HUNTINGTON, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — The body of a 23-year-old Long Island woman was discovered off a walking path Thursday morning at the Froehlich Farm Nature Preserve in Huntington, police said.
A man walking on the path discovered the body of Sarah Strobel, of Huntington Station, authorities said. Police told WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall they are awaiting autopsy results but believe the death is suspicious.
“My concern is I just still don’t want it to be somebody I know,” a woman who lives nearby told Hall before police identified the body. “It could be a schoolteacher. It could be a mother walking her dog.
The area is “just not known for this. Anything — any murders or homicide or whatever — it’s really not known for that,” the woman added.
Police are asking anyone with information about the case to call Crime Stoppers at 800-220-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
