    A mystery is growing in Kensington, Md. where the body of a jogger was found along train tracks.  More than one week after the tragedy, police are still not able to identify him.

    On Sunday, July 25, at around 1:30 p.m., a CSX train conductor noticed a person lying in the eastbound rails about 50 yards east of the MARC station. The conductor called police, but the man was beyond rescue by the time emergency and medical services personnel arrived.

    The victim is believed to be an avid runner.  He was 5'8", 120 pounds and appeared to be in his 30s. He was wearing dark blue running shorts and white Avia running shoes with gray and orange trim.

    So far, Montgomery County Police have not received a missing persons report that matches the man's descriptions. No relatives or  co-worker have yet to come forward. 

    Police released a sketch of the man in the hopes that someone will recognize him.
