BRANDYWINE, MD. (NBC 4 Jackie Benson) — Prince George’s County Police are investigating an apparent homicide in Brandywine Monday evening.
Police received a call about a body around 6:40 p.m. at Cedarville and Bevard roads. There, they found a man suffering from trauma near a car. He was pronounced dead on scene.
“This is a heavily wooded, relatively rural area so it’s not heavily populated,” Cpl. Nate Lewis with Prince George’s County Police said, admitting whomever called 911 may have something to do with the investigation.
The man’s identity and cause of death have not yet been released.
The area where the body was found belongs to Aggregate Industries, that uses the land as a sand and gravel pit.
The 911 caller may have been a hunter.
