Dublin man charged in death after body found near home

April 23, 2003

A 37-year-old man was arrested and charged with murder yesterday after a body wrapped in sheets and covered with leaves was found near his trailer home in the Harford County community of Dublin.

The body of Thurmond Brown Copin, in his 70s, was found with head injuries on the property where George William Scarborough lived in the 2900 block of Dublin Road, the county sheriff's office reported.

Authorities said Copin's girlfriend, who had been away for the Easter holiday, reported him missing Monday night. Investigators knew of no motive in the slaying, and are continuing to search the property for evidence, the sheriff's office said last night.
