crime scene

(Nov. 1, 2019) A 41-year-old man was found dead this past Friday afternoon on Old Ocean City Boulevard in Berlin, the Berlin Police Department said Tuesday.

Jonathan Michael Driessen, of Berlin, was found in a ditch on Oct. 25 behind Rite Aid on 10119 Old Ocean City Blvd., according to police.

Police answered a call around 3:18 p.m. from a person who discovered Driessen’s body while he was walking his dog.

The Worcester County Bureau of Investigation assumed the case, and no foul play is suspected, according to police. 

Driessen had been missing for a while, according to detectives on scene.

According to the on-call medical examiner, Driessen did not have any “unusual signs of trauma,” police said.

Driessen was then taken to the chief medical examiner’s office in Baltimore for an autopsy to determine a cause of death, according to police.
