Hikers Discover Body in Shallow Grave Near Game Preserve Road
Detectives from the Montgomery County Police Department – Major Crimes Division are investigating the discovery of human remains found in the 11500 block of Game Preserve Road as a suspicious death.
According to police, on Saturday, Nov. 12 at approximately 4:27 pm, officers from the MCPD 6th District responded to a wooded area in the 11500 block of Game Preserve Road for the report of human remains that had been found by hikers. In the woods, responding officers located a shallow grave that contained the human remains, which detectives have reason to believe is a male. An autopsy will be completed by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore.
The wooded area where the body was found on Saturday is part of the Great Seneca Creek Park, which creates a natural border between Germantown and Gaithersburg. Game Preserve Road runs through that portion of the woodlands. There are some homes along Game Preserve Road which runs from Clopper Road northeast to Frederick Road and beyond, but it is essentially a wooded area.
