Md.’s largest casino collects $586 million; Va. sheriff seeks shooting victim’s ID

Arundel Mills casino collects $586 million

Thirteen was a lucky number for Maryland Live.

The state’s largest casino collected $586 million in gross gambling revenue in 2013, according to data released Tuesday by the Maryland State Lottery and Gaming Control Agency.

The pretax haul included nearly $153 million from live-action table games, which Maryland Live began offering in April.

Maryland’s four casinos generated nearly $750 million in total gambling revenue last year. About $415 million was collected in taxes, including $315 million that went to the Education Trust Fund.

Statewide, casino revenue in December totaled $65 million, with Maryland Live contributing the bulk of it: $52 million. It was the Arundel Mills casino’s eighth consecutive month of $50 million or more in gross gambling revenue.

Loudoun sheriff seeks to ID shooting victim

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s help in identifying a man whose skeletal remains were found more than 25 years ago near Purcellville.

The sheriff’s office said the body, wrapped in a blanket, was discovered March 8, 1988, on Sunny Ridge Road. The man had been shot, the office said.

Sheriff’s officials described the man as white or Hispanic, in his 50s, about 5 foot 8 to 5 foot 10, having a “stocky build” and maybe reddish-brown hair, and wearing Sears-brand black polyester pants with a 42-inch waist and 29-inch inseam, as well as red socks. A full upper denture was found next to his body, according to the office.
