Human bones found at Kissena Park
Decaying body parts were discovered in a Flushing park, a grisly find that has neighbors on edge and police combing the area.
The badly decomposing body parts were found in a wooded area near a bike path in Kissena Park on Wednesday afternoon.
Bones were strewn about the woods along with tattered clothing and a skull, sources said.
An investigation is underway — the Office of Chief Medical Examiner was sent to the scene and a forensic anthropologist is also working on the case.
Authorities said the remains have been in the park for some time, making it hard to tell the age, race, sex or any other identifying details about the person they belonged to.
