    Boy, that is scary...are Spring and Sandy Spring adjacent, I wonder?
    Just my opinion, of course.

    --On March 15, the body of a 47-year-old man who lived in a homeless camp was found near the ramp of eastbound Interstate 495 in Hillandale. --On March 31, the body of a man police believe to be a 25-year-old with an unknown address was found with gunshot wounds in a wooded area in Ashton. His death was ruled a homicide by the medical examiner's office.

    Sandy Springs body:

    Sunday, June 6, 2010

    The body is that of a bald, white man between 25 and 40 years of age and 5-foot-3-inches to 5-foot-8-inches tall. He weighed 138 pounds, according to Montgomery County Police.

    The man was wearing a white T-shirt, khaki-colored "Structure" brand pants and has a partial dental plate for three upper center teeth, police said. The man has no tattoos or other identifying characteristics, and police are asking the public for information about his death.

    June 11, 2010
    Detectives from the Montgomery County Police Major Crimes Division – Homicide/Sex Section have arrested two suspects early this morning for the death of Manuel Guevara Lovo, age 51, of the 9000 block of Pennsylvania Avenue in Silver Spring. Lovo was found dead underneath tall bamboo trees on June 4 in the 18000 block of Brooke Road in Sandy Spring.

    The preliminary results from the Medical Examiner’s Office have ruled his death a homicide and the manner of death was stab wounds.
    Manuel Zelaya-Garcia, 31, and Mariela Vasquez-Melgar, 34, , were arrested Friday, the police said. They were charged with first-degree murder in the death of Manuel Guevara Lovo, 51, the police said.

    According to information provided by the police, the two suspects and the victim all lived in the 9000 block of Pennsylvania Avenue in the Silver Spring area.

    The other one was ID'd soon as well:

    A second body found in Montgomery County on Friday was identified as that of a man wanted for attempted murder in Howard County.

    Howard County Police found the body of 46-year-old Robert Lewis Thornton of the 1200 block of Knoll Mist Lane in Gaithersburg about 3 p.m. Friday, floating in the reservoir on Brighton Dam Road near Brookeville.


    Howard County police confirmed that Thornton was wanted there on charges of attempted first- and second-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault, attempted carjacking, attempted armed robbery and reckless endangerment in connection with a May 12 incident.

    That night, at about 11:15 p.m., Howard County police responded to Brighton Dam Road in Clarksville near the county line after an assault was reported.

    Howard County police said they believe that Thornton and a female friend, a Howard County woman in her 40s who is not being identified, had an argument in a neighboring county. As the woman left the area in her vehicle, Thornton followed her in his car, police said.
