Baltimore Co. Police Still Trying To Identify Body Found More Than A Year Ago

MIDDLE RIVER, Md. (WJZ) — Baltimore County police remain confused over an unidentified body found more than a year ago.

The man was found in the waters near Middle River and, as Tim Williams reports, new technology could help sort out who he is.

It has taken Baltimore County police more than a year to create an image of the body they found, and they still don’t know the man’s identity.

“We’re not sure what happened to him and we do not have any idea who he is. We want to know who he is. He’s someone’s family and every human being deserves the dignity of being buried with a name,” said Elise Armacost, Baltimore County Public Safety.

The image is from a skull reconstruction. The man was found in the waters of Back River on Sept. 8, 2011. The location is just under the bridge of I-695. When officers found the body, it was badly decomposed with no signs of foul play. A witness told police it was not there earlier that day.

Since then, no one has come forward to report him missing.

Since the body was found more than a year ago, police have used every method they know to identify it, including DNA testing. Still, they’ve had no luck.

“At this point, we’re expanding our search to other states. We’re asking that people share the photo. We’re hoping that somewhere, someone will see this picture and be able to tell us that they may have some clue as to who this person was,” Armacost said.

He’s been identified as a white male between 40 and 60 years old.

If you can help identify the man, please contact Baltimore County Police at 410-307-2020.
