August 01, 2008

A body found in a sleeping bag along a rural Harford County road has been identified as that of an Aberdeen woman who had been shot, Maryland State Police said yesterday.

The body of Jodie S. Davis, 41, was identified through fingerprints, police said. Her body was found Wednesday afternoon in the 400 block of Bush Chapel Road after a passing motorist alerted police after seeing a suspicious bag, police said. The road is near Interstate 95.

An autopsy yesterday determined that Davis' death was a homicide. The body was not by the road Tuesday night, but it may have been dumped as early at 6 a.m. Wednesday.

Anyone with information about Davis or anyone who had seen anything suspicious is asked to call state police at 410-879-2101. Calls may be kept confidential, police said.
