MARYLAND CITY, Md. — Police say a man who was found dead inside an overturned car along the Baltimore-Washington Parkway had been reported missing earlier this month.
U.S. Park Police identified the man late Monday as 26-year-old Marcus Freeman of Laurel.
Police say his car was spotted earlier Monday by a contractor who was cutting grass along the parkway. The car had traveled several hundred feet down a steep embankment into a heavily wooded area near the Route 198 exit in Maryland City. It was overturned and partially submerged in water.
