Authorities discovered a woman’s body inside the trunk of a car parked in South Ozone Park Wednesday morning.
The woman, believed to be 26-year-old Destini Smothers, was found inside a black Toyota Camry, parked outside of 149-57 Lefferts Blvd., around 9:51 a.m. on Wednesday, March 10.
A tow truck operator discovered the body after they had come to move the abandoned car, which didn’t have any license plates, according to the NYPD.
Officers from the 106th Precinct cordoned off the residential block as the investigation began.
Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz arrived at the crime scene around mid-day on Wednesday. (?!)
Smothers, who was from Troy, New York, went missing in November 2020. She was last seen at Bowlero, a bowling alley in Woodside, according to the NYPD.
Blood and guts. How does the trained singer Katz handle this all the time? One tough momma, no?
I wonder how long the car sat there with no plates and how many 311 complaints were on it.
This story will be forgotten in no time during the 24/7 news cycle in concert with the city's phobia/contempt for transparency.
NYC under DeBozio has become a historic disgrace.
But Hey, $6,000 more new debt per person but I got $1,400 so it’s okay.
I'm sure they ticketed the shit out of that car first.
Maybe if the cops ever actually checked some of the cars regularly reported for being in one spot for weeks and months stuff like this wouldn't happen.
At least they didn't tow her to the pound and let it sit a year
There were 3 311 complaints of an abandoned vehicle (with plates) at this address, the first on 10/04/2020. The first one was closed with "The Police Department responded to the complaint and determined that police action was not necessary." i.e. the cops didn't think it was abandoned. The next two were closed with "This complaint does not fall under the Police Department's jurisdiction." i.e. the vehicle didn't have a plate and was therefore derelict, making it DSNY's problem, but actually forwarding the request to them is too much effort.
New York City is no place to live.
