Authorities are investigating after the body of a man once on a police most wanted list was found in the western Maryland woods.

Maryland State Police say two hunters found the body Sunday near a farm on Liberty Road outside the city of Frederick.

On Monday, police identified the body as 19-year-old Gennady Errigo of Walkersville. He was on a most wanted list published by the Frederick Police Department earlier this year on charges of burglary and vehicle theft.

State police are characterizing his death as suspicious and seeking information from the public.
