FROSTBURG, Md. (AP) — Emergency services recordings obtained by The Associated Press say that a man found dead in the western Maryland woods was naked.
Allegany County officials released the recordings Friday. In one transmission, a Maryland State Police helicopter crew member says he’s “got a visual on a subject, unclothed.”
The body of 24-year-old Alexander Stevens of Frostburg was found Wednesday on a logging road about 140 miles west of Baltimore. Homicide detectives are investigating the death.
The recordings also reveal that a 20-year-old woman who walked out of the woods that morning with hypothermia told emergency workers her companion had fallen off a cliff and was dead.
State police spokesman Greg Shipley says autopsy results are pending. He wouldn’t comment on why Stevens was unclothed or the nature of his wounds.
