Body found in well in Pr. George’s

A body was found in a well in the Fort Washington area of Prince George's County Thursday afternoon, authorities said.

The body was found just after noon in a well in the 11900 block of Old Fort Road, said Cpl. Larry Johnson, a Prince George's County police spokesman. He said he did not know if the body was that of a man or woman, and detectives were on the scene investigating the case.
