FBI searching for evidence in local park


The trail leading to the investigation site. Further access is blocked.


UPDATE: According to sources near the site, construction workers on the sewer project at Holmes Run Stream Valley Park found a body buried four feet deep. Fingerprints led to a man in custody who told police another body is buried there, too. The crime appears to be gang related. The FBI is closely guarding the site and not letting anyone get close nor providing details. The investigation is still going on, as of May 21.


People living near Lillian Carey Park in the Mason District might have been disturbed by a large number of FBI agents in the area this weekend.

Neither the Fairfax County Police Department nor the FBI are giving details about what is going on. “Our agency is assisting the FBI with an ongoing investigation and evidence recovery,” said police spokesperson Lucy Caldwell. “There is no threat to public safety.”

Lillian Carey Park is adjacent to the Holmes Run Stream Valley Park. It's close to Columbia Park and is  across the street from the Lake Barcroft dam.

Caldwell declined to confirm rumors that the activity under investigation is gang related, but did say rumors about the discovery of a body in the park are not true.

FBI spokesperson Lindsay Godwin said there was no specific criminal incident this weekend and that the FBI was at the park to gather evidence. “There is no threat to the community,” she said.

  1. What the heck!

    I walk the Holmes Run Stream Park across from LB dam when it was open before the sewer disaster and never saw this park.

  2. The Lillian Carey Park is basically between the Bailey's Community Center and Holmes Run - it is approx. 57 acres in size.

  4. How 'bout we all let the local police and FBI do what they do best..their jobs! Rest assured if there was anything either of them felt all of us needed to know, we learn of it.

  5. They should send the bodies and the gangsters to some nasty third world country that they most likely came from so that justice will be served.

    1. You use that word loosely. This is not about race, creed or color, its about filtering the good from the bad. And we let everyone in, and those that are just no good should be returned to sender.

      BTW, do you lock your door at night? If you do you, that is an indication that you may have a prejudice bent against someone from entering your house.

      Liberal does not = stupid
      Conservative does not = racist

  7. In 2013, there were reports of headless chickens, animal sacrifices, flowers, cash, and other items in that park possibly connected with Santeria ceremonies.

    1. We live in such an interesting area: cross section of headless chickens, headless trees and headless people. I guess it makes for good news.

    1. Agreed. This is quite disturbing. Not sure what to make of this but the lack of info makes it worse.

  10. FOX 5 News reported on it and showed the Annandale Blog briefly in the broadcast. The FBI isn't talking to the media.

  12. Ridiculous, not all gangs are from third world country's. Get your head out of your ass and realize that no matter what race killing is wrong, and even if there white, black, yellow or blue they'll be punished equally. Stop with the corny racism and act like a human being. Let's let the Officers & Agents do their jobs.
