Human bones found at Kissena Park

From NBC:

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.

Did they ever find Jimmy Hoffa's remains?

Let me dust off my Bible. I don't remember that verse.

Good thing they found it. It would be covered with snow now.

This discovery in a public park comes on the heels of the recent city crime reduction press release and conference touting the 0.2 % drop in murders.

That area had a disemboweled murder victim a year ago.

stay aware of your surroundings, especially around parks these days.

And the decay of Flushing continues. What a beautiful area it used to be. It can still be saved. Where there is a will, there is a way.

Some of us refuse to sit back while area turns to crap. Prayers to the victim. Keep an eye out.

If anybody reading has no knowledge that Kissena Park has LONG BEEN a dumping ground for bodies and body parts for decades, they are ignorant of some key facts.
This is nothing new! Grisly? Yes, but nothing new!
In addition, several poor souls have hanged themselves in the park since the 1990s.
Maybe it's the proximity to two cemeteries that makes the park a bad vibe spot.
Maybe the old criminal mobs, recent tongs and gangs prefer its isolated location for dumping their hit victims.
Who really knows. Certainly not the police department? they?
These kind of stories sure can hurt the price of real estate nearby.
Maybe that's why the crime stats have been muffled by law enforcement.
It's bad for the real estate business. And we all know that real estate and development interests feed the campaign coffers of many fat cat incumbent politicians.

There was a hit by a loanshark a few years back near the baseball fields (at Kissena Blvd. and Booth).

Apparently the guy got deep in debt and couldn't pay. Wasn't a mob thing. I remember this one well.
