Police canvass Yonkers park after body found
? Tibbett?s Brook Park was reopened Friday morning a day after an unidentified body was discovered by a park worker stuffed inside a suitcase.
Police drew up a flyer describing the details of the case and are bringing it to the attention of joggers and park patrons. The body, believed to be that of a 50 or 60-year-old Hispanic male, was found near the park entrance by a county employee.
Police believe the body was wheeled to the park entrance because they found track marks from the suitcase in the grass.
?[We] went to look at it real closely, started to unzip it? and at that time a leg, what appeared to be a leg, flopped out of the suitcase," Capt. Thomas Gleason, of the Westchester County Police Department, said.
Those who frequent the park say they hope the killer is caught soon and that they will continue to go to Tibbett?s Brook Park.
Police say the man?s body does not show visible signs of violence, but they hope the autopsy being performed Friday at the medical examiner?s office will allow them to determine the cause of death.
Anyone with any information about the case is asked to contact Westchester County police at 914-864-7916.
