Police Find Body In Fort Washington Well

FORT WASHINGTON, MD (CBSDC) — A body has been found in a well, Prince George’s County Police confirmed.

Police responded to the 11900 block of Old Fort Road in Fort Washington around noon on Thursday where the body was located.

Rescue officials were also called to the scene. However, attempts to recover the body from the well have been suspended due to darkness and concerns over safety of rescue personnel.

Police have not identified the body although Alexandria investigators also responded to the scene.

A Prince George’s Police official told WNEW he did not know why investigators from the nearby jurisdiction were at the location.

Alexandria community activist Lenwood Harris has been missing since September. An abandoned car belonging to Harris was found in the county last October.
