UPDATE (4:52 PM): This case has been upgraded to a homicide investigation.
UPDATE (4:40 PM): Multiple sources confirm the suspicious death investigation involves a body that was found in the stream area across from the Mann Field third base. As I speculated below, this may be tied to the young man who was reported missing this week and who was last seen in the park. Police have not confirmed that as yet.
UPDATE (1:04 PM): Chief Cook on scene.

UPDATE (1:03 PM): Here’s hoping the body that has been found is not this young man.
Location is not far from Beverley Park where a young man was found dead last month. https://t.co/Wn61Y2ESEB

The Alexandria Police Department is conducting a suspicious death investigation in Four Mile Run Park. Expect police activity in the Arlandria neighborhood area on Commonwealth Avenue.
This makes the fourth death investigation this year. We’ll update the post as more becomes available.
