Body found near cemetery

May 30, 2008|By RICHARD IRWIN

An autopsy is to be performed today on the body of a man found last night in a wooded area near Woodlawn Cemetery in Baltimore County, police said.

Shortly after 6 p.m., a passer-by was walking in the first block of Thornhurst Court in the Hilltop Estates community when he saw the body in woods a short distance from the cemetery and called police.

A police spokesman said homicide detectives were called to the scene. After a preliminary investigation, the body was taken to the state medical examiner's office in Baltimore, where an autopsy is expected to determine the cause of death and possibly the man's identity through fingerprints.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Woodlawn precinct at 410-887-1340.
