Police are investigating after a man’s body was found inside a car at an Annapolis area park and ride.
Maryland State Police were called to the park and ride lot off Harry S. Truman Parkway in Annapolis Wednesday afternoon by a passerby who reported seeing a body inside a Saturn Vue at the far corner of the lot, police said.
Investigators noticed trauma to the man’s body, and while it appears the wound may have been self-inflicted, police aren’t ruling anything out.
A wallet found on the body matched the identity of the person the car is registered to.
Police believe the body may be that of a 37-year-old Eastern Shore man reported missing July 4 by family he was visiting in Southern Maryland. Troopers have been in contact with the missing man’s family but are waiting for positive identification before releasing a name.
The body was taken to the office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore for an autopsy to help determine identity and cause and manner of death.
