Authorities have identified the man found stabbed on the Northwest Branch Trail in Langley Park as 19-year-old Akinley Osafa Warner.

Officers from Prince George’s County police and the Maryland-National Capital Park Police in Prince George’s responded Saturday about 11:30 p.m. to a report of an unconscious man lying on the ground in a secluded section of the trail near the 1500 block of Quebec Street, according to Lt. Brian Waters, a Park Police spokesman.

The man had suffered stab wounds to his upper body, Waters said. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Waters said police are working to identify the man and determine a motive in the case.

“We don’t have any more details as far as the actual reason why he was in the park,” said Capt. Stanley Johnson, another Park Police spokesman. “It appears he might have been there to meet somebody, but something resulted in him being stabbed.
