WANTAGH, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Homicide detectives are continuing to investigate the death of man whose body was found in a Long Island park.
The body of a young male, likely in his 20s, was discovered by a passerby near Mill Pond Park Preserve in Wantagh around 4 p.m. Sunday, WCBS 880’s Mike Xirinachs reported.
As CBS 2’s Carolyn Gusoff reported Monday, police said there’s no doubt it’s a homicide.
The male victim was found slumped over a log in a wooded area, police said. Sources told Gusoff it appears the victim was killed execution-style.
“The Nassau County Police Department received a 911 call from a passerby who was walking in Mill Pond here in Wantagh who discovered a body in the woods,” Nassau County Police Inspector Kenneth Lack said.
