Earlier this year, in an unrelated incident, another Virginia woman's body was found, named Hannah Choi. She was 35 at the time of her death.

According to a spokesperson from the Fairfax County Police Department, deputies from the Charles County Sheriff's Department were called to the park Thursday morning after a body was found in the woods.

Arrest warrants have been issued for Choi's ex-boyfriend, 27-year-old Joel Mosso Merino, for second-degree murder and felony disposal of a body. He has yet to be apprehended.
