A body was discovered in a load of steel today as workers unloaded railroad cars in an eastern Baltimore County terminal, county police said.
The body was found about 11 a.m. at the Coastal Steel Co., 6911 Quad Ave., police said.
The train that carried the steel was from Texas, said county police spokesman E. Jay Miller.
Mr. Miller said he did not have any immediate details about the gender of the dead person, whether the body was clothed or if there were signs of foul play.
He said county police will contact authorities in Texas to see if there are any missing persons near where the train passed.
