Man Found in Md. Yard May Have Been Electrocuted

Prince George's County fire officials say a man found dead in his yard may have been electrocuted.

Fire department spokesman Mark Brady says crews were called to a home on Oxman Road in Palmer Park on Wednesday evening for a report of an unconscious man in his yard.

Brady says the man in his 30s was found with electrical wires on or around his body and he was pronounced dead on the scene. The man's injuries appeared consistent with electrocution, but officials say the state medical examiner's office will perform an autopsy to determine the cause of his death.

Police say they are investigating the death.
