Previously the police stated that some info has come in, but the investigation was going nowhere.
However, it has been reported on 2/11/09 that a paper laundry tag with the name “Carlos Quintero” handwritten on it was found attached to the man’s jeans. The number 22460 is also on the tag.
To recap, a body was found early Thursday morning (2/5/09) near the intersection of rt. 270 and Father Hurley Boulevard in northern Germantown.
Detectives are investigating the death as a homicide. The man had been shot.
On Thursday, 2/5/09, at approximately 4:10 a.m., a passing motorist found the body. It is not known where and when the victim was killed.
The victim is a Hispanic male who is believed to be in his late 30’s or early 40’s, 6′ tall, weighing 260 pounds, and has short dark hair. He was wearing a brown knit cap, brown leather waist-length jacket, blue jeans with embroidered designs on the rear pockets, and brown ankle-high cowboy style boots. He was also wearing a brown leather belt with a large belt buckle. He was wearing jewelry which included four necklaces, three of which were beaded and one that was silver in color with a gold colored skeleton key charm.
It has now been revealed that the nab has been shot, but police don’t know if the body had been afterwards dumped in that Germantown highway ramp location. Of course, this is being treated as a homicide.
News8 reports that one source said that the man had been shot elsewhere and his body dumped on the exit ramp. However, at this point in the investigation, police say it is unclear where and when the man was murdered.
The police now state that the man may not even be from Montgomery County.
Father Hurley Blvd. is named after Father Hurley, of course. He was a Catholic priest in Germantown who started Mother Seton Catholic Church.
