Body of man missing in boating accident is found

Maryland Natural Resources Police recovered the body yesterday of a Pasadena man who drowned in a boating accident in February.

The body of Roger B. Madden, 42, of Pasadena was found after a boater reported seeing it about 1 1/2 miles north of the Bay Bridge in the bay. The body was taken to the state medical examiner's office in Baltimore for an autopsy.

Natural Resources Police had been conducting daily surface searches for Madden's body since he went missing after a boating accident Feb. 29. Madden and Edwin J. Mosmiller, Jr., 52, also of Pasadena, were traveling in a 40-foot-long, high-performance race boat when the vessel flipped and broke apart. Mosmiller's body was found shortly after the accident. Speed is believed to have been a factor in the accident.

Police seek help identifying man found dead near mall

Anne Arundel County police are asking for the public's help in identifying human remains found last week near Marley Station Mall.

Police have determined they are the remains of a white male, possibly in his late 40s, with gray hair, a receding hairline and a gray beard. He was about 5 feet, 9 inches tall, and weighed about 140 pounds. He also had a tattoo on his right upper arm with a profile of a woman's face with a dragon on the back of the woman's head.

The man's body was found off Ritchie Highway, north of Marley Station Road. Investigators do not believe foul play was a factor in his death and say he may have been living in the woods.
