Maryland State Police 1st Sgt. Russell Newell said that the victim was a 26-year-old from Prince George's County, but authorities would not release the name because detectives had not reached the victim's relatives. Until yesterday, cars had badly marred the body to the point that police could not immediately determine the victim's race, gender or cause of death.

Baltimore police released yesterday the names of three men killed in apparently unrelated slayings in recent days, but added two more killings last night to a growing city homicide toll in the new year. Detectives also were investigating another man's death as a homicide after he was found last week in woods in North Baltimore, reportedly bound with duct tape. The steady pace of violence that closed out last year with 275 homicides in Baltimore -- six more than in 2005 -- shows no sign of abating in 2007.

State police say three people found dead Tuesday in a single-vehicle crash along a southbound ramp from Interstate 83 onto I-695 in Baltimore County had likely been there since early Sunday morning. Police said the crash site wasn't discovered for two days because it was far from the roadway and hidden by trees and brush. When a driver reported seeing something that looked like a vehicle in the woods Tuesday, police responded and found pieces of the car and the bodies of the three men. The discovery prompted an investigation that closed ramps at southbound I-83 onto the outer loop of the Beltway for more than six hours, from late afternoon into the evening.
