July 15, 1991

Montgomery County police have charged a 37-year-old Rockville man in the death of a homeless man whose body was found in the rear of a parking lot in Rockville.

The body was found 11:50 a.m. yesterday in the rear of the 800 block of Rockville Pike, police said.

Police charged Pharez Hamilton Pfeiffer, of no fixed address.

Police said Pfeiffer was held at the county Detention Center withoutbail pending a bail review hearing today in District Court.

It appeared the 40-year-old victim, whose identity withheld pending notification of relatives, had been beaten on the head, police said.

The victim was found behind a carpet and lighting center near an old van and a construction trailer where he often stayed, police said.

Police believe the men had argued before the victim's death.
