Police Ask Public’s Help to ID Homicide Victim Found in Great Seneca Stream Park
Detectives from the Major Crimes Division of the Montgomery County Police Department are asking the public to look at the personal effects found on the dead body which was discovered in a shallow grave in Great Seneca Valley Stream Park a little over two weeks ago.
Investigators said the body was found just of the Greenway Trail, approximately 200 yards from Watkins Mill Road/Germantown Road on Saturday, August 29. The human remains were found by individuals participating in a managed deer hunt in the park. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore ruled this death a homicide due to trauma to the upper torso of the victim.
Police are releasing photos of the victim’s clothing and personal effects in hopes that someone may recognize the items or have information about the items and the identity of the victim. Investigators have attempted to identify the victim and are now asking for the public’s assistance. The victim is described as a White male, possibly Hispanic, who is believed to be in his late teens to twenties. It is believed that the victim’s body has been in the shallow grave less than six months.
