Dead body is found along Ocean Parkway

The skeletal remains of an unidentified dead body were found Saturday on the side of Ocean Parkway between Cedar and Gilgo Beaches, police officials said.

Homicide detectives are investigating after the remains were found at about 2:45 p.m. when canine officer John Mallia and his dog, Blue, were doing a routine training exercise in the area.

A police spokeswoman said detectives could not even immediately identify whether the remains are of a man or a woman and what was found is being brought to the medical examiner for analysis.

Detectives ask anyone with information to contact the homicide squad at 631-852-6392 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 800-220-TIPS.
