A body found early Monday in a wooded area of Columbia's Long Reach village has been identified as Oakland Mills resident Antonio Ayala, Howard County police said yesterday.

The 33-year-old man was identified by his fingerprints, police said.

A lawn maintenance worker spotted Ayala's body about 10:30 a.m. Monday behind the Sierra Woods apartment complex, police said.

The death has been classified as suspicious, but county police spokeswoman Sherry Llewellyn said there was no obvious cause of death.
