On September 21, 2015, the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office received a call from a concerned citizen in reference to an acquaintance of his who had been missing for days. Deputies responded to the area of Mountain Falls Park and were informed the missing person was Jeffrey Charles Koller, also known as “Dutch”, age 59. All attempts to locate Mr. Koller were unsuccessful at that time. On September 22, 2015, the same concerned citizen contacted the Sheriff’s Office stating that he and another unnamed person conducted a walking search of the area and located a deceased body along a gravel road leading to Chipmonk Trail in the Mountain Falls Park area. Deputies responded to the scene and discovered a partially decomposed body of a white male. Due to the decomposition, the body could not be identified as the missing Mr. Koller. The body was transported to the Medical Examiner’s Officer in Fairfax, Virginia. After conducting an autopsy on September 24, 2015, the Medical Examiner’s Office officially identified the body as that of Jeffrey Charles Koller and concluded that the cause of death was a result of multiple gunshot wounds and the death was classified as a homicide.
