Help identify this snake

Asked October 14, 2018, 10:03 PM EDT

Hello, I found this snake in a bug trap in our basement. Can you help me ID it? Our home backs up to rock creek park. Do you think it came in to hibernate? Is it likely it would have traveled in with others? Deciding how exhaustively I should search the home for others Thanks!

If possible, our snake expert would like to see a photo of the head to accurately identify the snake.
