PASADENA, Md. (AP) –Authorities say a search team has recovered a body after a man spotted a partially decomposed human head behind a shopping center in Pasadena.
Lt. Michael Brothers, a police spokesman, tells The Baltimore Sun that officers found the head after being called to a wooded area behind Jumpers Hole Road and Ritchie Highway.
He says the head might be that of a woman.
Anne Arundel County police told The Baltimore Sun a man spotted the skull Monday afternoon when he was walking into the woods behind the shopping center.
The remains were sent to the Chief Medical Examiner’s office for identification and determination of the cause and manner of death.
