Body found in George Washington National Forest

LURAY, Va. — A body has been found in the George Washington National Forest, the second such discovery in the forest in Virginia this month.

WHSV-TV reports the body that was found over the weekend has been sent to a medical examiner.

Details on the body weren’t immediately available. A message left with the Page County sheriff’s department wasn’t immediately returned Monday.

On Aug. 12 the body of Scott Lilly, a hiker from Indiana, was found near the Appalachian Trail in northwest Amherst County. The FBI lists that victim’s cause of death as suspicious and an investigation is continuing.
