Two hunters discovered the body

FREDERICK, Md. - Maryland State Police announced on Wednesday that the death of a 19 year-old man near Frederick has been ruled an apparent homicide. 

Police are investigating what could have lead to the death of 19 year-old Gennady Errigo.

“They are thinking there is more information out there that can certainly help close this case,” said Spokesperson, Maryland State Police, Elena Russo. 

The investigation began when two hunters discovered the victim, Gennady Errigo, along a woods line of a farm in the 9300-block of Liberty Road. 

Errigo was also identified as one of Frederick Police Department's Most Wanted in May 2017.
