ST. MICHAELS, Md.– Maryland State Police are investigating the death of an 18-year-old man whose body was found Monday along a rural road in Talbot County.

According to police, the man has been identified as Samuel Cross of Tred Avon Road in Easton. Cross was pronounced dead at the scene.

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.
