Cornelia Marie Arnold was found burned to death inside of a shed in Balls Bluff near Leesburg. The entire incident was very suspicious and no one was ever charged with the crime. And yes I know this took place in Loudoun County, but since no ever goes that forum I'm posting it here...

LEESBURG, Va. - The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office are investigating an apparent homicide after human remains were discovered in a wooded area near Ball's Bluff Regional Park in Leesburg.

Authorities were responding to a report of a burning shed in a remote wooded area at the 42300 block of Balls Bluff Road around 5:47 p.m. Monday. When police and firefighters arrive, they found a woman's body alongside the building.

Police have identified the body as 52-year-old Cornelia Maria Arnold. She lived in the nearby neighborhood on Balls Bluff Road.

The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office says it is unclear how long Arnold was missing before her body was found. As of Tuesday afternoon, investigators are not naming any suspects or motive.

The fire burned down the shed and scorched the ground but it wasn't enough to hide what investigators say is a missing woman's murder.

"We have to technically officially call this a suspicious death, but we are looking at it as a homicide," said Loudoun County Sheriff Stephen Simpson.

About 30 minutes before the fire was reported, Leesburg Police say Arnold's family called, asking how to report a missing person but decided not to file a report. Several people called 911 to report the fire including one man, who police say told them the shed was on fire and that there may be human remains.

The shed where Arnold's body was found is on a future park site in a remote area near Ball’s Bluff Battlefield Park. Arnold's home is right next to the trail leading to the crime scene, about a mile away. Investigators say the killer had to know where to go.

"I would have to venture to say it would be someone familiar with the area, someone who may have been there before and back in through those woods and down the trails to know there are structures in there," said Simpson.

In the neighborhood, it brought back memories of a suspected serial stabber that struck in Leesburg earlier this month.

"It is kind of shocking coming on the heels of what happened in Leesburg with the stabbings, and now this right in our neighborhood. It's just kind of shocking," said neighbor Shelley Young.

Investigators initially said there appeared to be trauma to the body, but now say there is no apparent cause of death. An autopsy is being performed to determine how Arnold died. Police are interviewing her family and aren't ruling out anyone as a suspect.

"The family will be talked to providing they're willing to cooperate,” said Simpson. “The neighbors, co-workers, friends, anyone we can think of to talk to that may be able to shed some light on this," said Simpson.

The sheriff's department searched Arnold's home Monday night but are not saying if they have found anything.

That's not the only body they found that week. Take a look at this...

Man's body found in Leesburg park
Leesburg police discovered the body of a Leesburg man in Ball's Bluff Park in Leesburg around 1 a.m. Wednesday, according to the Leesburg Police Department.

Authorities said that the individual, whose identity has not yet been released, appears to have committed suicide.

The body was discovered after police came upon an abandoned vehicle in the Potomac Crossing neighborhood of Leesburg during a routine patrol, said Leesburg Police spokesman Chris Jones. Police found the body "deep within the woods, close to the river area," Jones said.

On Monday, a woman's body was found in a shed near the park. On Tuesday, she was identified as Cornelia Marie Arnold, 52, of the 400 block of Ball's Bluff Road NE in Leesburg.

But at this time there appears to be no indication of a connection between the man's body and the investigation of Arnold's death, police said.

Detectives with the Leesburg Police Department continue to investigate the matter in conjunction with the Medical Examiner's Office to determine the exact cause of death, police said.

This item has been updated since it was first published.

Body found after Leesburg fire; homicide suspected

Emergency workers responding to reports of a burning shed in the woods near a Leesburg park found the body of a woman that police believe may be Loudoun County's first homicide victim of the year, authorities said Tuesday.

Cornelia Marie Arnold, 52, of the 400 block of Ball's Bluff Road NE in Leesburg was identified after an autopsy on Tuesday, according to police.

Arnold's remains were found about 5:47 p.m. Monday in a secluded, wooded area near Ball's Bluff Regional Park by emergency workers and police responding to reports of smoke visible from a small structure fire on Ball's Bluff Road, according to authorities.

Arnold, who was reported missing to Leesburg police Monday, lived in the Potomac Crossing neighborhood near where her body was found.

The autopsy did not reveal a clear cause of death, according to Sheriff Stephen O. Simpson, who said it could take weeks for the report to be completed.


Police initially said that investigators found wounds on Arnold's body indicating a homicide. But the autopsy did not conclusively support that, Simpson said. "However, we are looking at it as a homicide," he added.

It was not clear how long the body had been near the shed. Investigators believe that the fire may have been set to cover up the remains, Simpson said, noting that the shed was in an area not generally used by the public. Anyone who transported a body there, he said, would likely be someone "familiar with the area."

There was no evidence of weapons at the site, Simpson said. A search warrant was issued Tuesday for the home that the victim shared with her husband, Gerald Arnold, Simpson said, but no potential suspects have been identified.

This was finally ruled a suicide. I know the family and feel very bad for them. They went through a lot.

So sad how some people have zero respect for others.
