Construction workers in Jessup found a body lying in woods in the 8900 block of Good Harvest Court Thursday morning, according to Howard County police.

The decomposing body of a man had no identification when found behind a house about 10:22 a.m. Police are working to find out the man's identity and whether his death was the result of foul play. Anyone with information may call 410-313-STOP.

The body, which was too decomposed to identify the man's race, was taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore for an autopsy.
