By the time the badly-damaged body of George Thomas McAleer was found near Amtrak train tracks in Rosedale, he'd likely been dead for more than eight hours. McAleer, 26, of the 1100 block of Quantril Way in the Armistead Gardens neighborhood of Baltimore, was struck by Amtrak Train 181 in Rosedale around 9 a.m. on March 4, Amtrak officials confirmed Tuesday.
