Homicide victim's grandmother speaks out after grandson's remains identified in Md.
WASHINGTON (ABC7) —
Police are investigating a homicide after identifying the skeletal remains found last October along Suitland Parkway in Prince George’s County.
The Metropolitan Police Department said Thursday that the remains belonged to 22-year-old Marty William McMillan Jr., of Southeast D.C., who went critically missing on April 23, 2017.
The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore determined on Tuesday that McMillan died of multiple gunshot wounds.
McMillan had last been seen in the 2900 block of M Street, SE in D.C. after telling his father he was going on a date with a person he met on a social media site, according to ABC7's Sam Ford. Police also told Ford in June 2017 that McMillan’s case was moved to a homicide as a precaution.
McMillan’s remains, while not identified at the time, were located along Suitland Parkway in Forestville, Maryland, by the United States Park Police on Oct. 30, 2017, according to authorities. Police said the remains were found along the eastbound lanes of Suitland Parkway, east of Forestville Road.
ABC7’s Brad Bell reported the remains appeared to have been found in a wooded area.
D.C. police said McMillan’s death appeared to have taken place in the District, meaning they will have investigative responsibility of the case.
Police ask that anyone with information about the case call 202-727-9099. Anonymous information may be submitted by sending a text message to 50411.
A $25,000 reward is being offered to anyone that provides information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for any homicide committed in D.C.
