BALTIMORE (AP) - Baltimore County Police say a man who was indicted in a $50 million telemarketing office supply scam has been found dead at Loch Raven Reservoir.

The department said in a news release that hikers found the body of 52-year-old Brian Keith Wallen of Lutherville Sunday in a heavily wooded area.

Wallen was indicted last year on federal mail fraud and conspiracy charges. His lawyer reported him missing in April and investigators found a suicide note at Wallen’s home. His car was found at the reservoir shortly after Wallen went missing.

An FBI spokesman said in September that the agency did not believe Wallen was dead. The agency launched a billboard campaign from Baltimore to Miami for information on his whereabouts.

Police said Thursday Wallen is presumed to have taken his own life.
