CITY OF HATE: 83-Year-Old Man Sucker Punched Walking On NYC Street… 2nd Body Found at Central Park in 24 Hours
CBS Local reports:
The search for a suspect continues in what police called “an unprovoked attack” on an 83-year-old man in the Bronx.
Valentine Hernandez had just crossed Westchester Avenue at Fox Street Monday afternoon when police said he was sucker punched by a much younger and much larger man.
Another body has been found in the water at Central Park, the second such grisly discovery within 24 hours, authorities said.
A park worker found the body of a man in his 30s wearing pants and shoes, but no shirt, floating in Swan Lake near Fifth Avenue and 59th Street Wednesday morning, police said.
It appears the man was in the water for about a week or two at most, and authorities have made a tentative identification on the body from an ID in his pocket, police said.
There were some “wildlife issues” that apparently kept him submerged in the water until he was found, NYPD Chief of Detectives Bob Boyce said Wednesday, who also referred to “some eye damage from some turtles or other wildlife.”
