FBI identifies woman found dead in Catoctin Mountain Park

THURMONT — FBI officials announced Thursday that they’ve identified a woman whose dismembered body was found last month at a park near the Camp David presidential retreat.

The woman was identified as Joanna Michelle Amaya, 21, of Gaithersburg, the FBI said in a release. She was also known as Dior Reyes.

Hikers found a portion of Amaya’s body in Catoctin Mountain Park in Thurmont on June 12. Hikers discovered a separated foot in a remote area well off any established paths, FBI spokeswoman Joy Jiras said last month. Most of the rest of Amaya’s body was located less than 100 yards away, she said.

The cause of Amaya’s death has not been determined, the FBI said.
