Police release lifelike sketch of likely murder victim found in Anne Arundel

WASHINGTON — The Maryland State Police have released a lifelike sketch of a man found dead in Anne Arundel County and are asking for help identifying him.

For months, investigators have been unable to determine who he is and are now asking the public to take a look.

State police said it was a warm Friday evening in late September when a driver pulled off onto the shoulder of the Interstate 695 Inner Loop ramp to southbound Maryland Route 10 and glanced down the embankment to see what appeared to be a body.

State police say the Asian man found down the slope in the center of the interchange is in his late 20s or early 30s and had trauma to his head, but they still don’t know who he is.

The case is being investigated as a homicide, and investigators said nothing has been ruled.

However, the composite sketch created by Baltimore County and state police investigators looks almost like a photo, and they are hoping someone will recognize the victim who was about 5 feet 2 inches tall.

The man was found clothed but no identification was found near the body. Anyone with information is asked to call at 410-996-7881 and can remain anonymous.
