Man Found Dead In Salisbury City Park Drowned

SALISBURY, Md. (AP) — Authorities say drowning has been ruled the cause of death of a 25-year-old Salisbury man found dead in the east branch of the Wicomico River in Salisbury City Park.

Police said Wednesday that it could be weeks before the state medical examiner’s office gets toxicology results on Rodney Stevenson Jr.

Stevenson’s body was found Monday morning near a spillway close to a foot bridge in the park. He had left his home about 12 blocks away on foot less than an hour earlier.

City police say the autopsy also determined there was no injury to Stevenson’s head, as previously reported by the on-scene forensic investigator.
