Police said that shortly after 6 a.m. Monday, troopers from the Easton Barrack were called to the area of Bozman-Neavitt Road and North St. Michaels Road for the report of a deceased man lying in a gravel portion of the roadway. A green Honda Pilot, which belong to Cross, was found parked near the scene.
