Prince George’s County Police are investigating a homicide after a body was found near a walking trail by Lake Artemesia.
A citizen found the male victim’s body at around 9:20 p.m. Wednesday in the 5700 block of Nevada Street, about 200 yards into a wooded area in Berwyn Heights, police told Fox 5.

The victim’s identity will be released once his family has been notified, police told WTOP.
