hunters found the adult male body at about 10:40 pm on August 29, but detectives decided that it was too dark to conduct a thorough investigation, and returned to scene at 7:00 am Sunday, August 30.
The body was removed to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore. No other information about the body has been released. Starks said the MCPD are investigating it as a suspicious death. Police have not yet determined if there was any foul play, and an investigation is ongoing.
