Police: Falling death of man in Landmark does not appear to be suspicious

Alexandria Police say that the recent death of an adult male in the Landmark Area on Sunday morning (April 25) does not appear to be suspicious in nature.

Police found an adult male dead after “an apparent fall” in the 300 block of Yoakum Parkway at around 6 a.m., according to an APD tweet. The area where the incident occurred is full of apartment buildings between Edsall Road and Stevenson Avenue.

“It did not appear to be suspicious in nature,” APD Senior Public Information Officer Amanda Paga told ALXnow. “It remains an active investigation. The ME (medical examiner) will determine the cause and manner of death.”
