A human skull was found outside a Queens home Monday morning, police said.
The remains were located in front of 108-16 Pine Grove St. in Jamaica around 9:30 a.m., police said.
The city’s medical examiner responded and determined that the remains were human and had no sign of trauma, police sources said.
There were no further details immediately available.
It’s not everyday the NYPD reports a skull lying on the sidewalk in a residential area. But in the obviously click bait generating article (which is not even truncated here and the Post used a google map crop for the lede photo), the home the NY Post is referring is an abandoned zombie house that was cited for a full vacate order by the D.O.B. following a fire and from the looks of it, it might have been abandoned even longer before that incident.
So might as well provide some further details the NYPD couldn’t provide (or wouldn’t).
Perusing the D.O.B. files, not much is known about the prior or even current owner of this blighted property, but this home is steeped in Queens history. It was built and owned nearly a century ago by Abraham Van Sicklen, whose father was a New York supreme court justice who also owned a famous mansion in Jamaica and grandson of a renowned farmer in Brooklyn.
