Death Investigation - Mechanicsville

Mechanicsville, Maryland - On August 16, 2014, at 8:19 PM, deputies responded to a private residence for the report of a person deceased inside the home. On arrival, deputies located a 33 year old, male, dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.  The Criminal Investigations Division was contacted, responded to the scene, and assumed the investigation.
Detectives determined the deceased’s family had been unable to contact him over a short period of time. Family members contacted another relative who lives in the area to check on him. The relative responded to the residence and after getting no response at the door, forced entry into the home. The relative found the deceased in the living room and called police. The deceased was transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore where an autopsy will be performed.  Foul play is not suspected at this time in the investigation.
