Police ID Second Body Found in Md. River

Maryland State Police have identified the man whose body was found in the Susquehanna River last week, the same day the body of a missing teen was found nearby.

The victim is 53-year-old Darryl Harper, of Richmond, Va.

He was last seen March 26 after checking himself out of a Pennsylvania mental hospital.

Phylicia Barnes, 16, disappeared December 26, 2010, while visiting her half-sister in Baltimore. Barnes lived with her mother in North Carolina.

Both bodies were found in the river, a few miles apart.

Police said they do not know the cause of death for either victim nor have they found any apparent link between the two.
