FREDERICK, Md. (AP) - Frederick County sheriff’s deputies are investigating the death of a Westminster man whose body was found along the Urbana Pike in the Frederick area.

Sgt. Jennifer Bailey said Monday that the only obvious injuries to 45-year-old Jeffrey Mathis were some abrasions on his right elbow.

Bailey says a motorist found the body lying near the entrance to a car dealership along the busy retail-and-commercial strip at about 10:45 a.m. on Sunday.

She says investigators are awaiting a state medical examiner’s report on the cause and manner of death.
