On Friday, December 13, 2013 at approximately 10:30 a.m., officers from the Anne Arundel County Police Western District responded to the 8300 block of Frostwood Dr. in Laurel, MD for a report of a check well being.
Upon arrival, officers met with the landlord to gain access into the home. They discovered a deceased male victim who had obvious signs of trauma to his upper body. Detectives from the Criminal Investigations Division took over the scene.
Although positive identification of the victim has not been made, detectives believe the victim is the adult male who lived in the home where the victim was found. As part of the investigation, detectives will be interviewing friends, associates, and family members associated with the home. The other occupants of the home have been accounted for and are safe.
The deceased was transported to the Office of the Medical Examiner for positive identification and an autopsy. The cause of death has yet to be determined and the victim’s identify is pending. This incident is being investigated as a homicide.
This incident does not appear to be random and the Police Department does not believe there is a public safety concern in the community.
There is no further information available at this time. We will release additional information as it becomes available.
This is the third murder in the Russett Green community in the past year.
