Police Identify Woman Whose Body Was Found in Rockville Parking Lot

Police say the woman found dead in a Rockville, Maryland, parking lot Monday was a 55-year-old Delaware resident.

Using fingerprint analysis, detectives identified the woman as Lori Denise Detwiler of Millsboro, Delaware, Montgomery County Police said Tuesday.

Detwiler was carrying no identification when she was found dead, police said.

A man found her body about 6:30 a.m. while on his way to the Twinbrook Metro station, in a parking lot near the fence at the rear of 12349 Parklawn Drive. The parking lot borders an apartment building, and residents often walk through the lot to reach the Metro station, police said.

There was no evidence of trauma to Detwiler's body, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner determined. Toxicology results are being processed. 

Detectives are investigating this as a suspicious death. They're asking anyone with information to call police at 240-773-5070.
