Meagan Fitzgerald, NBC4

A man was found dead along the Northwest Branch Trail in Maryland on Thursday morning, just a day after another man and a dog were fatally shot on a D.C. trail.

Three people walking along the trail in Adelphi discovered the man's body about 8 a.m. He had trauma to the body, and police said he was murdered.

The victim was found just yards away from a playground. 

Maryland National Capital Park Police and Prince George's County Police are investigating.

Also Thursday morning, a woman was stabbed in the neck in an apparently unprovoked attack as she walked along a trail in Northern Virginia. Police are searching for her attacker.
