November 18, 1993

The unidentified man whose body was found Tuesday afternoon by a farmer who was harvesting soybeans in rural South County was strangled, the state medical examiner's office said yesterday.

Dr. Dennis Chute, who performed the autopsy, would not comment further.

Police said the farmer, whom they would not identify, found the man's body about 3:25 p.m. Tuesday. The body was in woods 100 feet west of Upper Pindell Road, near Pindell Road, less than one mile from the Calvert County line.

Officer Terry Crowe, a county police spokesman, said police believe the man may have been killed elsewhere. Police would not comment on a cause of death yesterday, but confirmed they were investigating the death as a homicide.

Investigators said no identification was found on the body.

Sgt. Rick Tabor, head of the homicide unit, said only that the man was in his late 20s or early 30s and was wearing khaki pants, a black leather jacket and a blue or black shirt with a crisscross design on the front.

Police said the body may have been in the woods for at least two days.

Two neighbors interviewed yesterday, both of whom requested that their names not be published, said they heard a car with a broken muffler drive up and down Pindell Road between 9 p.m. and 3 a.m. Friday.
