Police seek ID of remains
The NYPD is asking the public’s help in identifying the victim of a homicide, based on composite sketches of the man nearly seven months after his remains were found in various bags in Queens.
On April 12, NYPD detectives responded to a 911 call reporting that human remains had been found by the CSX railroad tracks across from 72-36 43rd Ave. in Woodside. A man who was collecting cans in the area had come across a torn bag that had a skull inside.
Detectives then found more body parts in bags that had been strewn around the area. The remains were taken to the Medical Examiner’s office, where it was determined that the remains were that of a 30-year-old white male.
The NYPD has released composite sketches of the victim.
