Fairfax County police ID man whose body was found near Hunters Wood Plaza
RESTON, Va. (FOX 5 DC) - Fairfax County police have released the identity of a man whose body was found in a wooded area between Hunters Woods Plaza and Breton Court in Reston early Sunday morning.
Police say they found the body of 24-year-old Jose Lorenzo Guillen Mejia of Reston after they responded to a report of gunshots being fired around 1:45 a.m.
Mejia had suffered trauma to his upper body - but police did not specify whether he'd been shot.
Mejia's body was taken to the office of the chief medical examiner to determine his exact cause of death.
If you have any information that might help police in their investigation, call (703) 246-7800.
Meanwhile, earlier this month on June 11, there was another violent crime in Reston a little more than two miles from where Mejia was found.
Police are still looking for a man who they say sexually assaulted a woman walking on a path near Reston Parkway and Baron Cameron Avenue.
Investigators say the 49-year-old woman was hit from behind by a skinny white man in his 50's or 60's with light gray hair and light eyes.
Officers plan to be back out in the area Tuesday afternoon to hand out flyers. They are asking for more information from people who frequent the walking path or nearby shopping center.
Police don't believe the sexual assault is related to the death of Mejia.
Anyone who can identify the suspect in that picture or knows about the man found dead here off hunters woods plaza is urged to contact Fairfax County Police.
