Midshipman Found Dead, Possibly Linked To Ongoing Investigation
On Monday, a Naval Academy midshipman was found dead after his car was found in a creek in Anne Arundel County. The Naval Academy police and the Naval Criminal Investigative Service are investigating the incident in a possible connection with an ongoing investigation. The family of the midshipman has been notified.
The U.S. Naval Academy says a midshipman has been found dead after an automobile accident in a creek.
The academy said Monday a white SUV was found in College Creek, near the Nimitz library on academy grounds in Annapolis.
An Anne Arundel County Fire Department dive team searched the vehicle, which was found Sunday, and discovered a man’s body underwater near the seawall.
The search was initiated when a passerby noticed a concrete bollard and a steel chain along McNair Road was missing.
The academy says the midshipman’s family has been notified. The school says it is withholding the victim’s identity until 24 hours after the notification of kin.
The SUV was recovered Monday morning and was found to be registered to the man found dead.
