Body Found on a Reston Path Identified

Police have identified the body of the man found on a Reston path near French Horn Lane on Monday, Jan. 14 at about 11:20 a.m. as Christoph Walker, 51. Walker is from Sacramento, Calif. and has been visiting a relative in the 11200 block of Harbor Court, Reston. He apparently went out for a run and did not return home.
