L.I. Police Find Missing Brooklyn Man’s Body In Trunk Of Car

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Police found a dead body in the trunk of a car on Friday on Long Island.

Police said they responded to a call for a possible recovered stolen car on Academy Street in Oceanside where they discovered a 2011 Hyundai Sonata with traces of blood in the vehicle.

Upon further search, they opened the trunk and found 32-year-old Daniel Scialom of Brooklyn. Scialom had been reported missing on April 14.

Police said Scialom died of an apparent gunshot wound.

No one in the neighborhood knew where the car was from.

“I thought it was their in-laws who came up from Florida and we thought it was a rent a car and Tom, who lives there, was out of town on business and he came home and said where’s that car from?” resident Al Larsen said.

The investigation is ongoing.

Detectives ask that anyone with information in regards to the case call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS.


    Danny was one of my best friends and even though he may have had the rep of being a hard a** he had the biggest heart and would do anything for the people close to him. No one deserves what happened to him and I send out my deepest regrets to his family may he rest in peace I miss him so much :(


    have some respect people. danny was one of the most well liked and respected people. this is very sad what happend to him, i wish people would stop writing such comments. Let the family be in peace and let there son rest in peace. Danny was a very happy and thoughtful person

    What the reporters don’t tell you is that Daniel Scialom wasn’t killed on Academy Street. He was killed somewhere else,dumped in the trunk and abandoned on this block. The neighbors here thought the car belonged to the in-laws who were not home at the time the car was abandoned.

    The car was abandoned in the middle of the block, so half the block wouldn’t have noticed anyway. Academy Street is a dead end block so most of us leave our homes and drive towards Long Beach Road.
