June 25, 2005

A man's decomposing body was found Friday afternoon near Broadfording Road, northwest of Hagerstown, the Washington County Sheriff's Department said.

Capt. Doug Mullendore said police could not tell the man's age or race. Detectives are scheduled to bring the body to the Maryland state medical examiner's office in Baltimore today.

Police are not revealing what the man was wearing until they work more to identify him and reach his family, Mullendore said.

He said police are treating the death as suspicious, but there was no immediate indication that someone else had killed him.

A resident smelled an unusual odor, looked over an embankment on Hopps Landing Road, saw the body and called police about 3:20 p.m., Mullendore said.

Hopps Landing Road is off Broadfording Road, west of Md. 63.
