CHERRY HILL — Detectives are investigating an apparent suicide after a body was found Thursday off a road north of Elkton, according to Maryland State Police.
MSP troopers and detectives assigned to the North East Barrack went to the scene on Molitor Road near Avalon Avenue, off Singerly Road (Route 213), at approximately 2 p.m. after a member of the public made the discovery and contacted authorities.
In a grassy patch a short distance off Molitor Road, yellow police tape cordoned off the area in which investigators worked Thursday afternoon. The scene, just northeast of Route 213 in a wooded area, attracted the attention of passing motorists.
Because of the sensitive nature of the incident, MSP officials are withholding information regarding the decedent and the case itself.
