Somebody Got Murdered: Dead Body in Queens (Updated)
View Larger Map
LOCATION: Wooded area near 20th Avenue
TIME: Sunday afternoon at about 1:12 p.m.
Police responded to an assault call this afternoon and found an unidentified Hispanic man in a wooded area near 20th Avenue and 132nd Street (we think -- it's a little tough to tell from what the police are reporting). The victim was declared dead at Flushing Hospital, and police are still investigating his identity and other details.
UPDATE: The Daily News reported today that the still unidentified victim was homeless, and that he had been severely beaten, though his injuries may not have been recent.
