Missing man found dead in Stafford County

WASHINGTON – A 24-year-old Stafford County man has been found dead in a wooded area near Rocky Way Drive in north Stafford.

The sheriff’s office says Devon During had been missing since Nov. 18, when he asked to leave the car he was in and walk to a friend’s house.

During’s family began searching when he didn’t come home. The sheriff’s department rescue team found the body Sunday afternoon.

The sheriff’s department says During’s death does not appear to involve foul play, but they don’t know how he died. An autopsy is pending.
