Missing man’s body found near home in Caroline
The body of a missing Caroline County man was found in a wooded area on Monday.
A resident found William Thomas Eggleston, 56, of Woodford about 11:30 a.m., lying along the power-line right of way at the end of Muddville Road, said Maj. Scott Moser of the Caroline Sheriff’s Office.
Eggleston was last seen leaving his residence on foot at about 6 p.m. Nov. 24. His family resides in North Carolina, and it was a friend who reported him missing last week, Moser said. Eggleston was known to have seizures and was taking two types of medication.
Foul play is not suspected, Moser said, but the case is still under investigation.
