    MD - Annapolis, WhtMale body in Weems Creek, Jul'14 - Zoltan Hamor

    WASHINGTON - Police say a body was found in the water at Weems Creek Bridge in Annapolis Sunday morning.

    The unidentified man's body was recovered around noon Sunday after a passer-by reported spotting it in the water.

    Maryland Natural Resources Police are waiting for forensic investigators to take the body to the medical examiner's office for an autopsy.

    The drawbridge was locked in the open position this weekend for maintenance and to allow boats to pass.

    NRP describes the white man as about 5-foot-10 and weighing about 180 pounds with short brown hair and no beard.

    He was believed to be in his 30s. The man was found with a SCUBA mask and was holding a lit flashlight. He was wearing black and blue swimming trunks and goggles.

    Police are asking for the public's help in identifying the man. Anyone with information is asked to call 410-260-8888.

    This one sounds like a completely solvable MP. Hope this person has his identity discovered and he can be claimed by his loved ones, who must be worried about him.

    I hope so, too. Surely someone is missing a SCUBA loving family member. Hopefully it doesn't take too long.

    I always wondered why somebody doesn't do something about that. Then I realized I was somebody.

    local news just reported that he's been identified and is suspected of shoplifting from a Zumiez store in Ann Arundel Mall.

    oddly, this is the second Zumiez store in the news after the shooting at nearby Columbia Mall several months ago.

    That is not the same person. He was found in Hanover and the guy in this post was in Annapolis.

    Couldn't have been there too long if the torch was still working? Any reason you would go diving with a torch in this area? What would he be looking for?

    I haven't got a clue what he would be looking for. There is nothing spectacular there. Its odd to me that he was found with the flashlight in his hand still.

    why would someone put on a snorkel mask and swim trunks and carry a flashlight alone in the water? He must have been local to the area....but it is very odd to me.

    He may have lost something down there and thought he could find with a mask and flashlight. Car keys, maybe?

    LOL yeah, there's no way a shoplifting suspect would've had the time during pursuit to put on scuba gear and strip down to swim trunks.

    Found this image of the bridge on FourSquare, along with "there's a lot of nice houses around there." Doesn't look like a creek to me, but like a river! Can any locals verify this IS the bridge??

    Maybe he is/was someone from the Naval Academy practicing scuba techniques for a summer class ?

    It is a creek and leads to the Severn River. Annapolis is a very wealthy city with miles and miles of waterfront property and expensive yachts and mansions.

    I think the odd thing is that no one is looking for this man. Hasn't anyone missed work, missed phone calls, etc? Its not a place someone from out of town would likely choose to go snorkeling. Plus the water is murky and muddy and snorkeling there makes no sense.
