Jerimi Meade found buried under leaves and a wooden board

The body of Jerimi Meade was found buried under leaves and covered by a wooden board, according to information released by the Metropolitan Police Department.

Meade, 29, was found by a park employee who was investigating a report of illegal dumping in the area. According to a police report, Meade’s body was found on the back of the property at 419 Burbank St., SE. in a wooded area.

According to the report, Meade was pronounced dead by the medical examiner at 7:45 p.m. Friday. The cause of death was blunt trauma to the head and brain.

Office of the Chief Medical Examiner Chief of Staff, Beverly Fields, said their office’s report was not yet completed, and they would not release information about how long Meade’s body may have been in the woods. A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police Department directed that question to the OCME, but said the case is still under investigation and there are currently no suspects.
