Geologists find man's body in Gwynns Falls Park

Geologists working in Gwynns Falls Park in Southwest Baltimore found the decomposed body of a man yesterday.

Police said the geologists, members of the U.S. Geological Survey, were working near an embankment in a wooded area off the 700 block of Ellicott Driveway about 1:30 p.m. when they discovered the body of a black man, who appeared to have been dead for about a week.
