Cops Need Help To
Identify Body In Bay

By Joan Ward George

Detectives from the 100 Precinct are still unable to identify the floater found in Jamaica Bay on Wednesday, October 27, just under the Marine Parkway-Gil Hodges Memorial bridge. They are reaching out to the community with some additional information on the dead man’s description in the hopes of being able to identify him and inform his family.

According to police, the floater found last week was a black male, 6’1", 148 pounds, thought to be 30 to 45 years of age, with short black hair. His body was found clothed in a blue, short sleeve FUBU sportshirt, BOSS blue jean pants, size 33/34.

Although the body is still being held at the New York City Medical Examiner’s office for further studies, police at this time are not operating under the assumption that the death was a homicide.

Anyone who knows of a missing person matching this description is asked to call Detective Bradshaw at the 100 Precinct Detective Squad at 318-4223.
