UPDATED: Man Jumps Off Southbound I-95 Bridge

Man jumped from interstate at around 12:30 p.m., according to MD State Police.

8:20 p.m. update: Officials have not released the identity of the man who jumped off the southbound I-95 bridge into Patapsco Valley State Park. 

At approximately 3:45 p.m., a ranger at the park's South Street entrance in Halethorpe said that "an accident" had occurred and that the South Street entrance would be closed for the next several hours.

The apparent suicide is the latest tragedy to take place in the park.

In July of last year, a 46-year-old Elkridge woman died at the Avalon area of the park after taking an indeterminate number of pills. The body of a Catonsville man who died from natural causes was found in the park in June of 2011 during a search for Phylicia Barnes. In October of last year, two people reportedly committed suicide by overdosing at the park.

Maryland Department of Natural Resources Police have not returned a call seeking information.

I know the person quite well too. I was actually in contact with others about him the actual day this tragic event occurred. I think it is best to keep that information anonymous as a show of respect to the family. I can tell you that he was a fantastic guy, funloving personality, extremely bright, with a decent career and a great family.This entire situation came as a complete shock to me and many others that know him. Let's allow him to rest in peace without passing his name around like a bunch of gossiping teens.

Hi there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform http://jualeigeronline.blogspot.com/ jual eiger online and http://jualrumahgayungsari.blogspot.com/ tipe jual rumah gayungsari
