Body found under Weems Creek Bridge

ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Maryland Natural Resources police recovered a body from under Weems Creek Bridge in Annapolis Sunday.

Witnesses reported what appeared to be a head floating near the bridge around 11 a.m. Sunday.

Natural Resources Police pulled the body of an unidentified man out of the water about an hour later. Police described him as a white male,  5 foot ten, 180 lbs.,  wearing black and blue swimming trunks and goggles. 

The body was taken to the medical examiner’s office for autopsy.

NRP spokeswman Candy Thomson says the drawbridge has been in an upright position since July 4 for repairs to four hydraulic lifts. It is scheduled to remain upright until 8:30 Sunday night. Thomson says it is unclear whether the bridge closure has any connection to the found body.

Police are investigating.
