— Maryland State Police released a composite sketch in hopes it leads them to the identity of remains found back in September.

On September 22, 2017 remains were found along I-695 in Anne Arundel County. The remains were found down an embankment by a motorist who stopped on the shoulder of the inner loop ramp of I-695 to Route 10 south.

After months of investigating police believe the remains are of an Asian/Hispanic male, 5'2", in his late 20's or early 30's. The remains were clothed but there was no ID on or near the body.

The manner of death, determined by the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore, was trauma to his head. While the cause is still undetermined the case is being investigated as a homicide.

Anyone with information on this death or information on the victim is asked to call Maryland State Police at 410-966-7881. Callers can remain anonymous.
