FYI-Police everywhere and appearance of crime scene. They were telling everyone to find alternate routes b/c it would be a while. Closure is just south of airport park parking lot with porta potties. If you are heading south, I suggest you go cut through Pentagon marina and follow Pentagon pedestrian signs to come out near Pentagon City. All these years and I found a new "route".
Good luck to those getting home with a few added miles.
The U.S. Park Police are investigating the body of a woman found Monday afternoon at Gravelly Point Park.
The body was found about 30 feet off a bike path, spokesman Paul Brooks told Patch. The park is located along George Washington Memorial Parkway, just north of Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.
Investigators have not yet identified the woman, Brooks said. He was not sure who found her. The U.S. Park Police were called at about 2 p.m. Monday.
The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police Department on Sunday asked for the public's help in finding 83-year-old Victoria Kong. Kong was last seen walking north toward Gravelly Point at about 6:30 p.m. Friday.
Brooks did not yet know if it was Kong who was found.
"We don't know," he said. "We don't speculate."
The Arlington County Fire Department was briefly on the scene after being called out to help an unresponsive person, fire Capt. Gregg Karl told Patch. The person was determined to be dead on arrival.
Initial reports that the body was found floating in the water were incorrect, Brooks said.
