Annandale Man Found Dead in Wilburdale Home

The cause of death has yet to be determined and the man's name has not been released.

Fairfax County police found an Annandale man dead in his home in the Wilburdale community off of Backlick Road on Sunday night.

Officer Don Gotthardt, public information spokesman for the Fairfax County Police Department, told Patch police received a call that lead officers to the 7200 block of Vellex Lane around 9 p.m. on Sunday. They found a 53-year-old man, whose name has not been released, dead upon arrival.

A neighbor reported seeing fire trucks, ambulances and heavy police presence around 9:30 p.m.

The cause of death has yet to be determined, but Gotthardt said the man was struck by a car around Memorial Day and sustained injuries. It is unclear whether the man’s injuries from the Memorial Day accident contributed to his death.

The State Medical Examiner's office in Fairfax County is now in charge of the case, which police have determined is an “unattended death.”
