Police told Newsday this week that Floyd died as a result of "the actions of another."

In a news release earlier this week the Nassau police said, "according to detectives, information was developed that a body was buried in the Roosevelt Preserve at the end of Frederick Avenue."

After a search by homicide detectives and other police units they found the body, the statement said.

The preserve stretches along the Meadowbrook Parkway on the eastern edge of Roosevelt.

Crime Stoppers and the Nassau County Police Department's Homicide Squad ask "anyone with information about this murder, or [who] may have seen anything suspicious in the vicinity of the Roosevelt Preserve in the time period stated," to make a confidential phone call to Crime Stoppers at (800) 244-TIPS, or the homicide squad at (516) 573-7788.
