The body of a Lutherville man missing since last April was found Sunday by hikers in a heavily wooded area of the Loch Raven Reservoir.
Brian Keith Wallen, 52, is a presumed suicide, though the Office of the State Medical Examiner has not yet ruled on the cause and manner of death. Investigators do not suspect foul play.
Wallen, of the 500 block of Wyngate Road, was reported missing on April 28, 2016. Police at the time found a suicide note at his home, and they found his silver Jeep near the intersection of Old Bosley and Dulaney Valley roads. An extensive search by BCoPD revealed no trace of Wallen, however.
Wallen was wanted on a Federal Criminal Complaint filed by the U.S. Attorney for Maryland alleging his involvement in a mail fraud scheme.
His body was found at least a mile from where police had found his vehicle almost a year ago, in a heavily wooded area east of Dulaney Valley Road, about a half-mile from the Villa Maria School.
